"Take My Hand" as written by and Charles-andre/bouvier Comeau....
Hey Hey
Hey Hey

Sometimes I feel like everybody's got a problem
Sometimes I feel like nobody wants to solve them
I know that people say we're never going to make it
But I know we're going to get through this
(Close your eyes and please don't let me go)
Don't, Don't, Don't, Don't let me go now
(Close your eyes don't let me let you go)
Don't, Don't, Don't

Take my hand tonight
Let's not think about tomorrow
Take my hand tonight
We could find some place to go
Cause our hearts are locked forever
And our love will never die
Take my hand tonight
One last time

The city sleeps and we're lost in the moment
Another kiss says we're lying on the pavement
If they could see us they would tell us that we're crazy
But I know they just don't understand
(Close your eyes and please don't let me go)
Don't, Don't, Don't, Don't let me go now
(Close your eyes don't let me let you go)
Don't, Don't, Don't

Take my hand tonight
Let's not think about tomorrow
Take my hand tonight
We could find some place to go
Cause our hearts are locked forever
And our love will never die
Take my hand tonight
One last time

Hey Hey
Hey Hey

The raindrops
The tears keep falling
I see your face and it keeps me going
If I get lost your light's going to guide me
And I know that you can take me home
You can take me home

Take my hand tonight
Let's not think about tomorrow
Take my hand tonight
We could find some place to go
Cause our hearts are locked forever
And our love will never die
Take my hand tonight
One last time

Take my hand tonight
Let's not think about tomorrow
Take my hand tonight
We could find some place to go
Cause our hearts are locked forever
And our love will never die (Love will never die)
Take my hand tonight
One last time

    General CommentThis is my favourite song on their new album...Simple Plan is like that stuffed animal in the back of your closet, LOVED them when you were younger and you'll never be able to "throw them out". This song is pretty straight forward, about a relationship that no one says will work, but he's saying to take his hand and they'll find somewhere together. They know that they'll be together forever. The verse that starts of with "the raindrops" is about how the other is the "light", and I think that the "take me home" part is about how the person can make him feel safe, loved, and bring him back to the place he feels most comfortable with. Dunno if that makes sense to you but it does to me (:

    General CommentPretty straight forward as marlee pointed out. It's all about a romance everyone said would not work out because of the problems that "everybody's got". He's telling her to forget about everything and everyone else, the past and the future, and focus on the here and now "tonight".

    One thing though is the "One last time" implies an impending separation that's coming up. Thoughts?

    General Commentmaybe the he's saying the take his hand 'one last time' because there is a problem in the relationship that they can't help like they have to be physically separated for whatever reasons (college, business, moving away, problems with other people etc) so they have only a limited time to be together. they think about separating and giving up on the relationship but then realize how much it means to them. they could get through or cope with whatever problems they're facing, so they keep trying. when he's saying to 'don't let me go' and 'don't let me let you go' he's saying 'don't give up on me', and 'don't let me give up on you', because they're meant to be together.

    'I see your face
    And it keeps me going
    (Hey, hey)
    If I get lost
    Your light's gonna guide me
    And I know that you can take me home
    You can take me home'

    there are times when he has doubts but remembers how much he cares for her, and it gets him to keep trying.

    General CommentThis song, in my opinion is the best song on the new record. I really love 'the city sleeps' verse. It's so beautifully romantic.

    General CommentSimple Plan, I've never really focused on their music yet whenever I listen to them they..are like just there for me. This song I first loved for the first four lines of the verse (Sometimes I feel like everybody's got a problem Sometimes I feel like nobody wants to solve them). Since like I know people with their own situations no matter who/what they are by looks and it's just upsetting how while some get helped the rest are on their own..

    I guess (esp from the verse w/ 'the city sleeps') "Take My Hand" is basically to do with saving or ending a relationship after everyone else's doubts for that love and to take his hand for things to harden up so the pain wouldn't hurt so much- but personally for me in a way is not giving up hope with bonds and in the end those people would be there for you even in your heart. At least a few times I've lost everything with friends from being unfaithful or 'for the better'.

    ^ that's my over-thought two cents, so yah..

    General CommentDamn catchy song, but sounds quite generic. I swear, I've heard chords like these way too many times.
