"Take Me Along" as written by Brandi Glen Cyrus, John M. Shanks and Miley Cyrus....
The city of angels is lonely tonight
Keep myself alight by candlelight
So she can love you like I do
Look me in the eyes and say it's true
I ask myself is this love at all
When I need you most, you let me fall
I'm always here at the side of your stage
Let you live your life
Pretend I'm okay (don't you know)
I'll be okay
I'll hold you close we'll stay forever

I, I don't understand why you're leaving me
I, I don't understand, how without you I can breathe
Please don't, don't leave me here
Take my hand and breathe in deep
I don't understand why you can't take me with you

You can pretend I don't exist,
But you will see my face every time you kiss
I hope you heard any walls fall down,
When you hear the sound that I'm okay (don't you know)
I'll be okay
You can't hold me down, I will stay forever

I, I don't understand why you're leaving me
I, I don't understand how without you I can breathe
Please don't, don't leave me here
Take my hand and breathe in deep
I don't understand why you can't take me with you

I watched you leave
I'm awake tonight
And I'm letting go for the last time
And through the tears I say goodbye
So breathe in, breathe in, breathe in, breathe out.

I, I don't understand, why you're leaving me
I, I don't understand how without you I can't breathe
Please don't, don't leave me here
Take my hand and breathe in deep
I don't understand why you can't take me with you
Don't leave me here
Please don't leave me here
I, I don't understand,
How without you I can breathe
Please don't, don't leave me here
Take my hand and breathe in deep
I don't understand why how can't take me with you

    Song Meaning"Say she can't love you like I do
    Look me in the eyes and say it's true" Obviously that means the guy she used to be with has now moved on, but she knows that she loved him and still loves him better than anyone can.

    She starts to wonder if he ever loved her, like she loved him. So she always tries to plead him to come back, or to open his eyes that she is the one but it doesn't work.

    she is slowly starting to get over him, and she wants him to know that he will never find anyone, who loved him as much as she did.

    So one day, she finally lets him go, and stops trying to be with someone who doesn't want her back. And she hopes it hurts him, when she finds someone new and he realizes that she was the one for him all along.

    General CommentTo me, the song is about this girl who loves a guy who is leavin her. she loves him & doesnt want him to leave her, so she wants him to take her with him bcuz if he doesnt then its over between them. but in the end, he does leave & she's still sad & hurt, but acts as if she's ok. so she wants him to be hurt & miss her when he's with other girls & when he hears that she's okay. but she still loves him, & still doesnt understand why he didnt take her along.

    General CommentThis is about a girl who has been with a boy for awhile, and they are taking a break of some sort. He has a new girl he is talking to, and she knows that she loves him more than that girl ever will. She also knows he will miss her a ton, and she doesn't understand why it's over. She thinks when he is with the girl, he will think of her. She is pleading him to come back, but he won't.

    General CommentWell obviously this song is about a guy leaving a girl and the girl not understanding what went wrong or how she's going to live without him. It really shows the girl's vulnerability and how dependent she was on him.

    My InterpretationThis song hits very close to home right now. I'm in love with a man, and he treats me like he loves me, but he's already in a relationship with a woman. He's never expressly told me that he thinks of me that way or that he even likes men, but there are times when you just know. I'm always here for him just as he is me. I never push my own wants on him, and we literally sit at the side of the stage whenever one another is performing (we met after being cast in the same musical.) I let him live his life, but I am aching for him. But I don't want to frighten him and lose him. We both want the same things out of life. I just don't understand why we can't go on with our lives together, why we can't just look at each other and say "take me with you."
