"Take Me Somewhere Nice" as written by and Adam R. Young....
Take me somewhere nice.
To some tired island,
In your heart,
Called Paradise.

Though we wander home
We both feel alone
Like escapees
With no where to go.

I can think of
A thousand ways.
To get good and lost
Beyond these hopeless day

Where we'll rendezvous
Out of the blue
And take a deep breath
Just we two

And we'll be so far gone
The oars will row on
And we will happily wave
So long

If we hook a dream
And it tows it back down
This open stream
We'll say hello
Oh, Oh
Take us wherever you go.

Take me somewhere deep.
'Cause I'm quite exhausted
And I need to sleep
Or climb the great divide
Or wake up beside myself
Just to know I'm alive.

?
Pays me a visit
And drags my islands down.
They sting like growing pains
Iced in the veins of a guy
Who's not ready to die

If I may be so bold
I'll weather the cold.
'Cause I'm not afraid to grow old

If we hook a dream
And it tows it back down
This open stream
We'll say hello
Oh, Oh
Take us wherever you go

    General CommentI go Sky Sailing all the time. It's quite a lovely activity, takes me away from reality.

    General Comment"They sting like growing pains, iced in the veins of a guy

    I just love that part! The thing that really gets me about Sky Sailing/Owl City is that the lyrics are just so poetic in the most refreshing way possible.

    My Interpretation"Die" in Adam Young's songs (i.e. this and Beautiful Mystery) just means getting your heart broken.
    So, I think the meaning is just a guy who isn't ready to have his heart broken & he's laying his cards on the table for this girls. Offering her a proposition, saying how they'd be good together etc
