"Take Me Away" as written by and Christopher Robert/baskette Babbitt....
The black that bleeds the dreams she leaves
Are open veins that stain her sleeves
And now the lonely street’s her only friend tonight

But the lights are cold, the lies are old
And all she wants is to go home
She bites her lip and shuts her eyes
And sings herself a lullaby

Take me away
Hold on tight and kiss the night, there’s nothing left to say
Take me away
Open wide and whisper, I can almost hear her say

She loves the rush, she loves the thrill
She loves the hunt, she loves the kill
Deep inside she knows it’s her who dies each time

But the lights are cold, the lies are old
And all she wants is to go home
She bites her lip and shuts her eyes
And sings herself a lullaby

Take me away
Hold on tight and kiss the night, there’s nothing left to say
Take me away
Open wide and whisper, I can almost hear her say

Just take me home
Take me home

Wipe back the black to free the blue
Now honey it’s just me and you
And I’ll kill ‘em all if you ask me to
But all she says is…

Take me away
Hold on tight and kiss the night, there’s nothing left to say
Take me away
Open wide and whisper, I can almost hear her say

Just take me home
Take me home

    My InterpretationI love this song as for it's meaning, hmm. . . Prostitute? weird but the mentioning of "the streets her only friend" and their 'lies are old' they say they love her but don't really?

    either that or a homeless woman addicted to drugs. 'She loves the rush, she loves the thrill" and the singer is a guy trying to help her out but all she wants is her drugs or to die "All she says is take me away" End life...
