"Take Away" as written by Timothy Mosley, Craig Brockman and Missy Elliott....
[Missy]
You're so incredible
Ever since the day we became, we became.. so personal
Everyday that I spend with you it gets.. unforgettable
Anything that I did with you, I don't.. regret at all
(I love everything about you)

Take away, your gold and platinum chains
(and I'm gonna love you baby)
'Cause I'm gon' love, love you anyway
(I ain't in it for the cheddar baby)
I'm not in it for, for the love of cash
(oh no no, you might go broke, but I'm)
'Cause if you go broke, I gotta make it last
(not goin nowhere, nowhere, nowhere..)

[Ginuwine]
Listen, let's make, it national
I want the whole world to know
I'm with you, and I'm.. in love
Ain't no girl in this world
can fill your shoes, none not at all
The things you do for me is so.. unbelievable
And you can take away all the platinum chains

[Missy] + (Ginuwine)
Take away, your gold and platinum chains
'Cause I'm gon love, love you anyway
(I'ma love you anyway, yes I am)
I'm not in it for, for the love of cash
(I'm only in it for the love of you)
'Cause if you go broke I gotta make it last
(I gotta make it last babyyy)

I just want to be the perfect match
You don't even have to ask..
I just want to be the perfect match
We become so attached..
(we become so attached baby that's all I ask)
I just want to be the perfect match
You don't even have to ask..
I just want to be the perfect match
We become so attached..
(be the perfect match baby, so attached, yeahyeaheyeahhh)

[Computer voice]
Now can you hold me, now can you feel me
Now can you get near me..
For once in your lifetime, for once in your lifetime
Now can you hold me, now can you feel me
Now can you get near me..
For once in your lifetime, for once in your lifetime

[Missy]
Take away, your gold and platinum chains
'Cause I'm gon' love, love you anyway
I'm not in it for, for the love of cash
'Cause if you go broke, I gotta make it last

    General Commentit is just all for Aaliyah. Some parts of the song I didnt get but in most of the parts I can tell that they were making it for her.

    General Commentit's basically a song about unconditional love, that simple.

    To clear up any confusion, the lyrics aren't about Aaliyah, the video is dedicated to her. Though, I understand how some people could say that thes ong can relate to her.

    "You're so incredible
    Ever since the day we became, we became.. so personal
    Everyday that I spend with you it gets.. unforgettable
    Anything that I did with you, I don't.. regret at all
    (I love everything about you)

    Take away, your gold and platinum chains
    (and I'm gonna love you baby)
    Cause I'm gon' love, love you anyway
    (I ain't in it for the cheddar baby)"

    that part could very easily make people think that missy was expressing how great aaliyah was to her and how she would still be great without "platinum chains"/money & fame
