"Take Me" as written by and Edwin Cole Mc Cain....
I pull my boots off, throw my weapons on the floor
Cry my eyes out, in my private little war
Well it seems I've been a soldier
Heaven knows I've been no saint
In my camouflage and armor, cold heart and grease paint
To you this has no meaning the Armistice laid down
The armies are all quiet and the guns don't make a sound

'Cause you melted the steel walls, tore down the barbed wire
Filled in the trenches, demanded a cease fire
And now you're leaving, there's nothing I can do
I want you to know you're gonna take me with you

Well now three on a match is suicide in the foxhole of my mind
And way off in the distance the air raid sirens whine
And they sing your song of rescue to my tattered worn out shell
You drag me to your safety from this my front line hell

'Cause you melted the steel walls, tore down the barbed wire
Filled in the trenches, demanded a cease fire
And now you're leaving, there's nothing I can do
I want you to know you're gonna take me with you

The blood that was spilled in the heartache before
Left road maps of scars that I never could ignore

'Cause you melted the steel walls, tore down the barbed wire
Filled in the trenches, demanded a cease fire
And now you're leaving, there's nothing I can do
I want you to know you're gonna take me with you

    General CommentI think this song is about how when you meet the right person all your problems seem to disappear.

    General CommentI think this song is about how he took down all his defenses for this person, and then when she leaves him, he's just like "hey... I did all this for you, this won't be for nothing. I'm coming with you." He let down all his defenses to love her, and when she leaves he's not just going to sit there and take it. A touch of stalkerish?
    I like how the music is fairly upbeat, even though he's talking about heartache and someone leaving him. A great song, I love the lover-soldier comparison.
