"Cowboy Take Me Away" as written by Marcus Hummon and Martha Seidel....
I said, I wanna touch the earth
I wanna break it in my hands
I wanna grow something wild and unruly
I wanna sleep on the hard ground
In the comfort of your arms
On a pillow of blue bonnets
In a blanket made of stars
Oh, it sounds good to me

I said, cowboy take me away
Fly this girl as high as you can into the wild blue
Set me free, oh, I pray
Closer to heaven above and closer to you
Closer to you

I wanna walk and not run
I wanna skip and not fall
I wanna look at the horizon and not see a building standing tall
I wanna be the only one for miles and miles
Except for maybe you and your simple smile
Oh, it sounds good to me
Yes, it sounds so good to me

Cowboy take me away
Fly this girl as high as you can into the wild blue
Set me free, oh, I pray
Closer to heaven above and closer to you
Closer to you

I said, I wanna touch the earth
I wanna break it in my hands
I wanna grow something wild and unruly
Oh, it sounds so good to me

Cowboy take me away
Fly this girl as high as you can into the wild blue
Set me free, oh, I pray
Closer to heaven above and closer to you
Closer to you
Closer to you
Cowboy take me away
Closer to you

    TranslationFor me, true story, its about a girl and her boyfriend who used to do that stuff, and he died, and now she just wants to do it again, even the little stuff. Its why she says 'closer to heaven boy, and closer to you'. That's what it means to me because I'm the girl and my Michael's the cowboy. I used to call him cowboy, too. I heard that song on the night he died, right after our song, the dance by Garth brooks. I nearly killed myself to be with him I was so sad, but he'd told me to live for him, so I knew I couldn't.

    General CommentI was cuddling with my guy friend on my bed (purely non-sexual, I assure you) and this song popped into my head. I was in his arms, on a blanket made of stars (my comforter has moons and stars on it). Probably a coincidence, but still.

    General CommentI have always wanted a tall handsome cowboy. This song just makes me want it even more. Haven't found him yet but hopefully before too long I will.

    General CommentThis song was written by Dixie Chick Martie Maguire, who at the time was Martie Seidel, along with a songwriter named Marcus Hummon. According to interviews I have seen, and backed up by the web, Martie wrote the song for her sister inthe band, Emily Robison, who was getting married. The song's title and inspiration some from the 1970's commercial and then saying, "Calgon Take Me Away."

    General CommentSo relaxing... reminds me of just being in a field with the one I love (if he was a cowboy - fine by me!) and not having a care in the world. Such a beautiful song.

    General Commenti love this song because it's so simplistic and all she wants is to just be with this guy and not have a care in the world and she doesnt want any of the things in life besides just being in a place and being with her love.
    that's what i want. a night just to go laydown and watch the stars and just be together.
