"Take Me Back" as written by Andy Bell and Vince Clarke....
The way to your heart
The way to your heart

There are voices like water
Inside your heart
Echo

Take me back to the place where I once belonged
This could be any place
A place where you and I could sing this song
Take me back where I hear waterfalls flowing

Let me dive into the lake where winter hides the snow
Then comes the summertime
Fields of scarlet poppies grow
Take me back where I see butterflies to-ing, fro-ing

And the river flows
I am never gonna take it back again
And the river flows
I am never gonna get it back again

We don't know anything
Trapped in a world full of strangers
Please don't tell me anything
I'd rather fall into you

Let me sleep a little while underneath the tree
And dream of dragonflies
Where the weary willow weeps for me
Take me back where I see dandelions blowing

And the river flows
I am never gonna take it back again

And the river flows
I am never gonna get it back again
And the river flows
I am never gonna take it back again

And the river flows
I am never gonna get it back again
And the river flows
I am never gonna take it back again

We don't know anything
Trapped in a world full of strangers
Please don't tell me anything
I'd rather fall into you

    General CommentThis song is really wonderful in every senses. Andy sings about an ethereal place where we can be in contact with our own innocence again. And now it seems your life is simply starting again while you're rediscovering how pleasurable life can be! You are so fascinated that you won't let yourself go back to the other 'world' where you used to live before. From now on your 'river' will flow only to this wonderful place, which is simply a place where is let to an adult be a child again for seeing life with renewing eyes...
