"Follow Me" as written by Matthew Shafer and Michael Bradford....
You don't know how you met me
You don't know why,
You can't turn around
And say goodbye,

All you know is when I'm with you
I make you free
And swim through your veins
Like a fish in the sea,

I'm singin'
Follow me
Everything is all right,
I'll be the one to tuck you in at night,
And if you want to leave I can guarantee
You won't find nobody else like me,

I'm not worried
'bout the ring you wear
'cause as long as no one knows
Then nobody can care,

You're feelin' guilty
And I'm well aware
But you don't look ashamed
And baby I'm not scared,

I'm singin'
Follow me
Everything is all right,
I'll be the one to tuck you in at night,
And if you want to leave I can guarantee
You won't find nobody else like me,

Won't give you money
I can't give you the sky
Your better off if you don't ask why,

I'm not the reason that you
Go astray
We'll be alright
If you don't ask me to stay,

Follow me
Everything is all right,
I'll be the one to tuck you in at night,
And if you want to leave I can guarantee
You won't find nobody else like me,

You don't know how you met me
You don't know why
You can't turn around and
Say goodbye,

All you know is when I'm with you
I make you free
And swim through your veins
Like a fish in the sea,

I'm singin'
Follow me
Everything is all right,
I'll be the one to tuck you in at night,
And if you want to leave I can guarantee
You won't find nobody else like me,

I'm singin'
Follow me
Everything is all right,
I'll be the one to tuck you in at night,
And if you want to leave I can guarantee
You won't find nobody else like me,

I'm singin'
Follow me
Everything is all right,
I'll be the one to tuck you in at night,
And if you want to leave I can guarantee
You won't find nobody else like me

    General Commenti think what the commenting slag is trying to say is: this is a dark dark song, cast in the devil's own forge and infused with death and evil. the winsome singer of this song might seem happy. he might tell you that "everything is alright", and that he'll be "the one to tuck you in at night". may i say - hah! for behind this jaunty rhyme is a subtle yet oh-so-sinister subtext.

    mr. kracker is in fact an agent of dark forces we cannot hope to comprehend, hence the opening line, "you don't know how you met me". but need you know this at all? his name says it all; he would like nothing better than to krack you in his kavernous klaws. "i'm not worried 'bout the ring you wear", he pleads, "cause as long as no one knows then nobody can care". oh poor fool! as you can see, your rapid descent into the fiery pits of hell will be a lonely journey. "you're better off if you don't ask why ", he advises, further masking the full horror of his diabolical plans.

    beware this man. he will woo you with his flirtatious devil-music, and will scream "follow me" until he has led you to the abyss sir slag so succinctly prophecised. tread with care.

    My InterpretationTo me it's clearly a cheating song. Probably because I can really relate to it on that level. I've had people in my life I shouldn't have been with but they are incredibly hard to give up and you just don't know what it is about them that they have such a strong hold over you. They say all the right things and make it really hard not to go there with them.

    General Commentthis song is most def. about heroin, its one of those songs u have to catch on to what hes sayin. its the heroin tellin the story how it has control over him... you dont know how you met me u dont know why(u dont remember why you started and why) you cant turn around and say goodbye(you cant quit, its hard) all you know is when im with you i make u free(you get your fix) and swim thru ur viens like a fish in the sea(its in ur system, and ur feelin good) you wont find nobody else like me(nothing is more important than gettin ur fix) imnot worried bout the ring wear (not even his wife can help him... even though thats the affair sounding part) cause as long as no one knows than nobody can care(if noone knows hes doing it than noone can be worried bout him) ur feeling guilty and im well aware(its tellin him it knows he wishes he never started) but u dont look ashamed and baby im not scared(he dont care tho cuz he wants his fix) just listen to the song closely

    General CommentIt might be just me, but it could be dad and daughter. like it doesn't matter if you wear a ring, your still my baby girl, and like if she wants to leave, hes saying like go ahead, but no guy is gonna be as good as your old man. i know it can be interpereted as an affair, or drugs, but this is just my opinion

    General CommentHow in the world can you NOT see this song as being about Heroine?
    Ill break it down:

    "You don't know how you met me
    You don't know why, you can't turn around and say good-bye
    All you know is when i'm with you I make you free
    And swim through your veins like a fish in the sea
    I'm singing...."

    Okay in this verse he is talking about how he's not sure how he became addicted to the drug, meaning it could have been an accidental use, or a one time thing that lead to an addiction. Heroine is one of the most addicting drugs known to man, so therefore it is incredibly hard to quit. It relaxes the system and creates a sense of euphoria, which is what he means by i make you free, and swimming through your veins? Its injected directly into the blood stream.

    Follow me
    Everything is alright
    I'll be the one to tuck you in at night
    And if you want to leave
    I can guarantee
    You won't find nobody else like me

    He saying that as long as you stay addicted, you wont realize that you have a problem, you will continue using until it kills you. It is one of the strongest drugs around, therefore it would be hard to find something that could create the same emotions and feelings that heroine can.

    I'm not worried 'bout the ring you wear
    Cause as long as no one knows
    Then nobody can care
    You're fellin' guilty
    And I'm well aware
    But you don't look ashamed
    And baby I'm not scared
    Im singin...

    he is saying that the drug doesnt have emotions so therefore it wont know or care if you are married single, or if it tears aparrt your life. he is saying that what you do in your spare time, I>E> Heroine, is totally your decision and that nobody should care what you do. It is saying that the addiction has become so strong that the person does not even care what happens to them or how the outside world sees


    Won't give you money
    I can't give you the sky
    You're better off if you don't ask why
    I'm not the reason that you go astray
    We'll be alright if you don't ask me to stay

    It will bakrupt you if you let it, it cant ever give back to you. Its saying that you are better if you dont try to question why you have become addicted to the drug as well. It saying that you cant blame the drug for your addiction, because after all, they are the one who picked up the substance to begin with. and iit is saying that eventally it will leave you alone when you cannot afford the addiction anymore.

    General CommentI have to agree with everyone. When I first hear it I think it is about a woman cheating, but then it does sound like she is doing drugs, because it says that "he" will be the one to put her to bed at night, and that he "Swims through her veins like a fish in the sea", so it could possibly be about both. Who knows? I guess Uncle Kracker does.
