"Take On Me" as written by Magne (mags) Furuholmen, Pal Waaktaar and Morten Harket....
We're talking away
I don't know what's left to say
I'm sayin' it anyway
Today's another day to find you
Shying away
I'll be coming for your love o.k.?

Take on me, take me on
I'll be gone
In a day or two

So needless to say
I'm odds and ends again
But it's me stumbling away
Slowly learning that life is o.k.
Say it after me
It's no better to be safe than sorry

Take on me,
Take me on
I'll be gone
In a day or two

Things that you say
Yeah is it life or just to play my
Worries away
You're all the things I've got to remember
Shying away
I'll be coming for you anyway

Take on me,
Take me on
I'll be gone
in a day or two

Take on me,
Take me on
I'll be gone
in a day

    General CommentHave any of you actually seen RBF in a non-concert type setting? Warped tour is such crap now a days. Nothing beats the good ol' sketchy venue hidden in the middle of the city. I saw these guys with Less Than Jake and Catch 22 in what used to be Lupos:Heart Break Hotel. Best damned ska show I've ever seen.
