"Take Me With You" as written by and Mick Moody/david Coverdale /....
In and out on this same path that I followed for years
Can't I look around and ask how could we still end up here
I can't just hold tight
Wait for them to cut us to ribbons
If the sharpest thing where you come is a blade of grass

[Chorus]
Oh take me with you
I don't need shoes to follow
Bare feet running with you
Somewhere the rainbow ends my dear

These injuries
Don't you think we need a new referee
I can't let the ball drop
Boy I need some interference to shut them up

[Chorus]

Oh take me with you
Chase rabbits into their burrow
Bare feet running with you
Today even the rain can cut me up

Tears turn to steal and the wound never heals
In the darkness of November
Well the witch is in the tower
And the snake's in the bower
And the hunt goes on forever
Now the stake is there to burn
My fathers robe is torn between cross and Mother
With the blood on your hands come on
What you doin'?
I am fed up with this questioning.

[Chorus]

Oh take me with you
Chase rabbits into their burrow
Bare feet running with you today today

Oh take me with you
I don't need shoes to follow
Bare feet running with you
Today even the rain
Even the rain
Even the rain
Can cut me up

Take me with you

Take me with you

    General CommentI've never heard another song as full of profound yearning as this one. It's complex, like most of Amos's songs. But it seems to me that on a basic level, it's about longing to follow and call back a loved one lost to death--possibly suicide. It works on a lot of metaphorical levels as well, even simply grieving for a long-lost relationship. Missing the innocent happiness of childhood somehow comes into this song too. The repeated refrain of endlessly chasing something terribly important that one can never catch (rather like in the old song "Elusive Butterfly") is very dreamlike and poignant. Love this song.
