I'll Take You

lyrics

On a sunday in May
when I first saw your face
I thought you were somehow familiar
You told me that day
that I wasn't safe
I said don't let your memories hold you

You told me you'd never be close
to anyone like me
and you are all I see

Now I'm moving away
somewhere far from L.A.
and you're staying behind to keep climbing
I made up my mind
that I wouldn't this time
go for someone who's still out there wandering

Now you're closer to me
than anyone has been
and you are all I see

Now I'm packing my bags
but I don't want to go
I'm leaving the place that we used to call home
but I'll take you wherever I go..

How I do wish
that I had you to kiss
in the dark of this cold Sunday morning
We'll work out our lives
we'll wait for our time
but for now I'll be with you in writing

Now you're closer to me
than anyone has been
and you are all I see

Now I'm packing my bags
but I don't want to go
If I wait here too long
then I won't ever know

I'm leaving the place that we used to call home
but I'll take you wherever I go...
