Talking away
I don't know what I'm to say
I'll say it anyway
Today's another day to find you
Shine away
I'm coming for your love okay

Take on me (take on me)
Take me on (take on me)
I'll be gone in a day or two

So needless to say at odds and ends
But I'll be stumbling away
Slowly learning that life is okay
Say after me
It's so much better to be safe than sorry

Take on me (take on me)
Take me on (take on me)
I'll be gone in a day or two

Oh, things that you say
Yeah, is it life or just a play
My worries away
You're all the things I've got to remember
You shine away
I'll be coming for you anyway

Take on me (take on me)
Take me on (take on me)
I'll be gone in a day or two

Take on me (take on me)
Take me on (take on me)
I'll be gone in a day or two

Take on me
Take on me

    The meaning of the song? Tragically it's been pretty much destroyed by A1's heinous alteration to the lyrics. Whether by error or intent I don't know: either is inexcusable, the latter unforgivable - they have completely missed the point of one of the best songs ever written. The correct lyric (as written by a-ha) is, of course, "It's no better to be safe than sorry", not "It's so much better to be safe than sorry".
    Carpe diem (seize the day).
