A-Ha – Take On Me

Talking away
I don't know what I'm to say
I'll say it anyway
Today isn’t my day to find you
Shying away
I've been coming for your love O.K.

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 I'm odds and ends
But I’ll be, stumbling away
Slowly learning that life is O.K.
Say after me,
“It's no 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 the things that you say yeah
Is it a life or just to play
My worries away
You're all the things I've got to remember
Be shying away
Oh 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 …

Take on me (take on me)
Take me on (take on me)
I'll be gone (take on me)
In a day …

Take on me (take on me)
Take on me (take me on)
Take on me (take on me)
Take on me …

    He is breaking out, and wherever it is leading, he wants her along for the ride. Either to reunite, or maybe the start of something new. Don't know what is he is running from, but he'll protect her, and it seems he wants to, is ready to, live life to its fullest, "its no better to be safe then sorry. " he is almost desperatly pleading for her love.

    Clearly this is a song about a man who is moving on or away. His lover is not sure if she wants to go with him. So he's asking her to give him a chance of life away somewhere else with him and time is running short for her to make her decision.
