Dionne Warwick - Take The Short Way Home Lyrics




Take the short way home

You've been makin' up your mind
And I can save you from the trouble that your heart is goin' through
And I can tell you what your future's gonna be
Maybe we can open up your eyes
Baby, you can't leave me now

There is lightening in the city
Stranger than you ever saw
Get back to your special lover
And I won't ever turn on you
Or tell you you should tell me where you go

Take the short way home
Baby, take care of your health
In this world of evil
I can't keep you to myself

Take the short way home
You'll be safe here by my side
In this world of evil
I can't keep you satisfied

And you can make it easy on yourself
Some other love will call my name when you're away and I'll be gone
And there's no other who could love you more
I keep talkin' to myself when I'm alone
I don't wanna be alone

Crazy people in the shadows
Love is only what you find
Come back here and you'll discover
There ain't nothin' you've been searchin' for
I could not give you now if you are gone

Take the short way home (Home)
Baby, take care of your health
In this world of evil
I can't keep you to myself

Take the short way home
You'll be safe here by my side
In this world of evil
I can't keep you satisfied

Crazy people in the shadows
Love is only what you find
Come back here and you'll discover
There ain't nothin' you've been searchin' for
I could not give you now if you are gone

Take the short way home (Take the short way home)
Baby, take care of your health (Take care of your health)
In this world of evil
I can't keep you to myself (Hey, hey)

Take the short way home (The short way home)
You'll be safe here by my side (Be safe here by my side)
In this world of evil (Yeah) I can't keep you satisfied (Can't keep you satisfied)

Take the short way home (Take the short way home)
Baby, take care of your health (Take care of your health)
In this world of evil (Oh)
I can't keep you to myself

Take the short way home
You'll be safe here by my side (Right by my side)
In this world of evil
I can't keep you satisfied (Yeah, yeah)

Take the short way home (Home)
Baby, take care of your health (Oh, yeah)
In this world of evil
I can't keep you to myself

Take the short way home

  1. DYKERITZ: Music Page

    DA JAM!!!!!!

  2. Steve Washington

    forgot how hot this tune is ... great production all around ... awesome vocals by all involved

  3. Jeff Peterson

    This is when music was at its best. Blam!

  4. Andrew So

    Reminds of PROMISES by Barbra Streisand

    Terry Jacovides

    Also written by the Bee Gees

  5. Harry Giovanoni

    One we all missed somehow.

  6. Jeff Peterson

    it's like sailing on a cloud overlooking everything else...never a worry or care in this world ever...rock on!

  7. gary gracious

    The brilliance of the BeeGees

  8. Guillermo Briones Luna

    And You Can Make It Easy On Yoursel as an old Dionne´s song said

  9. Neo Essence

    Bee Gees Always in my heart.

  10. boolat laRina

    The bee gees are great, yes I agree but let us not underestimate dionne. Give this song to someone else the result would be less than perfect

    allymayful

    But remember they specifically wrote for the artists they were working with. Its obvious when you listen to Barry's demos, that he makes for the artists.

    David Stevens

    uhh Barbra

  11. Guillermo Briones Luna

    It's good to make justice to a real genious called Alby Galuten, he made most of the arrangements for this album "Heartbreaker"

  12. Shakil Ahmad

    What a sound & voices of Bee Gees. Bee Gees are born once in entire planet life..That's all

  13. MOTOグッチ

    エアチェックし忘れたから買いましたよ当時、EP版を( ・ㅂ・)و ̑̑ グッ !

    Sohale Hafeez

    Mr Moto what does that mean in English?

  14. marcella fermi

    Amazing. Great.

  15. Dé Medeiros

    great song

  16. marcella fermi

    fantastico ! Amazing

  17. Dorianlove Lovedorian

    i knew heartbreaker made the charts and all the love in the world but i had no idea this was even on the charts?

    Marty Siegel

    It just missed the Top 40. Peaked at number 41.

    Peelsock

    Despite its low charting on the Hot 100,. this song actually managed to get as high as #17 on the Radio & Records chart.

  18. Daniel Burns

    this song only went to #41 on the pop charts in 1983!!!

    Clay Carlos

    That fact has always baffled me. When this song was released, I thought it would be huge. Actually, I thought it would do just as well as, if not better than, Heartbreaker. I still love it.

  19. Colin Sanders

    entered Billboard Feb 26, 1983 ..reached #41

  20. Sultan Graf

    Only few have the magic touch like those 3 great bros ......long live barry

  21. Sultan Graf

    What a very beautiful melody and lyrics beautifully arranged and produced by the gibb. ....wooooow

  22. Thomas Rinallo JR

    bee gees great harmony, make the song better

    Music 328

    +Thomas Rinallo JR They also did great job backing vocals for Heartbreaker too!

  23. Laura Limon

    The Bee Gees touch was always golden, great sound.

  24. rooy اpop

    The case of a musical .......

  25. Valérie MARC

    Made by The Bee Gees ! Great as always !

    jesus Rodriguez

    Valérie MARC they are not the bee gees. Is Barry Gibb alone singging several tracks

    Sohale Hafeez

    @jesus Rodriguez she means it was written by them.

  26. Dave Wollenberg

    Should've made top 40 pop in Billboard. It was THAT great!

    Jim Finsterle

    it did!

  27. Dropjaw Bertone

    Another great song written by the Bee Gees. Dionne sang it brilliantly!

  28. Jim Cholley

    Good one! I really, really love "Heartbreaker," however. Dionne the legend.. :-)

    I did not even realize this was a charting single until recently.

  29. rin3guy

    #41 Billboard, #32 Cash Box in early 1983.

    Dave Micklon

    and top 30 R & R. This is good, but I've always preferred All the Love to this.

    BaseballMusic123

    Hit #5 on the Billboard AC charts as well
