Legend, John - Take Me Away Lyrics

Oh, la, la, la, la, la
Yeah, yeah

We dance and sing somewhere in between heaven and hell
Gabrielle, that was her name
Everyone was smiling, even through their tears, under a spell

But in Gabby's eyes, nothing
I asked do you not like the music?
She says it's alright
But she dances to her own sad tune, she said

Take me away from here
Take me somewhere where love is like breathing
I don't care where we go, long as I'm there with you, baby
Long as I'm there with you

I could tell, she's been through pain I could only dream
Nightmares to live where you live
Tears well in her eyes, but she wouldn't let them fall

I'd give the world to know where her smile is
I asked will you dance with me now
Let me try to figure out
The fastest route out of town and she says

Take me away from here
Take me somewhere, where love is like breathing
I don't care where we go, long as I'm there with you baby

Oh, oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, I got a full tank of gas, girl
Anywhere you wanna go, girl
All you have to do is ask girl, ohh she said

Take me away from here
Take me somewhere, where love is like breathing
I don't care where we go, long as I'm there with you baby

Come on and take me away from here
Take me somewhere, where love is like breathing
I don't care where we go long as I'm there with you

  36. Timothy Gustave

    The woman I love no longer loves me, it's been like this for quite some time. She loved this song. All we have left in the past are memories. My, what memories, what simple details I crave. We can weep or we can sing through life. This is to hoping that you're dancing to your own sad tune somewhere that makes you happy, beautiful. May the Elysian Fields of love invite all the hopeless romantics in to start anew

  72. Bobbihana

    this one started the journey for me....

  73. Tedrick Gray

    you cant compare john legend to neyo thats like comparing a sports car to a bicycle
    hands down john legend is outrageously talented his ear on the piano is the shit

  74. sukiaki96

    its hard to compare two compleltly differnt artists who have differnt styles, in my opinion both versions are amazing

  75. carsonkent

    there are pop singers - and then there are musicians. John Legend is the latter...a refreshing change from all the industry created 'singers'. thank you john for bringing motown to the new millennium.

  76. marllon macson

    essa musica foi escrita pelo Ne-Yo

    This song was written by Ne-Yo

  77. yayarea141


    if he was completely mainstream he most likely wouldn't be making songs like this.

  78. Taylor Johnson

    @ShinyMoonlight1 oh well. I don't think he means any disrespect. I wouldn't let it bug you, especially when it's such a good song

  79. Taylor Johnson

    this song took a couple times to grow on me, but now I'm convinced it's one of the best on evolver

  80. GeeGee

    Neyo and John have to different styles. They can't be compared to each other. I think this may be the 100th time ive listened to this song...its addicting.... 0_o

  81. Lindsey White
