Lewis, Glenn - Take Me Lyrics




It was in November
When while out one night with friends
That I saw her there
She was just standing there

Something in her distant stare
A faint look of despair
To her I was drawn
Asked her was anything wrong

I told her my name
Said how you do
'Bouts to say you take care
It was nice to meet you

Then she stopped me desperately
As if to say don't go, but then she said to me

"Anywhere, you wanna go
Just take me, take me"
"Anywhere, you wanna go
Just take me, take me"

Not knowing what to say
But I could see
She was going thru some things
And needed someone to be
There to listen, probably wishing
She was someone else

And in my heart felt bad
And I just knew I had
'Cause I'd want the same myself
So we got into it
And while she talked I thought to myself
How could it be

That she'd have no one, not even a friend to come
And she'd have to turn to me and say

"Anywhere, you wanna go
Just take me, take me"
"Anywhere, you wanna go
Just take me, take me"

Seeking the wrong kind of attention
Always in abusive situations
And don't know how she got it good
Was starting to sound like it could be
The reason for misery

Slowly I could see
She had problems nothing
I or anyone could say or do
Would help what she was going thru

Then suddenly, she stood up across from me
And as loud as she could be, screaming out
"Some one help me please"
Realizing she was gone wishing I'd mind my own saying

Take me an-nywhere but here
She's crazy, crazy
Take me an-nywhere but here
She's crazy, crazy
Take me an-nywhere but here
She's crazy, crazy
Take me an-nywhere but here
She's crazy, crazy
Take me an-nywhere but here
She's crazy, crazy

  7. WestWard Pomona Gyrl

  15. Jelisa Cain

    Glenn needs to have a concert ASAP!!!!

  16. Clinton Fischer

    Glenn, so far ahead of his time back in the 90''s. He was the man and yet the little kid and the understudy all at the same time in Toronto, just like me, but he was SERIOUS

  17. D.J. ENCORE !

    NOW THIS SONG SHOULD LITERALLY BE #1 IN EVERY MAN'S SONG LIST !
    WE ALL, DON'T KID YA'SELF !
    SAW A FINE FEMALE, WE WANTED TO GET TO KNOW HER, WITH THE END GOAL, GETTING THE DRAWS !
    THEN THROUGH OUT, NOTICE SOMETHING WAS STRANGE ABOUT HER. BUT DECIDING TO LOOK THE OTHER WAY.
    THEN COMES THE COLDEST, TRUE TO LIFE PART OF THE SONG......
    " THEN SUDDENLY, SHE STOOD UP ACROSS FROM ME, AND AS LOUD AS SHE CAN BE, SCREAMING OUT
    " SOMEONE HELP ME PLEASE !"
    REALIZING SHE WAS GONE,
    WISHIN' I MIND MY OWN ! SAYIN' !"
    MOST REALEST STATEMENT EVER !

    Jeanius Jay

    D.J. ENCORE ! ALL FACTS I have most definitely been there and the woman was indeed toxic.

  36. Ebony Williams

    yes this stayed on repeat

    thegdoat1

    Yes, it did!!!! 😂

  37. Sonya Haynes43

    The best song off his CD.

  38. Mabel Rose-Lindsey

    This song is the reason my CD was scratched, I believe lol The story always had my full attention

    Jeanius Jay

    Mabel Rose-Lindsey A perfectly told story a very toxic woman.

  39. thegdoat1

    When I was young, I would record myself on cassette singing various songs. Musiq Soulchild, Donell Jones, etc. I honestly don't remember which song got radio play from Glenn that made me buy his cd, but I know that "Take Me" would be on repeat in my cd player for hours. And I literally recorded myself multiple times in different tones to mimic the harmonizing in the chorus. Aahhhhhh, the memories. I don't care what anyone says, but they do NOT make music like this anymore. Even some of the old school artists that come back and go for another run, compromise and become modern. I miss this kind of music with raw talent, and less technological voice aids.

    Ciara Henry

    smile! 😃

    thegdoat1

    You're probably right. I don't think "Take Me" got radio play. However, "Never Too Late" got radio play. It could have been that one. I liked them both. Hell, probably both of them did it for me!!! 😀

    Clinton Fischer

    @thegdoat1 Definitely Dont You Forget It was the catalyst to radio play for this album. Having met Glenn in the Toronto R&B scene back in the day, I have a few funny stories to tell, but one is when he got up at an intimate gathering at a posh local hotel gig with our friend Carlos Morgan and he talked about "an album" he was working on, and his most favorite song he had just finished called "Dont You Forget it".

  40. Chasiraw

    I don't think he sold his soul to the devil, which may be the reason he's not as big as some of these other "artists." If that's the case he's all good and is right where he needs to be. Bigger is not always better.

    Clinton Fischer

    Your words are so true and accurate of Glenn. I met him back in the 90's on the Toronto R&B scene. He is truly a class act. Quite often, the greatest artists of all time are underrated and maybe that is a blessing, cause Glenn is in a space all by himself.

  41. MIA MINI

    eccentric..

  42. ncstateofmind

    Stevie wonder runs are crazy

    Melody Daniels

    Yesssss

  43. Nu Nu Outlaw

    I been on both sides of this song 😂😂😂😂 crazy

    Azula Collins

    Understand that

  44. stewart campbell

    GREAT....

  45. Samuel Hoskins

    Love this song, can't stop playing it.. The vibe and mood of this song is exactly how I feel right now.. I don't know why Glenn is not bigger than he is right now.

    Clinton Fischer

    The true great ones go unnoticed and are underrated. I met Glenn in the Toronto R&B scene back in the day. He is a class act guy and like all of us singers/hustlers, just being humble and tryna get by 😁

  46. Josiah Brady

    Most eldritch melody that I've ever heard... I've never heard anyone really dedicated to singing a song in a minor key like this bruh... Lol that was oddly fire.

  47. Misz Levi Israel

    We need you back and hope you turn bigger than justin bieber or Chris brown even though i love them too we need all those real singers back. what can we do to have all the early 2000s people back or at least the music back? the golden age back pleassee  :'-(

  48. Misz Levi Israel

    i officially am in love with this man. Love you glenn lewis! Is like you sing all the things im feeling so deeply connected to any females emotions. The lyrics doesnt even have to match just that deepness is all that matters. 

  49. sunshineanrain

    This is my ish!!! OMG... I got on EVERYBODY'S nerves with this one... on repeat. Just take me....

  50. MeekBeauty

    I love this song so much

  51. YCBLady

    I played this song on repeat constantly when this album first came out! One of my favorites forever!

    Producer1998

    I remember it came out in March 2000, I think. In my opinion, 2000 had the best music.

    Sonya Haynes43

    Love this album. My favorite song on the CD. Keep on repeat. Lol.

    Lady D

    Omg me too, brings back memories,

    Jeanius Jay

    The first description of a toxic women I had ever heard. Such a perfectly told story.

  52. Helen Turner

    I love this song

  53. TTSantiago821

    Stevie is that you??? The Influence is crazy and undeniable as he is paying tribute to Mr. Wonder in a great way.  Loves me some Glenn! 

    Clinton Fischer

    Yes, and MJ and Donny Hathaway were his biggest influences 😀

    Casey Walker

    Not a fan of this comment being over used...

    Azula Collins

    I said the same ish

  60. Nick Lamar

    I'm a young Buck. 26 years old but this song is super hott! These girls where I'm from don't listen to r&b like that! It's sad. I bump it in my car and they say I'm soft. Wth

    thegdoat1

    They just don't understand brother!!! They're probably the types that just want to see a dude shuck and jive all over the place with their shirt off, soaked in vegetable oil. They don't care about talent nowadays.

  61. Ghostzed0831 Butler

    My mom always passed this song in the car. Ive always loved this song. So musically spiritual...my face changes with the harmony. Can't help it. Just perfect...

  62. Nick Hammers

    Honestly, I think its about a prostitute.

  63. AllThingzPop TV!!!

    U can tell he is influenced by Stevie Wonder

  71. ONiKONOBI

    one of my favorites..

  72. creole_mamii

    He has a mixture of Stevie Wonder and Donny Hathaway's voice yet he is so beyond underrated it makes no damn sense Smfh!!!

  73. Valyonga

    What a mesmerising tune. Definitely for all the lovemakers and dreamers in the house. His music is so in its own space. Another masterpiece Glenn - well done. I think the name Glenn just works for me musically - I like Glenn Lewis, Glenn Jones and Glen Goldsmith :)
