Song Lyric Sunday- Take On Me

I just found this prompt at “This Little Thing Called Life, One Word at a Time”

and I thought it sounded fun! The theme today was “take/taking”.  I immediately thought of this song. It was released when I was 15 and MTV was still cool. This was one of the best videos of all time in my opinion. It’s a simple love song, with a great story to the video. I loved that it had a happy ending, and I always wanted to be that girl.

I did a little reading about it for fun, and found out that the lead singer, Morten Harket, spanned more than two and a half octaves in this song! That’s some falsetto!

We’re talking away
I don’t know what
I’m to say I’ll say it anyway
Today’s another day to find you
Shying away
I’ll be 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
I’m odds and ends
I’ll be stumbling away
Slowly learning that life is OK
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
Is it live or
Just to play my worries away
You’re all the things I’ve got to remember
You’re shying 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

(Take on me, take on me)
(Take me on, take on me)
I’ll be gone (take on me)
In a day
