Waterboys, The – Take Me There I Will Follow You Lyrics

Take me there, I will follow you
Take me there, I will follow you
Take me there, I will follow you

She watched the boulevard flowing by
With a hungry fox’s eyes
Mesmerized by all the merchandise
Displayed and advertised
Prizes she coulda had
Had her compromises been otherwise
What a shiny world they symbolized
Disorganized and demoralized
She said how did I get here
To the bed which said nothing
Instead a voice replied inside her head
You’ve been in this town too long
Time to get gone

Take me there, I will follow you
Take me there, I will follow you
Take me there, I will follow you

She painted her lips
Started thinking about ships
Tied an old boyfriend’s belt
Round her hips
Bum trip
Put on some boots
She saved from the rain
Undid the chain on the door
Counted two, three, four
Tumbled out the apartment
Face streaked with tears
Heart fizzing with fear
Felt the breeze
Blowin’ round her naked ears
That were pierced and bare
Since she cropped her hair
Didn’t care
Boarded a bus
Greyhound bound for unknown parts
And as the driver cussed and fussed
And spat in the dust
She did what she must
And told her heart of hearts
You’ve been in this town too long
Time to get gone

Take me there, I will follow you
Take me there, I will follow you
Take me there, I will follow you

She lay back in a heap
Tried to weep, fell asleep
And in her dreams
Moonbeams zipped through
Tattered flags
And witches rags of clouds
And killers zigzagged
Through the slithering crowds
At the national mall
One with it all
And a voice spoke loud
Just like before
And said it once more
You’ve been in this town too long
Time to get gone

Take me there, I will follow you
Take me there, I will follow you
Take me there, I will follow you

Take me there, I will follow you
Take me there, I will follow you
Take me there, I will follow you
