TAKE ME HOME

Music by Mats Byström & Anders Holst.

Lyrics by Gordon Chambers & Anders Holst

I haven’t felt like this before

For a very long, long time

But I know, it’s that time of the year again

When my thoughts are homeward bound

 

Though you’ve told me over and over

Let’s take our love day by day

But this time around, when the city shuts down

I long for that coastline of mine

 

I feel like stepping out

Into a different light

A brand new sky

For you and I

 

I dream out loud

And we’re Northern bound

Can I take you to my holy ground?

 

So wait for me, wait down town

I wanna take you home tonight

But darling don’t be late, the plane won’t wait

Gotta catch that Northern Light

 

Let me take the wheel, I promise joy you’ll feel

When I take you home tonight

You know the time is right

For a home-cooked bite

With faces shining bright

Let me take you home tonight

 

On the porch we drink all day long

Take some time, work on our songs

Through the night we talk to the moon

No where to go anytime real soon

 

Deal with things to overcome

(Cause) neither of us wants to be alone

Love’s a blessing, not a curse

Let’s enjoy the universe

 

I feel like stepping out

Into a different light

A brand new sky

For you and I

 

I dream out loud

And we’re Northern bound

Can I take you to my holy ground

 

So wait for me, wait down town

I wanna take you home tonight

But darling don’t be late, the plane won’t wait

Gotta catch that Northern Light

 

Let me take the wheel, I promise joy you’ll feel

When I take you home tonight

You know the time is right

For a home-cooked bite

With faces shining bright

Let me take you home tonight
