​Take Me Away

This song is by Stretch and appears on the album Forget the Past (1978).

It was cold, it was wet in the dark side of town
The kind of day that can bring you down
Streets were deserted, not a soul in sight
I still felt worried 'bout the previous night
I wondered what you might be thinking in your bed so wrong?
Did you dream of what would be a shelter from the storm?

I done some talking, I done some thinking
I tried to find out what we do with this way
And for my troubles all I've discovered
Is when you borrow them you've got to repay
Could it be that we've made a mistake and it just ain't right?
We act like people who pretend that they're blind but in my insight

Take me away from this wasteland Brighton
'Cause it's not something they all wanna do
Take me away every piece of Brighton
It must be 'bout you

I done some talking, I done some thinking
I tried to find out what we do with this way
And for my troubles all I've discovered
Is when you borrow them you've got to repay
Could it be that we've made a mistake and it just ain't right?
We act like people who pretend that they're blind but in my insight

Take me away from this wasteland Brighton
'Cause it's not something they all wanna do
Take me away every piece of Brighton
I wanna be where I can speak some truth
Take me away
Take me away
