Lyrics

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, OK?

 

Take on me

Take me on

I’ll be gone

In a day or two

 

So needless to say

I’m odds and ends

But I’m me stumbling away

Slowly learning that life is OK.

Say after me,

“It’s no better to be safe than sorry.”

 

Take on me

Take me on

I’ll be gone

In a day or two

 

Oh, things that you say, yeah—

Is it life 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 me on

I’ll be gone

In a day or two

 

Take on me

Take me on

I’ll be gone

In a day or two

In a day or two

In a day or two
