Julian Lennon"I basically wrote 'Take Me Home' with Justin several years ago and I had the idea in my head, a melody in my head, and I asked him to try to transcribe it to guitar and we'd take it from there and basically what you're hearing is what it used to be plus a couple of things added. When we took it into the studio we felt that lyrically it could've been a little stronger. I still like the idea that it should remain a little folky in a sense, very simple, no drums, no nothing, just to the point and the original lyrical concept came up with the thought that basically I was feeling very insecure and alone at the time of the writing of this and it was justI was just thinking about things and the original idea came from the thought, I don't know why it was set in Ireland, the thought of two people meeting at a dinner or a party and thinking that that could be the last night on this earth and rather than be alone on that night, to be with somebody who you could just hold and feel you were loved or love them and that's basically where the idea came from and it's, you know, it's not necessarily a happy song by any means but it'sI think it's a song that provokes your thoughts about relationships and how you deal with people and how people deal with you and how they love you and vice versa."

The Lyrics

Take me home for the ride
I won't be alone
Take me home for the ride
You won't be alone
We won't be alone tonight

I am standing in the shadows of the garden
Confessing to the pale moon above
If I tell you how I feel
You might harden
I'm scared of being lonely
And of dying without love

Take me home for the ride
I won't cry alone
Take me home for the ride
You won't cry alone
We won't cry alone tonight

I need everything I know you could provide me
But every time I love the flower dies
There's a darkness in the air
That seems to guide me
If you want to see the heartache
You can look into my eyes

Take me home for the ride
I won't die alone
Take me home for the ride
You won't die alone
We won't die alone tonight

Sometimes our emotions make it hard
For us to see that
At the heart of loving is respect and honesty
And sometimes I'm afraid that I give
Less than I should give
But this time I will hold you
For as long as I live

I won't die alone
You won't die alone
We won't die alone tonight
