Take me I'll Follow - Bobby Caldwell

It was an ET movie which first introduced me to this song sometime in the 80s which later research revealed that the movie's title was actually "Mac & Me". It was an intersting movie especially those times when people, including me, were so inclined into believing that there are Extra-Terrestrials (ET) among us here on earth. I remember I find it hard sleeping at night because the ET might attack.

I used to consider them mosters but when I watched these films (ET, Mac & Me and other alien-related films of today), my notion about them had changed. There was nothing to be afraid of after all. If in the future, there would be enough proof that those ET really exist and the tendency of them conquering our earth, then so be it. I am a believer of the phrase that "Everything happens for a reason". I would even believe a divine reason behind it. But that's ultra vires ("beyond the powers" of my brain as of the moment). That's too complex for me to conceive right now. I am just a blogger who tells stories about my favorite songs.

Well, let's altogether listen to the song as we picture in our mind how friendly those ETs are...

LYRICS OF TAKE ME (I'LL FOLLOW)
Tired of feeling all by myself
Being so different from everyone else
Somehow you knew I needed your help
Be my friend forever
I never found my star in the night
Feeling my dream was far from my sight
You came along and I saw the light
We'll be friends forever

CHORUS:
I can't face the thought of you leaving
So take me along, I swear I'll be strong
(If/when) you take me wherever you go
I wanna learn the things that you know
Now that you made me believe
I want you to take me 'cause I long to be
Able to see the things that you see
Know that whatever you do, I'll follow you

Somebody must have sent you to me
What do I have you could possibly need
All I can give is my guarantee
We'll be friends forever

Repeat chorus

Teach me more in each passing hour
By your side I know I will cower
Is it true that you have the power
To capture this moment in time

Take me wherever you go
I wanna learn the things that you know
Now that you made me believe
I want you to take me 'Cause I long to be
Able to see the things that you see
Know that whatever you do, I'll follow you
