about

This song was my first ever co-write. It was with Cary Beare, (guitarist for Deanna Carter and Heart) the nicest person you’ld ever meet. We were up in his home on Lookout Mountain Dr, in the Laurel Canyon neighborhood of Los Angeles, early on a Saturday morning when we came up with “Take Me”. Cary lives in the former home of the 1960’s producer Paul Rothchild and the ghosts of inspiration were definitely floating around. This was the very home where Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, and many others had recorded and/or sought their inspiration all those years ago. “If you love someone, set them free” is the crux of this song. I think we can all relate to this, whether being the one to set someone free or the one needing to be set free. The challenge of that is the fear that comes with it…the fear of being left behind. 3/2005

lyrics

Take Me
Written by Julie Neumark / Cary Beare

Take all the time that you need and I’ll be here
You’ll never find what you want standing still
This road we’re on keeps dead-ending
It twists and turns and I keep winding back to you

Don’t go away
Don’t leave me here
If you must go away
Well then, take me
Won’t you take me?

The door is open, you can run away
Or we can close it if you decide to stay

Don’t go away
Don’t leave me here
If you must go away
Well then, take me
Won’t you take me?
