I'll Take You There

Album: The Next Day Extra (2013)
  • Today, today is the 1st of May
    Everything around us
    Everything a lie
    Your hearts beating fast
    As we race through the dark
    Past the really good people
    Who do what they're told

    What will be my name
    In the USA?
    Hold my hand and
    I'll take you there
    Who will I become
    In the USA?
    Hold my hand and
    I'll take you there

    Sophie and Lev are running away
    These are the days
    The days of gloom
    Lev can't smile and Sophie can't sing
    A mile to the future
    Where tomorrow is king

    What will be my name
    In the USA?
    Hold my hand and
    I'll take you there
    Who will I become
    In the USA?
    Hold my hand and
    I'll take you there

    I don't need to know
    Know where you are
    Only that you are
    Safe in this world
    Then I'll be content
    To get on with my life
    Eat, drink and sleep
    Look up at the stars

    What will be my name
    In the USA?
    Hold my hand and
    I'll take you there
    Who will I become
    In the USA?
    Hold my hand and
    I'll take you there

    What will be my name
    In the USA?
    Hold my hand and
    I'll take you there
    Who will I become
    In the USA?
    Hold my hand and
    I'll take you there Writer/s: DAVID BOWIE, GERRY LEONARD
