Carry Me Away

Album: Working Class Dog (1981)
  • Stop (Stop) my head is playing tricks again, won't it ever stop?
    Baby, help me listen to my heart
    And then take me to the top
    I'm afraid of love, so afraid of love

    And I'm scared to make it right
    But I know tonight, that it's my last chance
    My last shot with real love and I want to take it
    Last chance in the slow dance, in the big time

    And I want to make it tonight
    You're gonna show what love is and why
    Between the sweat and the lovin',
    The whisper and the cry

    I'm so tired of all this shit that I feel
    Show me something real

    Carry me away, baby, carry me away
    I'm in love with you tonight, feels so right
    Carry me away, come on, carry me away
    I want to be with you, what can I do?
    You've got the power, you've got the love
    To take me to heaven or to lead me to heartbreak

    I spend my life waiting for the future and living in the past
    Baby, show me love that I can hold on to
    Give me something that'll last
    I'm a total wreck but I'm up to my neck in this love that I'm in

    It's a long shot, fun try from a real world, me and you, baby
    Last chance for the slow dance in the bright lights
    And I think that maybe tonight it's gonna happen
    Ain't no use in tryin'

    Between the sweat and the lovin', the whisper and the cry
    Show me something real

    Carry me away, baby, carry me away
    I'm in love with you tonight, feels so right
    Carry me away, come on, carry me away
    I want to be with you, what can I do?

    You've got the power, you've got the love
    To take me to heaven or to lead me to heartbreak
    You've got the power, you've got the love
    To take me to heaven or to lead me to heartbreak
