When They Come to Take Me In For You

from Venus in Flight by Krister Axel

about

I was deep in a Ben Harper adulation phase, and this is that all day long. What's cool about this track is it was recorded completely live with absolutely no overdubs. Don't ask me what I mean by any of it, I don't think I knew then, and I certainly don't know now, whatever the hell I mean in the chorus. Sometimes the songs just pop out of your brain fully formed. This is probably one of the fanciest tracks I've ever recorded in one take on the acoustic guitar.

lyrics

It punctuates life
This rebel desire
Make me blue again
Make me blue again
Like so many days
That I found on the way
Get me through again
Get me through again

Sign on or sign out
Get down or get found
Because I want to be awake
When they come to take me in for you
When they come to take me in for you
When they come to take

The stars are aligned
for a ripple in time
Make me blue again
Make me blue again
I'm on my knees
Yeah I'm at your feet
Get me through again
Get me through again

Be real for me
We'll see what we see
Because I want to be awake
When they come to take me in for you
When they come to take me in for you
For you, ooh
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Be real for me
We'll see what we see
Because I want to be awake
When they come to take me in for you
When they come to take me in for you
When they come to take me in for you
When they come
When they come to take me in for you
When they come to take me in for you
When they come to take me in for you

Hi, my name is Krister Axel. I am a roots-rock veteran of the indie music scene, and I have a degree in Poetry. I am a published lyricist, composer, and songwriter. I started playing piano in White Plains, New York because our black upright piano fascinated me and my sisters hated their piano lessons. That was in the 80's and I have never stopped writing songs.
