It sounds simple, but the chord chart for this song takes up two full pages!

lyrics

She came on like she walked out of a movie.
Her smile brought the springtime in my eyes.
An image from a fantasy, a moment from a dream.
She turned to me to my surprise.

She said, come on, take me away.
Come on, show me your way of living.
Come and show me your life and your heart.
Take me somewhere that's new.
Let me in 'cause I want to know you.
Anywhere is better than here.

I spent the summer in a land of make-believe.
It was so easy, like they say it's supposed to be
Until the day she set me free.
It was so dazzling I couldn't really see.
I wasn't sure just who was her and who was me.
She smiled and I felt it.
She laughed and I melted.
I closed my eyes and she was gone.

Oh, take me to somewhere.
Oh, take me away.
Oh, take me to someplace I don't know
'Cause anywhere is better than here.

Now it's been winter since I don't remember when.
I wouldn't be surprised if winter never ends.
I guess I really need a friend.
I know you don't know me.
I hope you can show me.
Oh can you bring me back to life?

Oh, take me to somewhere.
Oh, take me away.
Oh, take me to someplace I don't know
'Cause anywhere is better than here.
Anywhere is better than here.
