FEATURE: “Lyrically Speaking”

    Comments:  | Leave A Comment

    For this first Lyrically Speaking, the song and artist is “Take You There” by Musiq Soulchild. Musiq was actually here in Indy last week, and I wish I could’ve had the opportunity to ask about this song. When you first listen to it, it has a sexy, mellow vibe to it. From the title alone, you can almost guess that this song is about things grown folks do, or is it? I’ll let you be the judge of that, but let me just say, the most important word of the song isn’t included in the lyrics. It’s the final word of the song, and you can catch it if you listen closely. What’s the word, you ask? It’s “head.” Musiq Soulchild’s getting a lil “freaky deaky” with this track, but he does it tastefully. With that being said, take a minute to listen to the clip and read the lyrics below:

    “Take You There”
    When I think of you
    I can’t see you like
    all the other girls
    I knew that I didn’t treat right
    but then
    there are times when I just need what I need babe, and I know
    you can give it all to me

    So how about…

    [Chorus:]
    We don’t have to go
    All the way no
    But if you want
    I still can take you there
    There
    There
    Hey baby, how about it
    we don’t have to go all the way no
    but girl I’m sure you still can get me there
    Hey
    Babe

    If only you knew
    what I’m willing to do (for)
    for a fair exchange baby
    from me to you
    but (I know)
    I know you’ve got your own reasons
    for making me wait
    and I know
    I know there’s a way
    that we can free ourselves

    [Chorus]

    It’s alright you can
    admit that you want it (its alright)
    as bad as I
    its so natural
    We all have our days and our sleepless nights
    When we wanna
    get some
    When we wanna get some
    [Repeat]
