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…

We don’t have to go
All the way no
But if you want
I still can take you 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

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


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
