You Take Me Up – Thompson Twins



I work on the front line
I work to survive
I sleep in a fever
So this is my life
I cry in my sleep – (Cry boy, Cry boy)
Just makes me weep when i try, how i cry
Know what it means to work hard on machines
It’s a labour of love so please don’t ask me why
Working for reason – (Day in, Day out)
Trying to hard – (He’s trying too hard)
Moving in circles – (Too hot, Too hot)
Don’t get very far – (Don’t get very far)
Should i ask you to dance – (Dance Boy, Dance Boy)
If i promise romance would you come for the ride
I know what it means to work hard on machines
Will you believe in love, one that lasts for all time

(Chorus)
You take me up – Oh Hoh
You take me up to the higher ground
You take me up, so high
Now i never want to come back down

I’m gliding these hard time – (Day in, Day out)
There’s hope in your eyes – (Hope in his eyes)
I don’t need a religon – (Too hot, Too hot)
Cos’ this love never dies – (Love never dies)
I believe in today – (Believe boy, Believe boy)
It’s better that way and you work through the night
I know what it means to work hard on machines
It’s a labour of love so please don’t ask me why

(Chorus)

I cry in my sleep – (Cry boy, Cry boy)
Just makes me weep when i try, how i cry
I know what it means to work hard on machines
It’s a labour of love so please don’t ask me why

(Chorus x 2)
