Take Me Out
Franz Ferdinand Lyrics


So if you're lonely
You know I'm here waiting for you
I'm just a crosshair
I'm just a shot away from you
And if you leave here
You leave me broken, shattered, I lie
I'm just a crosshair
I'm just a shot, then we can die
Ah
I know I won't be leaving here with you

I say, "don't you know?"
You say you don't know
I say, "take me out"

I say, "you don't show"
Don't move, time is slow
I say, "take me out"

I say, "you don't know"
You say you don't go
I say, "take me out"

If I move, this could die
If eyes move, this could die
I want you to take me out

I know I won't be leaving here (with you)
I know I won't be leaving here
I know I won't be leaving here (with you)
I know I won't be leaving here with you

I say, "don't you know?"
You say you don't know
I say, "take me out"

If I wane, this could die
If I wait, this could die
I want you to take me out

If I move, this could die
Eyes move, this can die
Come on, take me out

I know I won't be leaving here (with you)
I know I won't be leaving here
I know I won't be leaving here (with you)
I know I won't be leaving here with you

비정한세상

So if you're lonely
You know I'm here waiting for you
I'm just a cross hair
I'm just a shot away from you
And if you leave here
You leave me broken, shattered, I lie
I'm just a cross hair
I'm just a shot, then we can die

I know I won't be leaving here with you

I say don't you know
You say you don't know
I say, take me out!

I say you don't show
Don't move, tide is low
I say, take me out!

If I move this could die
Eyes move this can die
I want you to take me out



Dave Montgomery

A weird story about Franz Ferdinand:
I was on family holiday as a kid up in Scotland, and we went to visit the lighthouse on the Mull of Galloway. We had a little tour by the guy who was keeping the lighthouse (Super nice bloke) and climbed the stairs all the way to the top to where he was going to do an abseil off for Charity.
Anyway, somehow weirdly came up that I was learning the guitar at the time, and he mentioned his son played in a band and was currently in the Netherlands touring. Thinking that was pretty cool, I asked the name of the band, and he only bloody said Franz Ferdinand!
Turned out his son was the bassist Bob Hardy!
So before our holiday finished I sent the lighthouse keeper a drawing of the lighthouse I made, with him abseiling off the top as a thank you for the tour. To my surprise he sent me a letter back a few months later with some signed photos of the guys, and a note from them!
I was a massive fan and couldn't of been happier! Weird how it’s such a small world.

Bad ending is it all ended up getting stolen out of my bag at school after a show and tell!
Still butt hurt to this day. :L This song always reminds me, but always a cool memory.

So if you're lonely, you know I'm here waiting for you
I'm just a cross-hair, I'm just a shot away from you
And if you leave here, you leave me broken, shattered I lie
I'm just a cross-hair, I'm just a shot, then we can die
Oh, oh, oh
I know I won't be leaving here with you

I say, don't you know?
You say you don't know
I say: take me out
I say you don't show
Don't move, time is slow
I say: take me out

Well, I say you don't know
You say you don't know
I say: take me out
If I move, this could die
If eyes move, this could die
I want you to take me out

I know I won't be leaving here (With you)
I know I won't be leaving here
I know I won't be leaving here (With you)
I know I won't be leaving here with you

I say, don't you know?
You say you don't know
I say: take me out
If I wane, this could die
If I wait, this could die
I want you to take me out
If I move, this could die
Eyes move, this can die
Come on, take me out

[Intro]
So if you're lonely, you know I'm here waiting for you
I'm just a cross-hair, I'm just a shot away from you
And if you leave here, you leave me broken, shattered I lie
I'm just a cross-hair, I'm just a shot, then we can die
Oh, oh, oh
I know I won't be leaving here with you

[Instrumental Break]

I say, don't you know?
You say you don't know
I say: take me out
I say you don't show
Don't move, time is slow
I say: take me out

[Verse 2]
Well, I say you don't know
You say you don't know

Eyes move, this can die
Come on, take me out

[Chorus]

The transition from the beginning to the actual song gives me goosebumps

VERTIGO ? : 10 years ago

@Cornelius Sulla nah me too

@hotelmario510
I read another explanation, the two parts weren't supposed to be separated but the rhythm didn't match, hence the intro

cloudface von ruckus

One time "back in the day" at one of the "indie dance clubs" I went to they played this at NYE and timed up the transition to the countdown and everyone there went absolutely apeshit

Cornelius Sulla

Me too. Maybe the only tune where I like the intro more than the actual song.

Best song of the early 1900s. This was a banger back in 1914, that's for sure. Gathered so much attention. He got... taken out.
