It was never released but is the tenth song on the album. 

Background, Composition and ReceptionEdit

"Take Me Along" was recorded some time in 2009-2010. Written by Miley Cyrus and John Shanks, and produced by Shanks. The song is a Mid-tempo pop power ballad with a strong synthy back-beat and instrumentation that fuses an organ with the pop melodies while synthpop have elements in the song. It's prominantly led by piano, while the lyrics depict a relationship that's most likely on the verge of ending, and Cyrus pleads her partner not to leave, and that he could take her anywhere with him, the lyrics also hint that there is infidelity in the relationship on the male's part. Towards the end of she song, Cyrus comes to term with being independent and decides to let the relationship end, saying she'll be ok. 

The song received mixed reviews from critics, some critics likened her vocals on the song, although most thought the song, along with "Stay", was "overwritten" and that the production and music composition was lackluster, though some noted the organ present in the song, and gave that positive feed back. 

LyricsEdit

The city of angels is lonely at night
Keep myself alive by candlelight
Say she can't love you like I do
Look me in the eyes and say it's true
I ask myself is this love at all
When I need you most you let me fall
I'm always here at the side of your stage
Let you live your life, pretend I'm okay
I'll be okay
I'll hold you close you'll stay forever

[Chorus:]
I don't understand why you're leaving me
I don't understand how without you I can't breathe
Please don't, don't leave me here
Take my hand, I plead in tears
I don't understand why you can't take me with you

You can pretend I don't exist,
But you see my face everytime you kiss
I hope you hurt and your walls fall down
When you hear the sound that I'm okay
I'll be okay
You can't hold me down, I won't stay forever

[Chorus]

I watch you leave
Walk away tonight
And I'm letting go for the last time
And through the tears I say goodbye
So breathe in, breathe in, breathe in, breathe out.

[Chorus]

Don't leave me here
Please don't leave me here

I, I don't understand, how without you I can't breathe
Please don't, don't leave me here
take my hand, I plead in tears
I don't understand why how can't take me with you
