Music Video

The music video, directed by Carrick Moore Gerety, was released on February 12, 2019 and stars actor Finn Wolfhard portraying a teenage Rivers Cuomo. Wolfhard's bandmates from his real-life band Calpurnia portray Cuomo's bandmates in the band Avant Garde. Avant Garde's eventual name, Zoom, is also referenced. Like the original A-ha music video, the video also features pencil-drawn, rotoscoped animation over live action footage.

Lyrics

Talking away
I don't know what I'm to say
I'll say it anyway
Today is another day to find you
Shying away
I'll be coming for your love. OK?

Take on me (take on me)
Take me on (take on me)
I'll be gone
In a day or two

So needless to say
Of odds and ends
But I'll be stumbling away
Slowly learning that life is OK.
Say after me,
"It's no better to be safe than sorry."

Take on me (take on me)
Take me on (take on me)
I'll be gone
In a day or two

Oh, things that you say. Yeah.
Is it life or just to play my worries away?
You're all the things I've got to remember
You're shying away
I'll be coming for you anyway

Take on me (take on me)
Take me on (take on me)
I'll be gone
In a day
