In the context of the lyrics, the meaning is "take me as your lover, accept me as your sweetheart", etc.

 

"To take on" is one of those phrasal verbs with 50 different meangings. 

I don't want to take on (accept) the responsibility.  I'll take you on (I'll fight you, I'll challenge you, I'll confront you).  The factory took on (hired) five new employees last week.  When we told her parents of our wedding plans, they took on (reacted).  And so forth....
