"Away" as written by and Ed/lynch Brown....
I heard he is missing in the river now
They say he is nowhere to be found
I hope she sang the sweetest lullaby
So that he was calm when he went down
Angels sing Glory Hallelujah
But he will bring his voice to heaven and blow them all away
He will bring his voice to heaven and blow them all away
I guess he is singing in the water now
Breathing in the purity of sound

I know she promised him a lilac crown
So that he was not afraid to drown
Angels sing Glory Hallelujah
But he will bring his voice to heaven and blow them all away
He will bring his voice to heaven and blow them all away
Put them all to shame
Blow them all away
Away
Away

    General CommentThis is a love song to a dying man.. I cry almost everytime I hear this.

    Hannah Fury haunts me hours after I have finished listening. Just a song is a life experience.

    My InterpretationNot sure of the time frame of when this song was written, but for me it brings to mind the death of Jeff Buckley. He drowned, but his body wasn't found immediately. He certainly had an angelic singing voice. He also had a connection with Elizabeth Fraser of Cocteau Twins around that time. They recorded a duet. Is she the lullaby singer referenced? Or maybe it has nothing to do with this at all, but it's where my own head takes it.

    General CommentI remember reading an interview with Hannah and she said that this song was written about Jeff Buckley. When Jeff went missing, she knew in her heart that he was dead. She then wrote this song - she wrote it before his body was found.

    Such a beautiful and sad tribute to Jeff.
