Silver moons and paper dreams
Faded maps and shiny things
You're my favorite one-man show
A million different ways to go

Will you fly me away?
Take me away with you, my love

Painted scenes, I'm up all night
Slaying monsters, flying kites
Speak to me in foreign tongues
And share your secrets one by one

Will you fly me away?
Take me away with you, my love

Can hardly think what life was like
Before I had you by my side
Can't say what I'd do without you
Knowing what it's like to have you

Hidden walkways back in time
Endless stories, lovers cry
In my mind, I've been set free
Will you take this journey, you and me?

Will you fly me away?
Take me away with you, my love

Fly me away with you, my love.

Take me away with you, my love.

    General CommentThe singer has finally dreamt her ideal man, who seemed to only exist in fantasies, into life; and she's buried very deeply in that thought that she can't even remember her life before.

    "Can hardly think what life was like before I had you by my side.
    Can't say what I'd do without you knowing what it's like to have you." - From this, it's clearly stated that they're together now.

    Or maybe she over-fantasized about him that it affected her sense of imagination and reality. Maybe she thinks the perfect guy she has been dreaming of is finally next to her when he doesn't exist in reality. She is being consummated by her imagination of him and she knows it.

    "In my mind, I've been set free. We'll take this journey, you and me."

    And either way she doesn't mind.

    "Will you fly me away? Take me away with you, my love."


    I have fallen in love with this song the first time I heard it. I was reading comments on "The show" by Lenka and someone wrote a comment that brought up the title of this song and I just knew I'd love it. It's like the i-know-i-love-you-before-i-met-you sort of feeling. :D

    General CommentI didnt know little annie before i heard this song but i love it. There is something about it that is so sweet you know? It makes me think of day dreaming, maybe a girl dreaming about her boy. Or it could be about a little girl and her imaginary friend.
