"Come With Me Now" as written by and John Joseph Kongos....
Come with me now
Come with me now

Woah come with me now
I'm gonna take you down
Woah come with me now
I'm gonna show you how

Woah come with me now
I'm gonna take you down
Woah come with me now
I'm gonna show you how

Afraid to lose control
And caught up in this world
I've wasted time, I've wasted breath
I think I've thought myself to death

I was born without this fear
Now only this seems clear
I need to move, I need to fight
I need to lose myself tonight

Woah come with me now
I'm gonna take you down
Woah come with me now
I'm gonna show you how

I think with my heart and I move with my head
I open my mouth and it's something I've read
I stood at this door before, I'm told
But a part of me knows that I'm growing too old

Confused what I thought with something I felt
Confuse what I feel with something that's real
I tried to sell my soul last night
Funny, he wouldn't even take a bite

Far away
I heard him say (come with me now)
Don't delay
I heard him say (come with me now)

Far away
I heard him say (come with me now)
Don't delay
I heard him say (come with me now)

Woah come with me now
I'm gonna take you down
Woah come with me now
I'm gonna show you how

Afraid to lose control
And caught up in this world
I've wasted time, I've wasted breath
I think I've thought myself to death

I was born without this fear
Now only this seems clear
I need to move, I need to fight
I need to lose myself tonight

Woah come with me now

Woah come with me now
I'm gonna take you down
Woah come with me now

    General CommentTo me the basic idea is someone so set in thier ways and too into thier head but very much wanting, or tempted by, the thought of just freeing themselves. Sounds like they want that change but are unsure if they can just move and get out of their own thoughts. Or if they're just too old.

    General CommentYES THESE LYRICS ARE FINALLY HERE! Since I am the first one, I won't have a good comment, because I know almost nothing! lol! I think this song is a very deep song, but I don't know what it means. I feel like it may be religious, or regard good vs. evil. I have been working on a meaning for this song for months now. I NEED HELP!! IDK!!!

    WHAT DOES IT MEAN?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? (This is the biggest mystery in my life right now!)

    Certain parts of the song confuse me. I start coming up with a meaning and then all of a sudden I hear a part, and then what I was thinking makes no sense. Perhaps I am thinking too hard about this song.

    General CommentThe truth is this song seems a person tormented by the devil. The devil tells him to go with him, he says he was born without that fear.

    They are two voices that are in the song: the tormented person and the devil.

    The choirs represent the voice of Satan.

    He mentioned that he tried to sell his soul, and from afar he heard him say: "Come with me now." The devil told him not to be delayed.

    This interpretation is not original, nor is the first time that the devil is associated with a song, but this is what it looks like.

    My InterpretationBest Lyrics:
    "I was born without this fear
    Now only this seems clear
    I need to move, I need to fight
    I need to lose myself tonight
    ...
    I think with my heart and I move with my head
    I open my mouth and it's something I've read
    I stood at this door before, I'm told
    But a part of me knows that I'm growing too old"

    I thought I heard "Woe come with me now"

    Is that Dave Matthews singing BYW?

    TO ME this song is about embracing my eventual Death and not letting myself get down about it. Make my best effort with whatever time I have left.

    Love this sound.

    My OpinionThis is a great song. I heard it on the radio and I love it. Its about how someone is sick of their life and is gonna make it worth living and they're trying to get someone to come do it too

    General CommentThe song touched me even when I didn't understood a thing. Listening and watching it numerous times, I've developed some understanding.

    The song is about the rejection of the artificial world and to lose yourself to be one with the soul.

    I realize that now is the time having been afraid to accept myself for so long.
    "Afraid to lose control
    And caught up in this world
    I've wasted time, I've wasted breath
    I think I've thought myself to death

    I was born without this fear
    Now only this seems clear
    I need to move, I need to fight
    I need to lose myself tonight"

    Without self realization, everything seems meaningless and confusing. My words, my choices, my actions doesn't seem my own. My soul has lost zeal to fight back it seems as it wouldn't even warn me when I go on to sell myself.
    "I think with my heart and I move with my head
    I open my mouth and it's something I've read
    I stood at this door before, I'm told
    But a part of me knows that I'm growing too old

    Confused what I thought with something I felt
    Confuse what I feel with something that's real
    I tried to sell my soul last night
    Funny, he wouldn't even take a bite"

    I think I heard my soul asking for help from afar. And it seems that it won't last long like this.
    "Far away
    I heard him say (Come with me now)
    Don't delay
    I heard him say (Come with me now)

    Far away
    I heard him say (Come with me now)
    Don't delay
    I heard him say (Come with me now)"

    Having realized, I authoritatively command my soul to become one with me again.
    "Come with me now
    Come with me now

    Whoa, come with me now
    I'm gonna take you down
    Whoa, come with me now
    I'm gonna show you how"

    My OpinionI'm ging to ver chesy (don't know if it's written correctly this and other words since english is not my language)
    Songs can be whatever you feel in the moment you heard them When it says
    I think with my heart and I move with my head
    I open my mouth and it's something I've read
    It's like we used to act for the things we are tough or because someone would say something bad. And we are just numb and incative. Now he wants to move but may be he feels to old to star acting witth the heart
    The part of taking you down maybe is about being vulnerable, stoping to be so "perfect" and put the guard down.

    It could be for getting in love, for doing something in your carrer, or what ever you are not dearing to do

    My InterpretationMy whole interpretation of this song is based on mishearing a single word - "whoa". When I first heard the song I thought they were saying "War". War as something basic, savage, instinctual and without thought; and seductive because of that.

    In that vein, here's what I hear in the song - the narrator's voice, and War's voice:

    Come with me now
    Come with me now


    War: come with me now
    I'm gonna take you down


    War:, come with me now
    I'm gonna show you how


    Afraid to lose control
    And caught up in this world
    I've wasted time, I've wasted breath
    I think I've thought myself to death

    I was born without this fear
    Now only this seems clear
    I need to move, I need to fight
    I need to lose myself tonight

    War: come with me now
    I'm gonna take you down
    Whoa, come with me now
    I'm gonna show you how


    I think with my heart and I move with my head
    I open my mouth and it's something I've read
    I stood at this door before, I'm told
    But a part of me knows that I'm growing too old

    Confused what I thought with something I felt
    Confuse what I feel with something that's real
    I tried to sell my soul last night
    Funny, he wouldn't even take a bite

    Far away
    I heard him (War) say (Come with me now)
    Don't delay

    I heard him say (Come with me now)

    (etc.)

    Afraid to lose control
    And caught up in this world
    I've wasted time, I've wasted breath
    I think I've thought myself to death

    I was born without this fear
    Now only this seems clear
    I need to move, I need to fight
    I need to lose myself tonight

    War: come with me now

    War: come with me now
    I'm gonna take you down


    (etc.)
