"Come Away With Me" as written by and Norah Jones....
Come away with me in the night
Come away with me
And I will write you a song

Come away with me on a bus
Come away where they can't tempt us, with their lies

And I want to walk with you
On a cloudy day
In fields where the yellow grass grows knee-high
So won't you try to come

Come away with me and we'll kiss
On a mountaintop
Come away with me
And I'll never stop loving you

And I want to wake up with the rain
Falling on a tin roof
While I'm safe there in your arms
So all I ask is for you
To come away with me in the night
Come away with me

    General CommentI love this song, not only for its lyrics, but for its melodies and vocals. As for it's lyrics, I think its woman's way of telling her lover to mentally, emotionally, and maybe even physically escape from the world with her for the world always has it's expectations and criticisms. When left alone with love, the world is only a roaring wind, unable to touch them.

    General CommentThis song is one of my favorites. Basically, she's saying that she wants to be with him (whomever she's singing to) and she wants him to "come away with [her]".

    General CommentAlthough... that might be because I identify with them so much.

    General CommentI really identify with the lyrics and they make me think about love. This song is about wanting to be with someone you love, and asking them to "come away" with you.

    General CommentThis is such a seducive song. Topped up with her inviting voice, I don't see how whoever norah's singing it to can resists not going away with her.
