SLS ~ Come Away With Me

Song Lyric Sunday

Jim Adams hosts our wonderful Song Lyric Sunday and today he gave us a variety of words to use for a prompt. I chose “Come Away With Me” by Norah Jones.

This song was written and performed by Norah Jones for her debut album in 2002. It was used on the soundtrack for Maid in Manhattan, a very cute rom-com starring Jennifer Lopez. The song reached 21 on US Adult Top 40 and 80 in the UK. Norah Jones’ father is Ravi Shankar.

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

  3. I steer knowingly away from ‘lovey’ music, so this one is new to me. She has a beautiful breathy quality to her voice.

  6. Nora is the daughter of former concert promoter Sue Jones and legendary Indian sitar master Ravi Shankar. This is such a mellow song, I think that it would be bice to hear as you drift off to sleep.
