Come Little Children
Erutan Lyrics


Come Little Children
I'll Take Thee Away, Into A Land
Of Enchantment
Come Little Children
The Time's Come To Play
Here In My Garden
Of Shadows

Follow Sweet Children
I'll Show Thee the Way
Through All The Pain And
The Sorrow
Weep Not Poor Children
For Life Is This Way
Murdering Beauty And
Passions

Hush Now Dear Children
It Must Be This Way
Too Weary Of Life And
Deceptions

Rest Now My Children
For Soon We'll Away
Into The Calm And
The Quiet

Come Little Children
I'll Take Thee Away, Into A Land
Of Enchantment

Come Little Children
The Time's Come To Play
Here In My Garden
Of Shadows

I love this. The song is about trying to take the children away to keep them innocent from all the pain and sorrows of life. A impossible task but one every parent wishes to do

The fact it says “hush now dear children. It must be this way, weary of life and deceptions” it is about telling children their fate is to die and to accept that they are about to die

Harrypotterfan334

No. It’s about children dying

Chase Morrison

I see/hear it as the opposite. Her "garden of shadows" is life and how much it sucks and she is taking them to play in it...

Gothic

Uh... Here in my garden of shadows? Rest now my children?

Are you sure?

... It sounds more like a lullaby before euthanasia. 😬

Mär Chen

It always feels like it's describing death to me, come to take us 'children' away, when it's time for us to die...

That also seems to fit more with the original purpose for the movie it was written for

The Jupiter 2

I deeply fell in love with this song when it originally was sung by the pretty blonde Witch Sarah in the Disney movie Hocus Pocus it was called Sarah's theme in the movie and was a shorter version of this and then Kate Covington recorded this longer version of the same song.

@Rebekah Martin Brock Walsh wrote the original lyrics and James Horner composed the song specifically for Hocus Pocus back in 1993. These lyrics first surfaced around 2002, with the false attribute to Edgar Allen Poe. The rest is all urban legend, there is no older original, though the theme of the song has vague similarities to William Blake's The Stolen Child poem.

Rebekah Martin

It wasn't originally from Hocus Pocus, they adapted the original for the film.

Ioanna

Such an emotional and sad song. Sometimes life is unfair and children who shouldn't have lose their lives, they end up losing it...
