Come Away with Me
Norah Jones Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

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

It took a longtime,
To find the real and deep reason I so love this song.

My mother, was a mean abusive, neglecting person. A alcoholic with bipolar disorder. The treatment for that in the 60's were very severe....
The few times, my mother would be a mom. She would sound like Norah. And the words fit her.......

So many bad things in our lives, can hold us down.
Finding the good, and letting go of the bad. Helps to raise above them.

Thank You Norah Jones,
For helping.....
With the healing.
