Song Description

Come Away is a stirring Celtic style song that expresses the desires and longings of children who have been abandoned by their caretakers and overlooked by society. Their deepest wish is to be found, on several levels--literally found and rescued from ab

Story Behind the Song

Growing up in the 1960s I often felt as if I was in Midieval times, since my voice was ignored or I was called a liar when I told of my parents' abuses. One of my greatest dreams was to run away as far as I could, to find a safe place.


Come walk the twisted path where the hidden things lie

Beyond the streets of everyday, where the wounded go to die.

Come walk the pitted road where the children have turned away,

Where the lost are never found, and even noon is gray.


Come away, come away,

For a year and a day.

For a lifetime, for a moment,

Travel this ancient pathway.

Please say you'll come away.

Find me if you may.

Find me, do not bind me or turn away.

If you seek, you shall find me one day.

Come ride the winding river where the sleeping children float,

Cold as death they shiver as they bear smote upon smote.

Come ride the rutted highway in a car screaming by,

Oh, won't you come and find me? The little children cry.

Repeat Chorus
