Come Away With Me

Artist: Norah Jones

Album: Come Away With Me

Song Length: 3:18

George's Thoughts: A beautiful pop charts melody, with vocals sung with rich emotion and tenderness by Grammy winner Norah Jones. Too slow for competition use but it can be used to practice technique. Despite the slow speed it's one of my favorite Waltz songs. Perfect for informal parties. Several strict-tempo versions are available from Dancelife. The best of these is on the album "Masters of Modern Seven," but it's still below regulation speed at 28bpm. Norah's original song also appears on the "Maid in Manhattan" soundtrack album.

Song Lyrics:

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

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
