COME AWAY

I met you on the corner with your lipstick and your lace,
Frightened, sad and lonely, I could see it in your face.

I asked you what your name was as you leaned against the wall
And when you looked into my eyes I know you heard my spirit call.

Come away from this restless night,
Come away and walk in the light.
You say it's grey but life is black and white
It's gonna be alright, alright now

Your bruised affection, broken heart, your torn and tattered dress
You've had some problems in your life and girl I must confess

That I don't know the answers to the questions in your head
But I love you little sister, please remember what I've said.

Come away from this restless night,
Come away and walk in the light.
You say it's grey but life is black and white
It's gonna be alright, alright now

Instead of taking money from lonely men and hanging 'round outside bars
You could lay down in the long grass and look up at the stars

And try to think about the one who hung the galaxies in space
He also has the power, girl, to help you find your place.

Come away from this restless night,
Come away and walk in the light.
You say it's grey but life is black and white
It's gonna be alright, alright now

It's gonna be alright now, yeah.
It's gonna be alright baby.
You can, you can go home little girl
And stop running 'round the world
'Cause it's gonna be alright baby.
