Stephin Merritt - Come Away With Me Now lyrics

Hey--come away with me now.
Little bird, it's not safe here.
We'll escape, and here's how:
My carriage is waiting; if we drive all night
We can get to the river and get a boat by light.
Hey, come away and be mine and you'll never be lonely.
You'd be mad to decline.
When a house is on fire, one simply can't stay;
But you haven't said yes yet.
Please come away.
