Just heard this song.  I’m feeling particularly inclined towards escapism right now, so I rather like it XD

Haven’t we all wanted someone to come take us away at some point in our lives?  Away from the stress, or the pressure, or the sadness, or maybe just the mundane routines of life.   If you’ve never felt that way, then I’m really glad for you — you’re either the kind of person who is content/happy with their lives no matter what, and that’s a blessing, or the kind of person who has the strong will to make the change for yourself.  But, being the dreamer that I am, I know I’ve wanted to be swept off my feet and taken away to something better :)

It’s okay if you can’t go and changed what happened
It was just a bad day
And you know everybody has them
I get it when you say
You feel like everyone’s passed you over
But it’s not too late
I’ll pick the weight up off your shoulders

I’m coming to take you away
To the place where pain won’t find you
I’m coming to take you away
So leave the weight of the world behind you
And you know nothing’s too far
Nothing’s too hard
I’ll always be there
I’m coming to take you away

Don’t cry cause you know you’re not alone
Now, let me dry your eyes
Now it’s time that you finally find out
There will always be a new day
At the end of every hard one
Now I’m on my way
So I can be there to help you start one
I’m bringing a new sun

I’m coming to take you away
To the place where pain won’t find you
I’m coming to take you away
So leave the weight of the world behind you
And you know nothing’s too far
Nothing’s too hard
I’ll always be there
I’m coming to take you away
To take you away

I’m coming to get you
So leave your bags at the home that held you down
You can’t pack for the place we’re going now
It doesn’t matter what’s going on
I’m the one to get you out

I’m going to take you
Where the sun lights up your face
Where you can’t remember yesterday
’til the hurt has been replaced
I’m coming to take you away

I’m coming to take you away
So leave the weight of the world behind you
And I know nothing’s too far
Nothing’s too hard
I’ll always be there
I’m coming to take you away
Take you away
