Song Lyric Sunday – Come Away by Citizen Zero

When you start a new job, it sort of takes a while before you start to really get to know everyone.  I think it helps to do things outside of work, but that can cause problems as well.  It’s a fine line, I’m guessing.

My coworkers and I went out one night after work to a bar to have a few drinks and just hang out.  They ended up telling me that our IT guy’s son is a guitarist in a band, they told me the band name and I started following them on Facebook.  I even listened to a demo and liked it, but didn’t really pursue it further than that.  It wasn’t until this week that I noticed posts that they were releasing their debut album, State of Mind, and it was coming out on Friday.

I ended up finding an article on Thursday where they streamed the entire album, and I listened to the whole thing.  It is amazing and I fell in love instantly!  I haven’t heard an album that I loved this much in a long time.  I went straight to iTunes and ordered it, so now I’ve listened to the whole thing a few times.  I love the singers voice and the guitar riffs.  I haven’t found a song on the album that I don’t like.   Our IT guy says they don’t have plans to come to Utah on this tour, but I’m hoping they make it here soon.

The hard part about finding a band so new, though, is that no one has posted the lyrics.  I was going to just post the song without the lyrics, but this is Song Lyric Sunday, so I feel like I have to have the lyrics.  I’ve decided I’m going to write them out while listening to the song so I can have a semblance of an actual post for you (brings back memories of when I used to do that as a kid!).

The video I found is an acoustic version of the song.   I hope you enjoy it as much as I do, and if you do, check out the whole album.  You won’t regret it!

Come Away by Citizen Zero
Written by:  I wasn’t able to confirm it, but I believe a combination of band members wrote all the songs on the album

Dark clouds rolling over town
Heartache came pouring down
Feeling so strong
A cold rush through my bones
I don’t wanna walk alone

It’s a slow burn
But we all go up in flames
I’m burned
Looking to make my escape

Come away with me, come away with me
Come away with me, come away with me
On and on I search for something
On and on and on
But, you gave me something I can feel
To make it through this night

I swear, love, this is life or death
Drink my cup and save your breath
Crackling fire burning cold

It’s a slow burn
But we all ignite
I’m burned
Looking to make my escape

Come away with me, come away with me
Come away with me, come away with me
On and on I search for something
On and on and on
But, you gave me something I can feel
To make it through this night

Take a breath
We’re gonna start a war tonight
We’re gonna light that flame
Let it burn

We don’t have to be alone
Fighting fires all alone
Trying to stay warm

Come away with me, come away with me
Come away with me, come away with me
On and on I search for something
On and on and on
But, you gave me something I can feel
To make it through this night
To make it through this night
To make it through this night
To make it through this night

  4. Very cool song! Thanks for sharing. I am going to try and chime in with a blog post of my own on a new song I just heard yesterday too. I hope it gets to all the right places or place it needs to be. Thanks for hosting this event.

      • I will have to look into more. The song I am choosing is out of my genre and I just heard it by chance doing another challenge called “Free flow Friday” but, I like the effect the song had on me……then I see this event and think how perfect….must be my hint to listen to music more one and two listen to music that is out of my normal genre. Trying to practice mindful living so this event will encourage that! 🙂

      • Even better. I think it’s good to break out of what you’re comfortable with. Many of the bands I love are ones I would have never listened to ten years ago. It’s great to have you! 😉
