  • Get away
    Let's leave today
    Let's get away

    So you say you've tried, but just can't find the pleasure
    People around you are giving you pressure
    Try to resist, all the hurt that's all around you
    If you taste it, it will haunt you

    So come, take me by the hand, we'll leave this troubled land
    I know we can, I know we can, I know we can, I know we can
    Get away (yeah)
    Let's leave today
    Let's get away (what ya, what ya, what ya, what ya know?)

    What ya, what ya, what ya, what ya know?
    Watch for the signs, they lead in the right direction
    Not to heed them is a bad reflection
    They'll show you the way to what you have been seeking
    To ignore them, you're only cheating

    So come, take me by the hand, we'll leave this troubled land (you betta come)
    Why don't you get away? Get away (oh yeah)

    Lay awake at night till the sun comes up in the morning
    Never excited, it all seemed boring
    Make up your mind which way to go about it
    Choose your road, just don't doubt it

    So come, take me by the hand, we'll leave this troubled land (you betta come)
    I know we can, I know we can, I know we can, I know we can

    Get away (would ya, would ya, would ya, would ya)
    Let's leave today (would ya, would ya, would ya, would ya go?)
    Let's get away (would ya, would ya, would ya, would ya)
    Let's leave today
    Let's get away

    Let's get away
    Let's leave today
    Let's get away

    Get away, leave today
    Get away, yeah, yeah, yeah yeah

    Get away, leave today
    Yeah, yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah, ooh Writer/s: Bernard Taylor, Peter Cor
