child come away lyrics – kim wilde

child come away – it’s the girl with the deputy walking by.
just go and play
no i won’t give you reasons
so don’t ask why.
i read the story ’bout a week ago

they found her on the beach that night.
they said the light had gone out of her eyes
and no-one thinks she’ll ever be right. she was so full of her life

happy with the people she knew
but now no-one can tell.
child come away – it’s the girl with the deputy walking by. . ..
‘cos all they found were some marks in the sand

a message saying “she is mine”.
n*body touched her as she got in the car
and n*body dares to anytime. she was so full of her life

the girl that ev’rybody once knew
but now no-one can tell.
child come away – it’s the girl with the deputy walking by. . . .
and when they read her story out to the judge
i heard he had to turn away
it’s all over town.
i saw her face in the back of the car as they were speeding out of this town
she’s got a mark on the side of her face that no one’s ever seen around.
and what she is or what she’s become i guess the town will never know.
child come away – it’s the girl with the deputy walking by. . . .
