Butterfly Boucher - Take It Away Lyrics

There was a time when it moved me
A time when it was all I had
And although I had to grow up
I miss that place

It used to be so clean-cut
Everything was there to see
A place for me to be me
And then it all got serious

I want the fire back

Take me away, take me away
I wanna feel the way I did when I felt young
Take it away, please take it away
I wanna feel the way I did when I felt young

If and when I find you
I won't let you out of sight
'Cause the road at times looks bad
Kind of like you did

And all the time in the world is slipping away

Take me away, please take it away
I wanna feel the way I did when I felt young
Take it away, please take it away
I wanna feel the way I did when I felt young
Take it away, please take it away
I wanna feel the way I did

When I had all the hope in the world to carry me on

Take me away, please take it away
And play it loud like it used to sound when I was young
Take it away, please take me away
I wanna feel the way I did when I felt young
Take it away, take this shit away
And let it move me like it did when I was young

Play it loud like it used to sound when I felt young
Let it move me like it did when I felt young

When I felt young

    Just listened to whole album playlist for the first time, amazingly beautiful. So happy that I came to Katie at the Vanguard in Jan with a friend and discovered you. Still have trouble deciding if I liked that gig, or Missy + your concert at the Seymour best... third place in 'best concerts' has to go to you + Katie + Van Hoorn at the Camelot!

    Please keep making music and coming back to Australia to share it with us!

    Since I started listening to Missy Higgins, I had no found another voice that make me feel so lost in the melody 'til I found yours. Thanks for making me feel this way.
    Greetings from Mexico, hope you and Missy come soon!

    If ever Butterfly wanted to delve into another of the arts, she'd be fabulous in acting, especially on the stage. The drama in this performance is just breathtaking.

  20. Ingelief16

    singers like butterfly make it easier to cope with the shit in life, and to look for the good bits.

  26. spearofgod1

    Thats quite an intense experience watching this video. The lyrics are very evocative and your delivery is something else. Thank you for sharing this.

  27. chitchant

    I keep on wanting to find my favourite on this album, but each time I listen to these videos, the answer changes. Don't want to sound twee, but it really is an album which tells the tale of a journey and each step is performed beautifully.This song though with its wisdom and maturity will always be so special. Thank you.

  28. thislittleduck1

    I've got the album and love it to bits, and it'd be great to be able to buy a DVD with these ten performances. Stunning and beautiful, all of them. *Big ask I know.

  29. tippngthevelvet

    Speechless, sorry.

  30. Kat F
