Come Away, Linda

Female voice:

Speak to me
Quietly.
Nighttime is not kind.
There’s no grace
In this place.
Hope is hard to find.

Tell me now,
Tell me how
We can get away.
If you’re here,
Oh, my dear,
Speak, without delay,
What you came to say.

Male voice:

Come away, come away, Linda.
Slip out of bed without a sound.
Come away, come away, Linda.
Our feet will barely touch the ground.
Stealing away from a lifetime
That has never been true to your heart,
Everything you have been longing for
Is right here, but you must play your part.
Come away, come away, Linda.

Female voice:

Dreams depart
From my heart
Slowly in the night.
Such a free
Melody
Fills me with delight.

Whippoorwills
In the hills
Must be what I hear.
Still the song
Rolls along,
Whisp’ring in my ear,
Saying not to fear.

Male voice:

Come away, come away, Linda.
Your heart is beating like a bird’s.
Come away, come away, Linda.
You know I call with more than words.
Everything springs from a moment,
And this moment is your time to fly.
Critics and cynics can tie you down.
Cut their ropes now, and reach for the sky.
Come away, come away, Linda.

Female voice:

Close to sleep,
Dark is deep
And the night is still.
Was it true?
Was it you
At my windowsill?

If you’re there,
Don’t despair.
Call my name once more.
Make it clear
And sincere,
Like you did before,
Mi conquistador.

Male voice:

Ándele, ándele, Linda, (Hurry, hurry, Linda,)
Por la ventana, sin miedo. (Through the window, without fear.)
Ándele, ándele, Linda, (Hurry, hurry, Linda,)
Confía en lo que digo. (Trust in what I say.)
Tú estabas esperando (You have been waiting for)
Valentía que ya tenías. (Courage you already have.)
Ven conmigo y te prometo (Come with me, and I promise you)
Que nunca te arrepentirás. (You will never regret it.)
Ándele, ándele, Linda. (Hurry, hurry, Linda.)

Male voice: ¡Ándele, ándele, Linda! (Hurry, hurry, Linda!)
Female voice: Por la ventana al cielo. (Through the window to heaven.)
Male voice: ¡Ándele, ándele, Linda! (Hurry, hurry, Linda!)
Female voice: Confiemos en el destino. (Trust in fate.)
Both voices: Nothing can stop us; together,
There’s no enemy we cannot fight.
Ev’ry tomorrow’s a chance to shine,
And tomorrow’s beginning tonight.
Male voice: Come away, come away, Linda.
