Kongos - Come With Me Now

Come with me now

Come with me now
I'm gonna take you down
Come with me now
I'm gonna show you how


Come with me now
I'm gonna take you down
Come with me now
I'm gonna show you how


Afraid to lose control
And caught up in this world
I've wasted time, I've wasted breath
I think I've thought myself to death

I was born without this fear
Now only this seems clear
I need to move, I need to fight
I need to lose myself tonight

Come with me now
I'm gonna take you down
Come with me now
I'm gonna show you how

I think with my heart and I move with my head
I open my mouth and it's something I've read
I stood at this door before, I'm told
But a part of me knows that I'm growing too old

Confused what I thought with something I felt
Confuse what I feel with something that's real
I tried to sell my soul last night
Funny, he wouldn't even take a bite

Far away
I heard him say (come with me now)
Don't delay
I heard him say (come with me now)

Come with me now
I'm gonna take you down
Come with me now
I'm gonna show you how

Afraid to lose control
And caught up in this world
I've wasted time, I've wasted breath
I think I've thought myself to death

I was born without this fear
Now only this seems clear
I need to move, I need to fight
I need to lose myself tonight

Come with me now

Come with me now
I'm gonna take you down
Come with me now

In 2011, Kongos released their album Lunatic, which featured "Come with Me Now" which was released as a single.

The band admitted that when "it didn't seem like things were getting along we really lost heart - we were ready to move on to new material". In early January 2014, the song began receiving airplay in the US, generating major label attention for the band who was eventually signed to Epic Records.It was released to US contemporary hit radio on 15 April 2014. The song will be released in the UK as the lead single off Lunatic on August 17, 2014 "Come with Me Now" has been described by Billboard as an "accordion-tinged" rock song. Members of the band themselves say that the song is heavily influenced by Kwaito music, which is described as being a blend of South African jazz, township pop, and Western house music. It peaked at #1 in South Africa, #7 in Canada, #34 in New Zealand, and #38 in the United States.
