Description
Random song-related facts:
1. I couldn't hit the high notes with the regular guitar tuning, so I tuned my guitar down 3 semi-tones.
2. My profile pic is me taking a selfie alone in Honolulu on business earlier this year.
3. The song pic is me and the wife on one of the Bahama Isles (Paradise Island). One of my kids took the shot.
4. I'm playing all the parts on this: vocals, guitars, bass, drums and piano.

Lyrics
Paris is nice
I have been there twice
You can spend a week or two just in the Louvre
But because you weren't there
I didn't really care
The city of lights don't mean much without you

Honolulu's alright
So much to do at night.
Drinking rum in coconuts fresh from the tree
But because I wasn't with you
There was little I wanted to do
After three days I just wanted to leave

Paradise isn't quite as nice, if I'm not with you
The sun is not nearly as bright, the water is not as blue
The seven wonders couldn't hold my eye if I'm not seeing them with you
So please come away with me, we'll make a paradise me and you

The Bahama Isles
They will bring us smiles
The beaches are nice and the air is so clear
The water is crystal blue
I''ll be happy to be there with you
You with a daiquiri
Me with a beer

Venice Italy
We can go and see
Or maybe a nice place way down in Mexico
We'll go where it's not going to rain
We can make like Andy Dufresne
And take a boat out of Zihuatanejo

Come Away With Me
Some fine imagery and sentiment in the lyrics, J. As Vic said, the quality, layered vocal work really gives the song a "beach boys" vibe. Very nicely done. Thanks, Peter.

Ha ha
It is pretty sappy. I can imagine me playing it at a college fraternity party and, at the chorus, John Belushi grabs my guitar and smashes it. Thanks for listening.

Great harmonies
I'm listening to this on a Sunday afternoon. Very apt. A relaxing, drowsy little number. Lovely vocals.
