"Child Come Away" is the sixth single by British singer Kim Wilde, released in 1982.

The song was expected to be another huge hit for Wilde. Though its subject matter was dark, it was similar in sound to previous synth-driven successes like "Cambodia" and "View From a Bridge", and it was also an exclusive single release, unavailable on an album.

It became Wilde's first flop in the UK and Australia — only achieving success in a few European nations such as Denmark, Switzerland and Sweden.
