"Take Me Away" was the second single released in Canada from Fefe Dobson's self-titled debut album and the first to be released internationally.[2]

Track listing [3][edit]

  1. "Take Me Away" (Fefe Dobson, Jay Levine) — 3:32
  2. "Bye Bye Boyfriend" (Dobson, Levine, James Bryan McCollum) — 4:14

There is a version "For Promotional Use Only"[4] sometimes referred to as a DJ single, with just the song and a brief "CALL OUT HOOK." It has a slight variation to the cover art and the title is rather plainly displayed in the upper right corner. The promo version art is often displayed incorrectly when the 2-track single is actually the one being offered for sale at websites like eBay.

The B-side, "Bye Bye Boyfriend", is also released in a Canadian single version.[5]
