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

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 features Gary Barnacle on saxophone.

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.
