sweet and low lyrics – augustana

anywhere you go, anyone you meet,
remember that your eyes can be your enemies,
i said, h*ll is so close and heaven’s out of reach
but i ain’t giving up quite yet,
i’ve got too much to lose

hold me down, sweet and low, little girl
hold me down, sweet and low, and i will carry you home
hold me down, sweet and low, little girl
hold me down, and i’ll carry you home

the rain is gonna fall, the sun is gonna shine,
the wind is gonna blow, the water’s gonna rise
she said, when that day comes, look into my eyes
no one’s giving up quite yet,
we’ve got too much to lose

and i’ll carry you all the way,
when you say you’re fine
but you’re still young, and out of line
when all i need’s to turn around,
to make it last, to make it count
i ain’t gonna make the same mistakes
that put my mama in her grave
i don’t wanna be alone
