swept away lyrics – mandy moore

(m.moore/l.mckenna)

tried to find one more moment
before we open our eyes
give me something more from this ocean
that kiss that we don’t have to hide
i hold you the way i handle my heart
quietly guarded and still
i’m swept away
you allow me your sweet surrender
through a page of old poetry
that i may have never discovered
but you read it like it was waiting for me
you smile with your eyes
before it reaches your mouth
quietly guarded and still
chorus:
i’m swept away
like a stone that gets lost in the tide
swept away
and i’m fighting to stay on your side
alone i am fine and then you walk in and i cave
and i’m swept away
took your hand with immediate comfort
took your friendship right to my heart
caught up in that feeling i searched for
and i hardly know who you are
i’m holding on tight in the midst of this wind
trying so hard to stand still
chorus
i’m a sensitive heart that exists in hope above fear
and the weight of your words carry just what i need to hear
my questions are starting to settle
and the ocean is calm once again
