Be careful what you say,
Loose talk could sink this ship
Well the way that I am as weak as a lamb,
See it on my shaky lip
There's more to these actions,
That you could ever know
With the moon and the tide I'm drawn to your side
And moving with the flow
When it's time to choose and it's sink or swim,
I know I'll drown this time
When the cold wind blows and I'm falling in,
Throw the line
Now I'm swept,
And I'm lost within my mind
On a love that makes me blind
And this feeling I just can't forget,
Now I'm swept
On a tide that's in my soul
And this feeling that I have is losing me control
And I hope it doesn't end just yet,
Now I'm swept
Mind over matter,
No matter where this mind will be
There's more to be said, oh, for games in the head
Than anything you'll ever see
There's safety in dreaming,
So wrap me in things that I know
With my head in the sand,
I'm at your command
And moving with the flow
When it's time to choose and it's sink or swim,
I know I'll drown this time
When the cold wind blows and I'm falling in,
Throw the line
Now I'm swept,
And I'm lost within my mind
On a love that makes me blind
And this feeling I just can't forget,
Now I'm swept
On a tide that's in my soul
And this feeling that I have is losing me control
And I hope it doesn't end just yet,
Now I'm swept
