The XX – Swept Away lyrics

I get swept away
When I think of you
Take me to that place
Where it's control I lose

I'm soothed by you, you take it all away
I lose to you, surrendered at the start of the game

I'll never deceive
I'm right here, I always been

Hide away, I'll hide away with you
I'll let the world just slip away
And I'm left with you

Your little masquerade, I'm sure of the mood
The moments we share
Always end too soon

Part of you stays a while
Even when you're far away
How so far away, yet you feel so near
