Mandy Moore – Swept Away lyrics

(M. Moore/L. Mckenna)

Tried to find one more moment
Before we open our eyes
Give me something more form this ocean
That kiss that we don't have to hide
I hold you away a hand to my heart
Wildly cautious and still
I'm swept away
You allow me your sweet surrender
You're 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
Wildly guarded and still
I'm swept away
Like a stone that gets lost in the tide
Swept away
And I'm fighting to stay on your side
One night I'm fine and then you call and I cave
I'm just swept away
Take your hand with immediate comfort
Took your friendship right to my arms
Caught up in that feeling I've searched for
And I hardly know who you are
(Don'T know this line)
Trying so hard to stand still
I'm a sensitive ....
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
