Swept Away - Mandy Moore

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 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 arrive and I cave
And I'm swept away

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

CHORUS
But 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
Oh, alone I am fine and then you walk in and I cave
And I'm swept away
