lirik lagu wailin jennys – swing low sail high

i have failed you
i have failed you
i have lost my way, lost my nerve, and failed you
but i love you
how i love you
i have turned my back, left you, alas, but i love you

oh setting sun don’t sink before i’ve found my heart
heart don’t give up now while there’s till time
time don’t beat your old retreat
stay a little while with me
’til i’ve looked the whole thing in the eye

i have waited
i have waited
for the big reveal
even keel (?) i’ve waited
but there’s no one who makes it all come true
just altars gathering dust while we’re back to it (?)

oh night bring all your shadows and your silence
silence make a hostage of my mind
mind bring on your trickery
black dogs nip on at my heels
’til i’ve looked the whole thing in the eye

swing low
sail high
swing low
sail high

i have failed you
i have failed you
i’ve closed my heart and i have failed you
but i love you
how i love you
all my days were rearranged to say i love you

oh setting sun don’t weep for all the things you lose
morning comes as sure as it must die
dying is such mystery
yet i wonder will it be,
when i’ve looked the whole thing in the eye.

swing low
sail high
swing low
sail high
