FLYLEAF


Swept Away Lyrics

The evil fell from your pretty mouth, wrapped in your classic voice
Angelic in your syntax, demonic in your motive
Your pretty eyes don't know that
The water flowing from this well isn't fresh

Demolish all that sets you up against your rising up
Confessing all that's broken and watch the healing come
Spread out your open hands, admit you've held them shut
Turn all the way around, be swept away by this

Time for surrender
Spread out your open hands and he will raise you up
Confessing all that's broken and watch the healing come
Spread out your open hands, admit you've held them shut
Be swept away by this

Your clothes are smooth and spotless, the air is putrid sewage down
Wind of your pressed church clothes
Your eyes are black and empty, your deeds are just for showing
How big and bright your fake smile glows

I see you moving and their getting scared
Their eyes are focusing on something else
Your staring at me and I stare at you
I rage against everything that you do

See them surrender
Spread out your open hands and he will raise you up
Confessing all that's broken, look at the healing come
Spread out your open hands, admit you've held them shut
Be swept away by this

I see you moving and they're getting scared
Their eyes are focusing on something else
You're staring at me and I stare at you
I rage against everything that you do

So get this hell out, get this hell out of my way
There's nothing more that you can say
So get this hell out, get this hell out of my way
Get this hell out, get this hell out of my way

We spread our open hands and he is rising up
Repairing all that's broken, look at the healing come
We spread our open hands, forgiveness holds them up
We're swept away by this

Flyleaf rocks!!! They are part of the reason why being a Christian doesn't have to suck! Lacey's gift is so unique and you can hear her intensity in every song she sings. Even better in concert!!!

This song is about the amazing love of Jesus Christ, and what He has done by dying on a cross to save mankind from their Sin. The song focuses on how breath taking that is, and how it should sweep us

This song is a POS, I thought flyleaf had better things to sing about rather than petty pointless subjects like. But you learn something new everyday. This song is sad, and a disgrace to music...

This is by far my favorite Flyleaf song. It is so introspective and dark. And also, Lacey's voice is spot on. Good job girl!
