Swing Low

by New Native

Spoke out the words inside my head a thousand times before I drove by your house in the morning, saw your mother stand at the door Go with the flow, man, I've seen you travel from place to place You told me you'd settle as soon as your restless mind's put at ease I called you up just to make sure it's the right thing I'm aiming at When you get the message I'll be long gone, see if it's what I expect It must be nice to know you've found the right space to grow It must be nice to be you Tell me, is it worth the trouble or hasn't it paid off yet? I need to know now, I can't risk putting everything I got at stake It must be nice to know you've found the right space to grow It must be nice to be you I thought that I've seen it all, summer, fall, spring If you're the exception, then why can't I tackle this?
Swing Low 04:30
I lean back, stay put and watch tongue-tied As you move right past me out of sight and I can be better and I could live up to everything that my father would have expected me to do I lie awake, don't move, stay beside me I lied before, I won't ever fight it But I can be better and I swear I could listen just as close as my mother and put aside all ambition I board the plane Wait, I forgot how to turn it off and make it stop But then, I can write better and I can sing softly Because it's all in my family and it's all that I'm used to If you swing low, I'll duck down I'll do whatever it takes to melt down
