Sweet & Low:: Augustana

This is such a sweet song, with beautiful vocals and really emotional music. Great for when you are in a contemplative mood…

Augustana

Lyrics::

Anywhere you go, anyone you meet,
Remember that your eyes can be your enemies,
I said, well hell is so close
And heaven’s out of reach
I ain’t giving up quite yet,
I’ve got too much to lose

Hold me down, sweet and low, little girl
Hold me down, sweet and low, and I’ll carry you home
Hold me down, sweet and low, little girl
Hold me down, and I’ll carry you home

Rain is gonna fall, the sun is gonna shine,
The wind is gonna blow, the water’s gonna rise
She said, when the day comes, look into my eyes
No one’s giving up quite yet,
We’ve got too much to lose

Hold me down, sweet and low, little girl
Hold me down, sweet and low, and I’ll carry you home
Hold me down, sweet and low, little girl
Hold me down,

And I’ll carry you all the way,
You say you’re fine
But you’re still young, and out of line
All I need is to turn around,
To make it last, to make it count
You’re gonna make the same mistakes
That put my momma in her grave
I don’t wanna be alone

Hold me down, sweet and low, little girl
Hold me down, sweet and low, and I’ll carry you home
Hold me down, sweet and low, little girl
Hold me down, and I’ll carry you home
