Swing Low Sail High

The Wailin' Jennys

Compositor: Nicky Mehta

I have failed you, i have failed you
I have lost my way, lost my nerve
I’ve failed you

But i love you, how i love you
I have turned my back, left you last
But i love you

O setting sun don’t sink before i’ve found my heart
Heart don’t give up now while there’s still 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, the even keel
I have waited

But there’s no one who
Makes it all come true
Just altars gathering dust while we bow to them

O 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

I have failed you, i have failed you
I’ve closed my heart,
I have failed you

But i love you, how i love you
All my days will rearrange to say i love you

O 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
