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 last, 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 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've waited,
But there's no one who makes it all come true,
Just altars gathering dust while we bow to them.

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 have closed my heart, 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.
