Lyrics

Swallow Come Down
(c) 2005 Kristina Stykos/BMI/Horse Thief Publishing

I am the swallow, I am in flight
I have been flying all of the night
The sea is raging, my wing is torn
I am the swallow of the storm

Swallow come down
Swallow come down, down, down
Swallow come down

Off in the distance, is that a light?
Could there be a flame on such a night?
My heart is weary, but my will is strong
Could there be a place for me to belong?

Swallow come down
Swallow come down, down, down
Swallow come down

Hurricane lantern coming in sight
Her dancing and swinging is my delight
Glistening oak tree, weathered and true
She is the beacon that brought me to you

Swallow come down
Swallow come down, down, down
Swallow come down

Lend me your branches, let me come down
Help me find solace on solid ground
Let your arms open, let your eyes see
Keep the love flowing , between you and me

Swallow come down
Swallow come down, down, down
Swallow come down
