I get swept away
When I think of you.
Take me to that place,
Your words control my moves.
I'm soothed by you,
You take it all away.
I lose to you,
Surrendered at the start of it.
I'll never learn to see
Why here I'll always be.
I hide away with you.
I like the world you see,
The way I'm there with you.
You're out of the sky, a shadow at morn
The moments we shared always end too soon.
None of this fades away even when you're gone away.
I'm so far away yet you feel so near.

Beat-fingers Jamie Smith mission-controls this eery club cool down, cymbal-snap-studded and guitar-strangled like a deep ocean whale swan song, while Madley-Croft and Sim exchange tortured sweet nothings, vulnerable, cold-sweating out-of-the-bedroom – “I’m so far away yet you feel so near.”
Pulling together a song that goes through transitional phases like the seasons really motivates a successful story from The xx this time around. This, together with hand claps and heavy drum beats pair to inspire the emotional process in being so enthralled by another person.
Bittersweet is “Swept Away,” so open in affection, so admitting in defeat. But as Madley-Croft loses herself to her extensive, swirling guitar solo, one can’t help but sense she is also losing herself to a world where everything turned out okay.
