"Swept Away (Sentimental Version)" as written by and Scott Yancey Avett Robert William Crawford....
Well you send my life a whirling
Darling when you're twirling
On the floor
And who cares about tomorrow?
What more is tomorrow?
Than another day

When you swept me away
Yeah you swept me away
La la la la
La la la la

Well, I see the end of the rainbow
But what more is a rainbow
Than colors out of reach
If you come down to my window
And I climb out my window
Then we'll get out of reach

Then you swept me away
Yeah you swept me away

You said with such honest feeling
But what'd you really mean
When you said that I'm your man
Well how my darling can it be
When you have never seen me
And you never will again

That you swept me away
Yeah you swept me away

Well life is ever changing but I
Can always find a constant and comfort in your love
With your heart my soul is bound
And as we dance I surely know that
Some kinda of heaven will be found

And you send my life a whirling
Darling when you're twirling on the floor
And who cares about tomorrow?
Girl, what more is tomorrow?
Than another day

When you swept me away
Yeah you swept me away
Yeah you swept me away

    My InterpretationI understood it as them singing about a short romance, like a summer love or something similar to that.

    He's been 'swept away' by this girl who he's just met and even though he may never see her again he wants to enjoy the love they've found with whatever time they've got left together..so he's saying who cares about what will happen tomorrow or what lies ahead for them.. even though they may not be together forever they should still be together now.

    "Life is ever changing but I will always
    find a constant and comfort in your love"

    But whatever the meaning, this song is so beautiful.. and I can't stop listening to it either <3

    General CommentThis song means a lot to me, more than I ever thought a song would ever mean to me. Please, try and listen to it and not sing along. Please, tell me this is bad without telling a blatant lie. Please, show me a song that showcases more breath-taking lyrics and brilliantly written music. In-fact, I'm sorry everyone on here hasn't commented this and shared their opinion on this wonderful piece of art. But I can see why they haven't because to my dismay, this song cannot be explained with words.

    Currently, if you want me to tell the truth, I could care less about interpreting these lyrics. Every word relates to my prior relationship. Every word, plain and simple. I may sound like an idiot, oh well.

    "Yeah, you swept me away."

    General CommentI agree, completely. All of the Avetts songs are incredible. The best thing about these is that while the music alone is beautiful and the lyrics along are meaningful....combined they are incredibly moving.

    General Commentespecially beautiful and pertinent to me at the moment:

    "You said with such honest feeling
    But what'd you really mean
    When you said that I'm your man
    Well how my darling can it be
    When you have never seen me
    And you never will again"

    here's to hoping that i'm wrong.

    General Commentmy impression is it's this man and woman meeting and dancing one night. They believe, in that night, that they may never see one another again but they believe they have the potential to fall in love with one another.

    "as we dance I know that heaven can be found"

    This is the first time she realized she could truly love and be loved.

    But do they make it or not? Do they see one another again after this night, or is it a powerful one-night connection? I don't know.
