I’m swept away
Yes I’m off the ground flying
Swept away
Yesterday’s all but gone
Like a hurricane
You are tossing me round
Find I’m swept away
And today you’re the one

For society
Shimmy shimmy shimmy
And you go
Oh no
For propriety
Shimmy shimmy shimmy
And you go
No no

But now I’m swept away
Yes I’m past the sound barrier
Swept away
Yesterday’s all but done
Like a Novocain
Shooting up through my arm faster
Swept away
And today you’re the one

But now I’m swept away
Yes I’m past the sound barrier
Swept away
Yesterday’s all but done
Like election day
You are robbing me blind mister
Swept away
And today you’re the one

    General CommentLove this song so much! I reckon she's just fallen in love, met someone who's really 'swept her away' and she's busy trying to recollect herself.
