"Sway" as written by and Erika Wennerstrom....
My heart has drifted out into a place I cannot find
And the days go by searching all the time
I was searching all, searching all the time

I looked into the eyes, the eyes of everyone I know
And the days go by wondering where to go
I was searching all, searching all the time

I tell myself these bitter, these bitter days will end
You gotta, you just gotta let them go, just let go

So, I stumble and I sway into the room and I fade
I hope my darkest day are behind me
I want to stay here in the sun for a while
I hope my darkest days are behind me

Oh for way too long these things they occupy my mind
And all the things that I, things I left behind
I was searching all, searching all the time

Oh my my my these bitter, these bitter days will end
You gotta, you just gotta let them go, just let go

So, I stumble and I sway into the room and I fade
I hope my darkest days are behind me
I want to stay here in the sun for a while
I saw i saw the wide old world wide old way

And I saw I saw the wide old world wide old way

    General CommentI think this one is pretty straightforward. She feels lost, heartbroken and alone. Friends and family members just can't relate and this makes her feel even worse. She has a glimmer of hope, she is down but not out . Maybe she drinks to try and numb the pain, and in those moments she is able to somewhat let go and she wants to be able to stay in that somewhat happy place. It gives her contrast of her otherwise sorry state.

    I really love the lyrics , the music and her voice. It was an instant favorite the first time I heard it.
