Swing Saved My Life

from Nobody Cares (LP, 2020) by O Sister!

supported by


I was gloomy, low and sad
My world was turning upside-down
My partner had left me, I’d lost my friend…
The moment was not the best.

If you can’t handle the blues
Swing could be your refuge
So set your feelings free as a dove
Mixing harmony, rhythm and love!

Why swing? Everybody asks the same
Why swing? Tell me, why?
If you’re not American, what is the thing?

Swing saved my life,
Its beat brought the light,
‘Cause I feel this bouncing music
came to me just in time,
And it was a perfect way
to put bright energy in my days.

Swing saved my life,
And only I know how.
Swing is the medicine that I love to share,
I’ll keep singing and dancing until the end.
