Songtekst

Nightswimming
Deserves a quiet night

The photograph on the dashboard
Taken years ago
Turned around backwards so the windshield shows
Every streetlight
Reveals the picture in reverse
Still it's so much clearer
I forgot my shirt
At the water's edge
The moon is low tonight

Nightswimming
Deserves a quiet night
I'm not sure
All these people understand
It's not like years ago
The fear of getting caught
Of recklessness and water
They cannot see me naked
These things they go away
Replaced by everyday
Nightswimming
Remembering that night
September's coming soon
I'm pining for the moon
And what if there were two
Side by side in orbit
Around the fairest sun
That bright, tight forever drum
Could not describe nightswimming

You, I thought I knew you
You, I cannot judge
You, I thought you knew me
This one laughing quietly
Underneath my breath
Nightswimming

The photograph reflects
Every streetlight a reminder
Nightswimming
Deserves a quiet night
Deserves a quiet night
