G C D5 G C A | C | D5 |
Nightswimming deserves a quiet night.
G C D5 G C A |
The photograph on the dashboard, taken years ago,
turn[C]ed around backwards so the [D5]windshield shows.
G C D5 G C A |
Every streetlight reveals the picture in reverse.
[C]Still, it's so much clea[D5]rer.
[G]I forgot my shirt [C]  at[D5]   the wat[G]er's edge.
C A C | D5 |
The moon is low tonight.
[G]   Nightswimm[C]ing  [D5]    deserves  [G]   a quiet night.
I'm [C]not sure all these peo[D5]ple understand.[G5]
It's [C]not like year[D5]s   ago,[G]
The [C]fear of get[A]ting caught, [C]   of [D5]recklessness and wa[G5]ter.
They ca[C]nnot s[D5]ee me na[G]ked.
These th[C]ings, they [A]go away, [C]   repl[D5]aced by everyday.[G]
C G C A |
Nightswimming. Remembering that night.
C D5 C C D5 |
September's coming soon. I'm pining for the moon.
And [G]what if there were two [C]  side [A]  by side [C]  in orbit
aro[D5]und the fairest sun?[G]
C D5 G C A C | D5 |
That bright, tight forever drum could not describe nightswimming.
G C D5 G C A |
You, I thought I knew you. You, I cannot judge.
[C]You, I thought you knew [D5]   me.
This one laugh[G]ing quietly [C]    [D5]underneath [G]  my breath.[C]
A C | D5 |
Nightswimming.
