[G] Nightswimm[C]ing [D5] deserves [G] a quiet night.[C] [A] [C] [D5]
The [G]photograph on the dash[C]board, [D5] t[G]aken years ago,[C] [A]
turn[C]ed around backwards so the [D5]windshield shows.
[G]Every streetlight [C] revea[D5]ls the pict[G]ure in reverse.[C] [A]
[C]Still, it's so much clea[D5]rer.
[G]I forgot my shirt [C] at[D5] the wat[G]er's edge.
The [C]moon is low [A] tonight.[C] [D5]
[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]
Nightswimm[C]ing. Reme[G]mbering that night.[C] [A]
Septe[C]mber's coming soon. [D5] I'm [C]pining for the moon.[C] [D5]
And [G]what if there were two [C] side [A] by side [C] in orbit
aro[D5]und the fairest sun?[G]
That br[C]ight, ti[D5]ght forev[G]er drum could not d[C]escribe [A] nightswimmin[C]g.[D5]
[G]You, I thought I knew [C] you. [D5] [G]You, I cannot judge.[C] [A]
[C]You, I thought you knew [D5] me.
This one laugh[G]ing quietly [C] [D5]underneath [G] my breath.[C]
[A] Nightswim[C]ming.[D5]
