REM - Nightswimming

rate me

Nightswimming deserves a quiet night.<br>The photograph on the dashboard, taken years ago,<br>Turned around backwards so the windshield shows.<br>Every streetlight reveals the picture in reverse.<br>Still, it's so much clearer.<br>I forgot my shirt at the water's edge.<br>The moon is low tonight.<br><br>Nightswimming deserves a quiet night.<br>I'm not sure all these people understand.<br>It's not like years ago,<br>The fear of getting caught,<br>Of recklessness and water.<br>They cannot see me naked.<br>These things, they go away,<br>Replaced by everyday.<br><br>Nightswimming, remembering that night.<br>September's coming soon.<br>I'm pining for the moon.<br>And what if there were two<br>Side by side in orbit<br>Around the fairest sun? <br>That bright, tight forever drum<br>Could not describe nightswimming.<br><br>You, I thought I knew you.<br>You I cannot judge.<br>You, I thought you knew me,<br>This one laughing quietly underneath my breath.<br>Nightswimming.<br><br>The photograph reflects,<br>Every streetlight a reminder.<br>Nightswimming deserves a quiet night, deserves a quiet night.
