Nightswimming deserves a quiet night

The photograph on the dashboard taken years ago
Turned around backwards so the windshield shows
Every street light reveals a picture in reverse
Still its 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
The recklessness in water
They cannot see me naked
These things they go away
Replaced by every day

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 can not judge
You, I thought you knew me
This one laughing quietly
Underneath my breath

The photograph reflects
Every street light a reminder
Deserves a quiet night
Deserves a quiet night
