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




The photograph reflects

Every streetlight a reminder

Nightswimming deserves a quiet night deserves a quiet night
