R.E.M. - Nightswimming


Pop
Show Chords
Intro:

Verses & Bridge:

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.      

Repeat Bridge

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.    
Nightswimming.    

Repeat Bridge

Solo:

The photograph reflects,   
every streetlight a reminder.   
Nightswimming deserves a quiet night,            
deserves a quiet night.
