G        C    D5            G
Nightswimming     deserves   
              C A C D5
a quiet night.        
    G                     C      D5
The photograph on the dashboard,   
 G               C A
taken years ago,    
    C                  
turned around backwards
       D5               
so the windshield shows.
G                 C
Every streetlight  
     D5         G               C  A
reveals the picture in reverse.     
C                       D5  
Still, it's so much clearer.
G                 C   D5
I forgot my shirt   at  
       G         
the water's edge.
    C           A          C  D5
The moon is low   tonight.      

Repeat Bridge

G         C   D5           G                
Nightswimming    deserves     a quiet night.
    C                     D5              G5
I'm not sure all these people understand.   
     C            D5       G
It's not like years   ago,  
    C          A            C
The fear of getting caught,  
   D5                 G5  
of recklessness and water.
       C     D5      G   
They cannot see me naked.
        C          A        C
These things, they go away,  
    D5                G
replaced by everyday.  

          C         G                    C  A
Nightswimming.  Remembering that night.      
     C                     D5
September's coming soon.      
    C                     C  D5
I'm pining for the moon.       

    G                      C
And what if there were two  
     A         C         
side   by side   in orbit
   D5                   G
around the fairest sun?  
       C       D5       G      
That bright, tight forever drum
           C       A             C    D5
could not describe   nightswimming.     
G                     C       D5
You, I thought I knew   you.    
G                     C  A
You, I cannot judge.      
C                       D5    
You, I thought you knew    me.
              G           C
This one laughing quietly  
D5         G              C
underneath   my breath.    
A        C      D5
Nightswimming.
