G

The photograph on the dashboard,   
 
G               
C 
A
taken years ago,    
    
C                  
turned around backwards
       D5               
so the windshield shows.

C
Every streetlight  
     D5         
G

reveals the picture in reverse.

Still, it's so much clearer.

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

These things, they go away,

Nightswimming.  Remembering that night.

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

This one laughing quietly

G              
C
underneath   my breath.
