Nightswimming – R.E.M.

Night swimming
Deserves a quiet night
The photograph on the dashboard
Taken years ago
Turned around, backwards, so the windshield shows
Every street light reveales a picture in reverse
Still, its so much clearer
I forgot my shirt at the waters edge
The moon is low tonight

Night swimming
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
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
The bright tide that ever drawn
Could not describe

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
