    Night - swimming   ...de - serves a quiet night,

       G          G/B   Cadd9    D6  G         G/B Cadd9  A7
The photograph on the dashboard,    taken years a - go,
   C                               D4       D4  D  Dsus2 D
Turned around backwards, so the windshield shows,
  G            G/B  Cadd9       D          G        G/B  Cadd9
Every street - light   ...re - veals the picture in re - verse,
A7    C                   D4     D4 D  Dsus2 D
    Still, it's so much clearer,
G       G/B  Cadd9  D6       G           G/B
I forgot my  shirt  at the water's edge,
   Cadd9     A7       C        D4    D4 D Dsus2 D
The Moon is low to- night!  |  /  /  /__/   /__/  |

           I'm not sure all these people under - stand,

It’s not like years a - go,
  Cadd9     A7            C       D4        D         G     G/B
A fear of getting caught,    of wreckless - ness and water,
     Cadd9  D6      G     G/B        Cadd9       A7      C
They cannot see me naked,      these things they go a - way,

I'm pining for the  moon,    and what if there were two,
 A7        C                 D4          D     G    G/B
Side- by -side in orbit a - round the fairest sun?
     Cadd9    D6          G         G/B
That bright, tight for - ever drum,
     Cadd9         A7             C       D4    D4 D Dsus2 D

You, I thought I  knew you!     You, I can - not judge!

You, I thought you knew me,
 D          G            G/B Cadd9  D6      G              G/B
