late at nite, the air was cool
we snuck into the swimming pool
you dove headfirst, i waded in
the scent of chlorine upon our skin

the stars were bright, the water clear
i felt your heat as you swam near
i held my breath, you held my hand
moving away, further from land
the moon was full, everything blue
the water stilled, reflecting you
floating right here with you next to me
gazing at stars, we drift silently

late at nite, the air was cool
we snuck into the swimming pool
i went under and you followed
let's not think about tomorrow

everything is perfect now

everything is perfect now - i held my breath
everything is perfect now - you held my hand
everything is perfect now - moving away
everything is perfect now - further from land
everything is perfect now - the stars were bright
everything is perfect now - the water clear
everything is perfect now - i felt your heat
everything is perfect now - as you swam near
everything is perfect now

    General CommentI hadn't heard this song, or of Freezepop actually, before tonight's episode of The L Word. From the scene it was used in and the lyrics to me it means finally being with someone who it seems you're just not meant to be with. Maybe it's someone who's your total opposite, maybe it's someone who you could NEVER see yourself being with but in the end...everything is perfect now. How did that happen? Love worked it's crazy, inexplicable magic. From Tina & Bette back together to Captain Williams with Alice, all of the relationships make sense in a nonsensical way. And this song fits right in.

    Also, am I the only one who thinks this song would be AWESOME for a series finale?

    General CommentOh boy, do I love this song. I'm thinking it represents a deep lust that these two have for each other. One of them is headfirst into everything, while the other is cautious. They're forgetting about the differences in themselves for just this night.
    Who knows if I'm right, but I do love the lyrics to this song.

    General CommentThe melody, the words, everything is just perfect, makes me feel in love.

    Small details that tell you how perfect that person is.
