The library
Is where we met
Inside the temple
Of all that's wet

Dolphins and whales
Narwhals and fish
All float in time
As we kiss

We always swam in summer
We always swam together
Now we're never ever
We never swim together
We always swam in summer
We always swam together
Now we're never ever
We never swim together
We'll never swim again
We'll never swim again

A soldier's grin
Will wrap around
Our naked souls
Sprawled on the ground

Your father's face
Fades to black
The photographs
Stuck to your back

Waves will laugh
Ladies and men
Will get in boats
And row the Thames

We always swam in summer
We always swam together
But now we're never ever
We never swim together

We always swam in summer
We always swam together
But now we're never ever
We never swim together

We'll never swim again
We'll never swim again
We'll never swim again
We'll never swim again
