Oh me, oh my
How large a desire
To run from the streets in only our sheets
Kicking our shoes off and clinging in heat
I would watch a bead of sweat drip down
Tracing the curves of your soft frown
For all the wind or for all the world

'Cause we should be swimming
Going on into the night as if we were different
We should be swimming
Oh we should be swimming
Going on into the night as if we were different
We should be swimming

Oh me, oh my
I'm feverish with this life
Stumbling through hoops, tripping over these loops
Pushed by the pen and forced by the boot
So I look to you for some release
Toss things aside in search of peace
Bruising your hand so hard I squeeze, oh

'Cause we should be swimming
Going on into the night as if we were different
We should be swimming
Oh we should be swimming
Going on into the night as if we were different
We should be swimming

Hold your breath
Float down to this seabed
Then we'll see how long we can sleep
[x4]

'Cause we should be swimming
Going on into the night as if we were different
We should be swimming
Oh we should be swimming
Going on into the night as if we were different
We should be swimming
