Never more will I get to see
The fossils and stones, the oceans bones and teeth
I never held onto air that long
It stuck in my chest, I let it out and breathe

Will you swim with me to the rocks?

Never more will I get to see
The breakers and tide
The waters pull and sweep

Will you swim with me to the rocks?

    Song Meaning"This song was actually something I started writing for my band project Liu Bei, but it just felt too...happy?! Either way, it felt like a good song for Aidan and I to start pulling apart and working on again.

    One of the best things about touring is getting to see new places, even if it's just for a few hours. I've played gigs in Bergen, Norway twice and fallen in love with the city both times. It's quite possibly the most beautiful city in the world. Although it
    rained constantly both times I was there, I was assured by my local friends that it is a summer paradise of sea swimming and sunbathing. Hence the lyric 'Will you swim with me to the rocks' - I just liked that simple, little idea of a being by the water and adventuring out.

    In terms of production, I was listening to the last Vampire Weekend record A LOT when I wrote this, so there's plenty of plinking guitar lines and synth choir to be
    found here."
