lyrics

Water's cool and water's clean
and good enough to give our feet
like an upside down baptism or something

to make us new where we feel old
inside our skin or in our souls
or just at least
to make us feel more clean

taking socks off on the lawn
felt like I was putting on
old clothes I thought I had grown out of
or stepping backwards into some place that I loved

I hope I die before I ever disappoint you

Dark is deep and dark is dark
like scariness inside my heart
or the inside of a middle school at night

Our reflections were in front of me
not bright enough to let us see
how old we were or how we looked that night
anyway, that always changes in my mind

You kissed me and we looked around
and I started thinking about
a picture where my mom taught me to swim

I'm not sure now where it went
but then while kissing you again
I thought I felt like I was falling in

I hope I die before I ever disappoint you

I tried to scream "I felt in love today"
with all the rage of roaring waves
but it came out like a sound from underwater

You make it harder to accept
that nothings ever permanent
and now I think you're all the things I thought were

when hands are soft and hands are wet
they make it easy to forget
that only those you love can let you down

So if it's dark and hard to see
you through the water over me
I'll scream and try to make a louder sound

I hope I die before I ever disappoint you
