Sleater-Kinney The Swimmer Lyrics

The swimmer is so far from the distant shore

The only time she never feels alone

On the land her body distorts

In the water lines are true to her mind

I can hardly see you now

Are you getting closer and

Do you know you’re the one?

They will never understand

How washed up you feel on land

The spot light of the sun, it shines on

The Swimmer knows she’ll never touch the floor

She can float unharmed by murky wars

And the land is as plain as her skin

But the water shines like the star in her mind

I can hardly see you now

Are you getting closer and

Do you know you’re the one?

They will never understand

How washed up you feel on land

The spot light of the sun, it shines on
