When We Swam

Thao & the Get Down Stay DownBuy this song

When we swam our love to pieces
We washed up on messy beaches
You cleaned dry 
I would not drift yet
I should drink salt water to forget

Oh why, oh why, oh why?
Won't you sing?
Bring your hips to me
Oh, bring your hips
Oh, oh, bring your hips to me?
To me?

Oh, bring your hips to me
Oh, bring your hips
Oh, oh, bring your hips to me?
To me?
To me?
To me?
To me?

Well once I arrived
But you would not receive me
I wanted it all
You could not tell
Then I paid expensive attention to detail
The fall of your face
The wish of the well
The rush of the push
The length of the spell
And you won't 

Oh why, oh why, oh why?
Won't you sing?
Bring your hips to me
Oh, bring your hips
Oh, oh, bring your hips to me?
To me?

Oh, bring your hips to me
Oh, bring your hips
Oh, oh, bring your hips to me?
To me?
To me?
To me?
To me?

You tug so lightly on me
Work like you are on vacation
While I was swept wide
I wept for you across the nation

All my love I don't deny
When they place their hands 
On both my sides

When we swam our love to pieces
We washed up on messy beaches
You cleaned dry 
I would not drift yet
I should drink salt water to forget
Oh why, oh why, oh why
Won't you sing
