We went drinking down by the water
Where the cops could not hear the sound
On my car hood down by the water
in another time

It was evening down by the water
When the town would not hear the sound
Took our clothes off down by the water
It was summertime

Now I’m back here down by the water
In the jungle down by the lake
Wishing I could bring back the water
from that other time

I’ll stay right here ‘till the morning comes,
and they’ll come back to me one by one
Before the rise of this stupid sun
Some way

We all leave our past by the water
And in our absence surface and floor
Cycle until we lose the water
from that other time

But fifteen years isn’t what it was
And I’ll keep waiting here just because
The memory’s strong as it ever was
Though I’m alone with this stupid sun

It’s day
