Swim


The words are there
Between the stare
If you dare

You and me
Could look and see
You have to drop
As do I...
Our guard

And swim

The water is cold
And I am old

We can pack some food
If we're in the mood

We can shout and dream
And scream
If we like

But

Still you have to drop
As I do..Our guard

And swim

You In?

For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
