lyrics

Lake swimmer lake swimmer
Late bloomer late bloomer
High water high water
Why bother why bother

There was nothing that I could have told you
There was something in your blazing eyes you always knew
Getting there wouldn't be hard
Something came in front of you and caught you off your guard

I was wishing I could be twenty-two
Still taking off my shoes and following you
All around my backyard
Places in the day that didn't seem so far away

Lake swimmer lake swimmer
Late bloomer late bloomer
High water high water
Why bother why bother
Risk taker risk taker
Taste maker taste maker
Hill climber hill climber
Cliff diver cliff diver

There are so many things I couldn't tell you
There are so many little times that I decided not to
Your laugh was always pretty anyway
Always thought I knew when they would take it all away

There was nowhere that you didn't want to go
Every path was always twisted and I always told you so
I heard that you were doing well in school
Something came in front of you and caught you off your cool

Tree burner tree burner
Better keep running keeping running
Shape shifter shape shifter
Seek shelter seek shelter

Even the statues in the corners wept
After everybody else had left
And I couldn't even sign my name
We always did think the same
