lyrics

Well we went swimming in the water

Then we went driving in our wet clothes

You had a towel wrapped around your waist

And I was dreaming how to let go



You took me up so high

And then you taught me how to get down

We hit that water with a splash

Then we went swimming from the waist down



Now, baby I know

That there are reasons you say that love don’t exist

But baby you know

All you gotta do is turn around and give me a kiss



And you call me closer, Marilyn

Pluck my feathers one by one

I’ll be your friend, Marilyn

But we were struck by a lover who went and married another

Well hey, I wanna say to you today-



How many days have left us broken?

Still we rejoice in things unspoken

I’ve got a lot of things on my mind

Let’s just relax into the ocean.



Well, we were sitting on the edge
Of 2nd Dam in the summer heat
All we needed was one slip

And all that love we dreamed of would never ever be



But you call me closer, Marilyn

We make love that’s never been

I owe it all to Marilyn

You keep me warm in the winter time
I touched your heart but you smoldered mine

Bitter like some cheap red wine
;
Sweet like drunken pumpkin pie

Well hey, I just wanna take you away



How many days have left us broken?

Still we rejoice in things unspoken

I’ve got a lot of things on my mind

Let’s just relax into the ocean.
