about

This is my attempt at writing a Carpenters song. Don’t overanalyze the lyrics of this one; it’s all just words-from-a-hat poetry. The coda, which strays from the main melody, is inspired by the way Paul McCartney did his patchwork songs in Wings.

lyrics

SWIMMERS (HEART & MIND)

Heart and mind
What have you been doing?
Repressing me all the time

Heart and mind
But all the things you've said
were great and fine, fine, fine
Oh my heart and mind

Lost and found
The lovers I've gathered
They're swimming the final mile

Lost and found
but never really back inside
my heart and mind
Oh my heart and mind

I swim the rivers and the oceans of my sadness
I'll never sink or be defeated by this madness
It's all illusion so you better think of something else you would love

I swim the rivers and the oceans of my sadness
I'll never sink or be defeated by this madness
It's all illusion so you better think of something else you would love

Telltale signs
in every endeavour
appear so I check the files

I have found
That all the things you've said
were clever lines, lines, lines
from your heart and mind

But in your eyes
I'm getting emotions and
oceans of tears and lies

You've returned
But never really back inside
my heart and mind
Oh my heart and mind

I swim the rivers and the oceans of my sadness
I'll never sink or be defeated by this madness
It's all illusion so you better think of something else you would love

I swim the rivers and the oceans of my sadness
I'll never sink or be defeated by this madness
It's all illusion so you better think of something else you would love

I jump to the water
And swim past the tides
I swim towards the altar
To my black-hearted bride

You are such a riot
Though it's quite a quiet affair
I'll keep you in my pocket
As we rocket towards our lair
We're just two lovers
We're dressed up in dreams

I swim the rivers and the oceans of my sadness
I'll never sink or be defeated by this madness
It's all illusion so you better think of something else
