David Gray – Swimming In The Blankets lyrics

Swimming in the Blankets

When you reach for me

In the wee hours of

The morning

That is when I truly

Understand what the word

"tenderness" means

Caught somewhere between

Consciousness and sleep

When you reach for me

You are so free

So vulnerable

I love swimming in the blankets with you

No time to analyze the situation

No time to think about the pros and cons

No contrivance

Just understand what you want

What you need

You just want to be close to me

Want to feel the softness

The warmth

The intimacy

I love swimming in the blankets with you

My heart fills with joy

When you reach for me

In the wee hours of the morning

So spontaneously

So naturally

Without thinking about the consequences

So spontaneously

So naturally

Without thinking about the consequences

Because you feel safe with me

Because you feel safe with me

Soft kisses

Tender caresses

Loving whispers

Fiery emotions

Caught somewhere between consciousness and sleep

In the wee hours of the morning

I love swimming in the blankets with you

On a crisp night

With the window slightly ajar

The curtains swaying ever so gently

The moonbeams reflecting

Off the windowpane

In the still of the night

No noise to distract

No noise to stifle

What I feel in my heart

When you reach for me

In the still of the night

Blankets fall to the floor as we embrace

And express

What is in our hearts

I love swimming in the blankets with you

Isobel
