Seabear – I Sing I Swim lyrics
When the birds are sleeping
That's when the trees sing
You left your winter clothes,
And your teeth marks in my skin

So shake the leaves, off the trees,
Watch them float down the stream
Your son, your daughter
Swimming in the water

And I miss you, even when you're around
I'm a black cloud,
Sending lightning to the ground

So darling please, show your teeth
Just one more dance to help me sleep
Whirl, cold water eyes
Fill the past with friendly nights
Human skin, can be hard to live in
You'll feel better in the morning
Wash your hands in the lake
You've got a heart, some way

Trails lost in the snow
Make way for winter's eerie glow
And that black rock in your bedroom
I hope you'll climb it soon
In your boat, tied to a tree
I hope you'll find the sea

Throw me a dream please, it's been a dreamless sleep
For such a long time, such a long time
Sing myself awake
Watch the branches break
No one could ever take your place

Wash your face in the lake
You've got a diamond under your skin

    This song is hailing the intrinsic value perceived in a loved one. By opening the song with lyrics conveying romantic imagery, the song creates a symbol that nature is idealistic and idyllic, thereby allowing the loved one to become a part of a natural order and symbolize a unity not only with each other but with the world - metaphoric of the completeness the singer feels when with his lover. The line "diamond under your skin" is the most telling line, strongly corroborating the theory of strong intrinsic, internal value.
