Fishing in the Dark

 

When you’re reading a song you notice the lyrics more than you would when you’re singing them. When singing them your brain kind of skips over the meaning because you’re into the beat or the next lyric. Reading the lyrics help you understand the base of the song and what the artist was trying to push. Fishing in the Dark is about a man falling in love with a girl on a late spring night. Its a pretty simple song but the meaning is very sweet and innocent.

Lazy yellow moon comin’ up tonight

Shinin’ through the trees

Crickets are singin’ and lightning bugs

Are floatin’ on the breeze

Baby get ready

Across the field where the creek turns back

By the old stump road

I’m gonna take you to a special place

That nobody knows

Baby get ready, ooh

You and me going fishing in the dark

Lying on our backs and counting the stars

Where the cool grass grows

Down by the river in the full moon light

We’ll be fallin’ in love in the middle of the night

Just movin’ slow

Stayin’ the whole night through

Feels so good to be with you

Spring is almost over and the summer’s come

And the days are gettin’ long

Waited all winter for the time to be right

Just to take you along, baby get ready

And it don’t matter if we sit forever

And the fish don’t bite

Jump in the river and cool ourselves

From the heat of the night

Baby get ready, ooh

You and me going fishing in the dark

Lying on our backs and counting the stars

Where the cool grass grows

Down by the river in the full moon light

We’ll be fallin’ in love in the middle of the night

Just movin’ slow

Stayin’ the whole night through

Feels so good to be with you

You and me going fishing in the dark

Lying on our backs and counting the stars

Where the cool grass grows

Down by the river in the full moon light

We’ll be fallin’ in love in the middle of the night

Just movin’ slow

You and me going fishing in the dark

Lying on our backs and counting the stars

Where the cool grass grows

Down by the river in the full moon light

We’ll be fallin’ in love in the middle of the night

Just movin’ slow
