It’ll be a Wednesday
And I’ll be going in this coffee shop
Hear the barista call an oat milk latte and your name
And I look up from my phone
And think there’s no chance it’s you, but it is
You’ll say, “Hi”, I’ll say, “Hi, how are you?”
You’ll say, “How’s your family? How’s your sister?”
I’ll say, “Shannon’s being Shannon”
After a minute of nonsensical chatter, you’ll say
“Well, this was really nice, maybe we should do this on purpose sometime”
And it’ll have been long enough that we won’t harp on (Mmm-hmm)

Arguments in your garage
All the ways we sabotaged it (Mmm-hmm)
What it was and what it wasn’t

We’ve been swimming on the edge of a cliff
I’m resistant, but going down with the ship
It’d be so nice, right? Right?
If we could take it all off and just exist
And skinny dip in water under the bridge

You’ll suggest a restaurant we used to go to
And I’ll say, “Won’t that be too nostalgic?”
And you’ll say, “Maybe, but let’s do it anyway”
We won’t sit at our same old table, I promise
And we won’t bring up the past, we’ll keep it bureaucratic
And we won’t say it
But both of us, we’ll be thinking about how different we are
From those scared little kids that had those (Mmm-hmm)

Arguments in your garage
All the ways we sabotaged it (Mmm-hmm)
What it was and what it wasn’t

We’ve been swimming on the edge of a cliff
I’m resistant, but going down with the ship
It’d be so nice, right? Right?
If we could take it all off and just exist
And skinny dip in water under the bridge

Ah-ha-ha, ah-ha, ah-ha, ha
Ah-ha-ha, ah-ha, ah-ha, ha
Ah-ha-ha, ah-ha, ah-ha, ha
Ah-ha-ha, ah-ha, ah-ha, ha

We’ve been swimming on the edge of a cliff
I’m resistant, but going down with the ship
It’d be so nice, right? Right?
If we could take it all off and just exist
And skinny dip in water under the bridge

Sabrina Carpenter shared a snippet of “Skinny Dipping” on YouTube on the 25th of August, 2021: she posted a video with a fragment of the song playing on tape player with her sitting on the roof and lip-syncing to the song. She also sent an e-mail news-letter to her fans and capitalized some of the words to spell the song’s title. “hello my little detectiveS happy monday !! there is so much in the worKs I caN’t wait to tell you all about. iN the meantime You shoulD know how much I love you all hoPe you are keePING your eyes peeled.
