LYRICS

Lady Lake

I can skip a stone until my arm gives out

re-living the first coffee that we shared

I can freeze my toes and hope the waves return my nerve

like when i first said you’re my love, my heart laid bare

 

Oh my lady lake

Oh my lady lake

your hourglass is keeping

the memories we made

in a pile 

underneath the waves

  

Remember the hug you gave me at the end of our first day?

You climbed up on a stool to make it fair

I didn’t want to hurt you with the fondness that I felt 

but I probably should have kissed you then and there

 

Oh my lady lake

Oh my lady lake

your hourglass is keeping

the memories we made

in a pile underneath the waves 

 

And so we grow

We grew so close then you grew far away 

And so we grow

I can’t get these tears or years to wash away

‘Cause I lost my heart underneath the waves 

 

I can throw a hundred stones until the shore runs out

recalling how we’d laugh ’til faces creased

we could spend all evening just lying on the floor

’til bellies sore from giggling, fall asleep 

 

Goodbye lady lake

Goodbye lady lake

your hourglass has emptied

all the plans we made

in a pile underneath the waves   

 

Goodbye lady lake

Your hourglass has emptied 

all the memories we made

in a pile underneath the waves
