Lake Song lyrics

Down by the lake
we were over-turning pebbles
and depending all the animals alike

And I took a drag
from your cigarette and pinched it ‘tween my finger and my thumb to let it die

And the sun burned low
on the radio

Say that you will
say you will or will you won’t or you whatever
you prevaricate your whole life, don’t you?

And this much I can say
I would have waited ‘till the oceans
fell away and all the sunken cities would reveal themselves to you

But you won’t will you?
Because you never do

And the sun burned through
sweet as honeydew

And I,
seventeen and terminally vain
well I wrote it down and threw it all away
never gave a thought to what I made

And you,
silver-lined reclining in your cue
you tattered me you tethered me
you…
The things you would, the things you would do
to tell the truth I never had a clue

Now we arise
to curse these young suburban villains
and their ill-begotten children from the lawn

Come to me now
and on this station wagon window
set the ghosts of your two footprints
that they might haunt me when you’re gone

And when the light grows dawn
you were forever gone

But I remember you
you were full…
you were full and sweet as honeydew

And I,
seventeen and terminally vain
well I wrote it down and threw it all away
never gave a through to what I paid

And you
all silver-lined reclining in your cue
you tattered me you tethered me
you…
The thing you would, the things you would do
you notice now I never had a clue

Never had a clue

You’re full and sweet as honeydew

You’re full and sweet as honeydew
