The lakefront cracks and falls
The frost of the morning calls
In whispers it cools me, cools me, cools me

Always seems to be leaving
Wily, feral, deceiving
I’ve been told that it holds and holds and holds

The warmer I get to you
The colder becomes the view
It seems so high, so high, so high

But then you keep calling me back
You lift in me what I lack
The water surrounds, surrounds, surrounds me

Do you want to go somewhere?
I’ve been thinking about nowhere
You know it stretches for miles and miles and miles

Drops of Saturday’s sunshine
Took me up to the red line
Said I couldn’t pass, no no, no no, no no

Then your hand on my shoulder
I felt a little bit bolder
The lines they waned and waned and waned

You cradled my hand, then
In the right direction
And together we bounded, on and on

Take me uptown to the lights and dancing
I just got back and I want romancing
Drink a little light on a Saturday night
And you won’t need a wake up call next morning
