this lake town

i wish you and i
could walk by the lake
like we used to
years ago when we loved

but i hate that lake
i wish it would dry up
and with it the whole damn town
but ill change my mind in a minute

every inch of that town
has a memory
some good some bad
a lifetime full but not quite

so just take a walk
with me tonight under the moon
like you promised me
one birthday forever ago
