Great Lakes (Smith John)

I get into the car, drive away from the life Suddenly certain she won't be my wife And the jewellery I gave her Remains in the bottom of a draw In Some room I won't enter With a cold unchristened floor The man she is leaving, he stands by the door Weeping at words Hey brother, she said them before So I go to the water, it is time that I need Oh my hearts wears a fancy dress, burst at the seams All that had mattered and all that I've seen Diving into the great lakes of love It was foolish resistance 'til I heard in the distance The drums of the band, they were beating persistently Letting me know it's nothing but time to move on Perhaps I'll see her around, hair up top down And I could watch silently, making no sound It would soften the blow to leave without saying Hello So I go to the water, it is time that I need Love is nothing, love is everything, it's never in between All that had mattered and all that I've seen Diving into the great lakes of love The willow will bend and the wind it will bellow Straight, straight to the shore The lake is deception She waits in the shallows Swim, swim out for more So I go to the water, it is time that I need Oh my heart wears a fancy dress, burst at the seams All that had mattered and that I've seen Diving into the great lakes of love I'm falling into the great lakes of love.
