The Girl By The Lake  Max Stalling

By Max Stalling
The [G]picture I [C]have is you [G]standing in front of a [D]lake
There's [G]sun on your face and you're [C]smiling a way that [G]really gives [D]nothing a[G]way
Just [G]judging by the s[C]hadows, well it's [G]noon or maybe one or [D]two
You've got the [G]rest of the day and your [C]whole life to play and the [G]world is [D]waiting on [G]you
And I [G]really just can't re[C]member the [G]night that you went a[D]way
Oh, it [G]happened so fast, so [C]long in the past
Did I ever [G]know this [D]girl by the [G]lake?
Did I [G]even know the [D]girl by the [G]lake?
And to [C]live is to [G]fly and I'm [D]learning to [G]try
But [C]sometimes it's [G]all such a [D]chore
And if the [C]breeze doesn't [G]come and [D]clouds block the [G]sun
You've [C]got to work [G]harder to [D]soar
We're all here just a dancing like we know what we are trying to do
But the fact is you can't so you dance and you dance, keep on moving till the music is through
There's nothing that says that you have to, no rules that say you must
And what may seem unfair is just fates way of daring us all to learn how to trust
Chorus 2:
It's sun on a butterfly's wings stretching them out to dry
And a breeze to help with the chore
But if the breeze doesn't come and clouds block the sun
You've got to work harder to soar
Well the picture I have is you standing in front of a lake
There's sun on your face and you're smiling a way that really gives nothing away
Did I ever know this girl by the lake?
Did I even know the girl by the lake?
