Well the picture I have
Is you standin' in front of a lake.
And there's sun on your face
And you're smiling in a way
That really gives nothing away.

And just judging by the shadows
Well, it's noon or maybe one or two.
You got the rest of the day
And your whole life to play
And the world is a-waitin' on you.

And I really just can't remember
The night that you went away.
Oh, it happened so fast,
So long in the past,
Did I ever know this girl by the lake?
Did I even know the girl by the lake?

And to live is to fly
And I'm a-learnin' to try.
Sometimes it's all such a chore.
And if the breeze doesn't come,
The clouds block the sun -
You've got to work harder to soar.

We're all here just a-dancin'
Like we know what we're trying to do.
But the fact is you can't,
So you dance and you dance -
Keep on moving 'til the music is through.

And there's nothin' that says that you have to,
No rules that say you must.
And what may seem unfair
Is just fate's way of daring us
All to learn how to trust.

And the sun on a butterfly's wing,
Stretching them out to dry,
And a breeze to help you with the chores.
But if the breeze doesn't come,
The clouds block the sun -
You've got to work harder to soar.

Well, the picture I have
Is you standin' in front a lake.
And there's sun on your face,
And you're smiling in a way
That really gives nothing away.

Did I ever know this girl by the lake?
Did I even know this girl by the lake?
