Canyon Lake

Canyon Lake

A picture of a smiling face on an old refrigerator
In a house by the water, where nobody lives anymore
I guess we’ve had all our wild times
Now what’s yours is yours and what’s mine is mine
Our bitter end became empty bottles in the grass
Looks like you packed up your stuff and moved on
I knocked on the door but I knew no one was home
So I’m a voyeur looking into my past

Chorus:
I’m staring through a kitchen window
Into a place we used to be
Now it seems like a horrible mistake
That everything we once held dear
Was found and lost right over here
In this little house at Canyon Lake

We tried to keep our life simple, but love can be complicated
When one person’s need for space makes the other frustrated
Sometimes when you hold on too tight
What once felt like love starts to feel like might
And insecurity grows like a big black cloud
Before long the need for resolution
Is more important than finding a solution
All in the name of avoiding fear and doubt

Chorus:
I’m staring through a kitchen window
Into a place we used to be
Now it seems like a horrible mistake
That everything we once held dear
Was found and lost right over here
In this little house at Canyon Lake

Bridge:
The water in this lake has always been choppy
When I started to sink why didn’t you stop me
All I needed was a soft and gentle hand
But you sat on the shore like some old boulder
While I went under and got colder and colder
I sure miss the feel of dry land

Chorus:
I’m staring through a kitchen window
Into a place we used to be
Now it seems like a horrible mistake
That everything we once held dear
Was found and lost right over here
In this little house at Canyon Lake
