Thieves by the Lake

Thieves by the Lake

Canyon Lake
Cody’s house
We went there some
We don’t go there now
That was then
Times have changed
The wounds have healed
But the scars remain

Summer nights
On the porch
In the darkness
We lit quite a torch
Talked all night
In the yard
The sun came up
Made things much too hard

Chorus:
We were thieves by the lake
I’ve done my time but my heart still aches
Either way we went
Would’ve been a mistake
When we were thieves by the lake

I was hers
You were his
We risked it all
For a stolen kiss
All our friends
Sound asleep
While we borrowed
Things we couldn’t keep

No one saw
No one knew
It’s one to take
To the grave with you
Standing up
Laying down
Love goes awry
When lovers are bound

Bridge:
We’re older now
Ain’t life grand
You’re a wife and a mother
I’m a family man
I cleaned up my act
So I’d get parole
But one dangerous night
A long, long time ago…

Chorus:
We were thieves by the lake
I’ve done my time but my heart still aches
Either way we went
Would’ve been a mistake
When we were thieves by the lake
