lyrics

I've been coming here every year at the same the silver hills are turning green
Needed a place to stay all of those years ago and you were so welcoming
But then one day you were gone
This never was where you belonged

I wish I'd known it
When you asked it
Out on Bird Lake
Your skin electric
All of the chances I lost by laughing and joking around
But we're older now

I find myself thinking of you when the smokey winter air is closing in
Wondering who your brown eyes may beholding and whether they love that grin
But I was a fool and afraid
Holding that sweater that you gave

I wish I'd known it
When you asked it
Out on Bird Lake
Your skin electric
All of the chances I lost by laughing and joking around
But we're older now

I wish I'd known it
When you asked it
Out on Bird Lake
Your skin electric
All of the chances I lost by laughing and joking around
But we're older now
