The Lake

Typhoon

Tom: G
   G     
a northern state in the summer time 
    E 
my uncle’s lake on the fourth of July 
   Am 
outside the cabin my sister tried 
        Dm 
to call like the loon with her hands cupped tight 
       G 
up against her mouth as the fireflies 
       E 
became visible in the failing summer light 
   Am                          Dm 
a sparkler in my hand i went after them 
as they went out in the night 
   G 
i wandered down into a quiet place 
           E 
where the grass grew tall where it met the lake 
            Am 
there was a different bug must have bit my leg 
         Dm 
though i never saw it 
G 
back at home i cried in my room 
    E 
my closest friend the one that i confided to: 
   Am 
i wanted her but she wanted you 
       Dm 
i was sick in bed i could barely move 
          G 
and then as my body turned against itself 
             E 
i prayed for death that i’d come back to be anyone else 
Am              Dm 
be anyone else, be anyone else 
    G 
as sickness formed within my cells 
           D 
you never loved me like the way you loved anyone else 
    Am 
you dig a hole dig it deep enough 
          Dm 
the truth buries itself and buries itself 

    G 
and i 
           E 
i disowned my 
          Am 
own family 
         Dm 
all for love 
         G 
all for love 
             E 
and i was ashamed 
             Am 
of my sister because 
                Dm 
she belonged to me 
                       G 
when i wasn’t good enough 

     E          Am 
i’m sorry, i'm sorry 
                  Dm 
you were the only thing 
                   G 
i should have ever loved 
     E          Am 
i’m sorry, i'm sorry 
                  Dm 
you were the only thing 
                   G 
i should have ever loved 
(End with ukulele solo)
