People say time heals you,
Recovers what the past had the nerve to break,
But I see that before we were through,
There was that time at the lake.
I wouldn't have known what to do,
About this attraction between us two,
Had you not slipped alongside me,
Then whispered "You'd better be free."
Your beauty overcame me,
Your simple airs and grace,
Everyone we met could see,
That allure upon your face.
We slipped into the natural pool then,
As the dusky evening fell,
The water was warm and gentle again,
And you took me away from hell.
Your body washed by the water,
So smooth and silky to touch,
I must remember you're somebody's daughter,
And not a goddess with a Midas touch.
Your soft skin feels so supple,
Your bite feels oh so nice,
I think we'll make a good couple,
But for now let's put that on ice.
The puffing and the panting,
The heaving and the blowing,
The rocking and the rolling,
Oh fuck, I think we're coming!
Those days went on forever,
The freedom, fun and frolicking,
But we knew we couldn't be forever,
And soon the distance was encroaching.
The two star-crossed rival lovers,
The two girls they treasured most,
Both could find no others,
But both still see their ghosts.
So meeting by accident at the lake,
After twenty years had passed,
We both loved just for lovings sake,
The walls broken down at long last.
We wed upon the hilltop,
Overlooking our precious lake,
You wore white,
And I wore out the words 'I love you.'
Now the hands of time pass slowly,
And I lie here in your arms,
I gaze upon the first face I ever came to love,
And thank whoever rules above.
The twinkle in your eyes stays,
The bite of your teeth,
My eagerness to love you,
Willl never cease, only increase.
