Summer Water

Sometimes that lake got angry As the lightnin' went and crashed Sometimes it was so still It looked like a sheet of glass But it washed away our beer cans, And it washed away our sins It talked us out of all our clothes And begged us to jump in There was magic in the summer water Learned to swim in the summer water All the small town sons and daughters Were baptized a thousand times Built fire by it like an altar Gave it every song we could offer Memories float on it like a bobber Out there on the summer water When a heart was broken It was better than a church pew sanctuary A lot of long kiss, rocks skip Sun drenched orange crush bottle caps got buried It's where you spend your first night with Your first love before the mercury starts falling It's where you spend the last with your first love Before somebody goes to college There was magic in the summer water Learned to swim in the summer water All the small town sons and daughters Were baptized a thousand times Built fire by it like an altar Gave it every song we could offer Memories float on it like a bobber Out there on the summer water There was something 'bout the summer water Every girl that's where you brought her It's where you slipped that ring you bought her On her shakin' hand Built fire by it like an altar Gave it every song we could offer Memories float on it like a bobber Out there on the summer water Yeah out on the summer water
