The love song of the album. Maggie and I used to jump in there a lot in our early years.


Leaving town
on the South-bound highway
that leads us down
past creeks and streams that we know so well
to be part of the spell

It's not far now
we've past by the five lakes
and Cavell
and the Iron Mountain rises and swells
in our window

For all it's worth
this tiny lake by the river
calls our names

Standing here
on the rocks
over the water
I hold your hand

It's a long way down
to the cool deep blue of the water
and the only sound
is the wind
in the leaves
and in the mountains

We leave the ground
with a scream and a leap and a countdown
and the wind rushes up as we're falling
and down and down

For all it's worth
this tiny lake by the river
calls our names

Sliding through
the thin skin of the water
we hold our breath
and then

light opens up our eyes
the darkness in the lake beneath our thrashing feet
swimming to the shore we kiss
another leap of faith
has left us reeling
in its wake.
