Lake Skaneateles

from by The Milk Carton Kids




hush'd now august
heat in the air
we’re free and now clear

the Russian's upon us
to greet without care
our innocence

on the side of the road
a dandelion mine
explodes in a cheer

Lake Skaneateles
deep in the heart
of the echoes I hear

and it's you
only you
who takes my breath away

be still Puget Sound
the mountains are out
the wave is in your hair

i've abandoned my pride
cast off with a sigh
and hardly a care

i can dance all alone
to the hush of this song
and swoon unaware

for my silence is yours
my breath is a fort
and i'm holding it there

but it's you, only you, who takes my breath away
only you who takes my breath away
