"She Took Him To The Lake" as written by and Matt Skiba Glenn Porter....
Do you remember the story of the boy and his first date?
She took him to the lake and he fell in love.
She spent one summer waking up between his arms.
She told him how good that felt, told him he was the one.

And then she went away, his calls were not returned.
He went to see her but her eyes were burning a different stare.
The focus was somewhere else.
And that feeling had somehow disappeared.

Do you remember when they both drove out of state?
Stealing kisses behind her cousins back,
With a love so strong tell me who could wait
When it seems so right and it feels so right, man, it had to be right.
When it seems so right and it feels so right, man, it had to be right.
Gotta be right

When it seems so right and it feels so right, man, it had to be right.
But then she went away and she's not coming back
And I'm pretty sure that boy is staying in tonight.

    General Commentthis one of my favorite alk3 songs, it's just so straightforward. not much of a chorus, it just gives you the story, in it's purest form. and dan's singing in this song is just so laid back, the delivery is flawless. one of my good friends is dating this girl, and she is taking him to her lake house this summer, and her cousin is taking them. i didn't mention this song, i just thought it was eeire. i hope she doesn't fuck him OVER.
