Lying by the lake in August
Rolling in the leaves
Down by the water's edge
Sitting in your mother's garden
Smoking Lebanese
Beneath the privet hedge

And though I thought I caught
The warmth behind your smile
I could've been deceived
But with my tear-washed eyelashes
I should have been believed

And it would be alright now
We have said goodbye
But you didn't even touch my lips
But you didn't even try

We walked across the fields about
You resting in the hay
And making daisy chains
Out along the streams and rivers
Spread across the way
And swelled with recent rain

Stepping home a little sadly
Slipping through the trees
Much slower than we came
Till getting home, I kissed you once
And you just spoke my name

And it would be alright now
We have said goodbye
But you didn't even touch my lips
But you didn't even try
