michigan lakes
remember we moved a 100 pianos in one day
for some kind of show
my brother was m.i.a.

we met in july
i think we were swimming at the lake when pope paul died
i thought to myslef “you’d make the perfect bride”

if i could make you laugh
if i could make you laugh
if i could make you laugh
if i could make you laugh

would you have stayed when i left?
i can still recall your taste it’s all i kept
that town was such a waste
but you i won’t forget

work was steady enough
when everyone wanted uprights in their basement dens
unfinished houses they were just built right in
my mom and dad
i still think my leaving was the thing that did them in
i came back for the wakes
i never came home again

if i could make you laugh
if i could make you laugh
if i could make you laugh
if i could make you laugh

would you have stayed when i left?
i can still recall your taste it’s all i kept
that town was such a waste
but you i won’t forget
i never could forgot

was it love or just a play
it seems a million years away
sometimes i see you in my sleep
muddy water on your feet
the sun was shining on your hair
i reach your hand but you’re not there
i hope you’re laughing all the time
i hope you still can read my mind

i hope you’re laughing all the time
i hope you’re laughing all the time
all the time
all the time

i think in the spring
i’ll go back and buy one of those pianos learn to play
i’m setting aside a couple of hours a day
