You would sit by yourself at the end of the day
Watching spectral dusk settle in on Mazinaw Lake
And the water turns to glass
And the moon hangs on the bay
And the smoke from your pipe's drifting up and away

There's a hole in the fence where the property ends
And I'd like to think that you're living up there
In that place on the bend, where the river flows slow
And your strength it comes back to you when you're breathing in air

Oh, please come back to me
I need you if I'm to be a man
Oh, I'm not doing that well
That is just what I tell me friends

You would sit all day long because you could not stand
The thought of going out like that
You had a depth in your eyes that I won't understand
'Til death's at my door, and I'm a family man


Oh, please come back to me
I need you if I'm to be a man
Oh, I'm not doing that well
That is just what I tell me friends

I find peace, here and there, when silent snows are falling
Like that calm before the water boils, and the kettle comes a' calling.
