Look for me another day.
I feel that I could change,
I feel that I could change.
There's a sudden joy that's like
a fish, a moving light;
I thought I saw it
rowing on the lakes of Canada

Oh laughing man, what have you won?
Don't tell me what cannot be done.
My little mouth, my winter lungs,
don't tell me what can't be done.

Walking in the circle of a flashlight
someone starts to sing, to join in.
Talk of loneliness in quiet voices.
I am shy but you can reach me.
Rowing on the lakes of Canada,
rowing on the lakes of Canada.

Oh laughing man, what have you won?
Don't tell me what cannot be done.
My little mouth, my winter lungs,
don't tell me what can't be done.

Look for me another time
Give me another day
I feel that I could change

Rowing on the lakes of Canada

    General Commenti first heard of this song through the Sufjan Stevens cover ( although i did not know then). I thought it was amazing, 'cause everything that man does is amazing. And it is good.

    I found out today that it was cover, so i looked it up and to my surprise
    SOOOOO GOOOOOD!

    Karens voice is godly.
    I'm glad i actually looked the up, 'cause they are quickly rising to my favorite artists (i only found them this morning too! :o).
