Spender – Lake Lyrics

I couldn’t have been more than 7 years old
Mama had a boyfriend and left me cold.
He used to teach me about being a boy
Said “I’m the man, go play with your toys!”
I used to hear them make love in the morning,
It would scare me so much I’d take it as a warning,
And then my mama come and look at me
And say “How’s my boy doing without me?”

CHORUS:
The thief was swimming in the lake, at night
And all I could see was his torch light
Mama’s heart, I knew that he would break
And I wished that light would fade into the
Lake.

He knew how to bake his own bread
He grew a lot of dope in the back shed
He knew how to make mamma cry
He knew how to tell her the perfect lie
I remember the day he drove home in our car
With a bullet hole straight through the door
He pointed at the hole with his broken hands
He said “You’re lucky, boy, that you ain’t no man”.

CHORUS:
The thief was swimming in the lake, at night
And all I could see was his torch light
Mama’s heart, I knew that he would break
And I wished that light would fade into the
Lake.

Looking back on my 8th birthday
I watched my mama walk away
With a broken rib, only half awake
I remember the wish as I blew out the cake
And taught me a gift that I still own
Of a love that can cut you down to the bone
When a man and a woman just won’t let go
Why did you leave when I needed you so?

CHORUS:
The thief was swimming in the lake, at night
And all I could see was his torch light
Mama’s heart, I knew that he would break
And I wished that light would fade into the
Lake.

CHORUS:
The thief was swimming in the lake, at night
And all I could see was his torch light
Mama’s heart, I knew that he would break
And I wished that light would fade into the
