She Took Him to The Lake - Alkaline Trio

Do you remember the story of the boy and his first date?
She took him to the lake and he fell in love
She spent one summer waking up between his arms
She told him how good that felt, told him he was the one

And then she went away, his calls were not returned
He went to see her
but her eyes were burning a different stare
The focus was somewhere else
And that feeling had somehow disappeared

Do you remember when they both drove out of state?
Stealing kisses behind her cousins back,
with a love so strong tell me who could wait
When it seems so right and it feels so right
Man, it had to be right
When it seems so right and it feels so right
Man, it had to be right
gotta be right

When it seems so right and it feels so right
Man, it had to be right
But then she went away and she's not coming back
and I'm pretty sure that boy is staying in tonight
