Lakeside Landing


Lyrics

"Lakeside Landing"
Words and Music by Scott Cooley.

She landed by the lakeside

Close to home, yet on her own

A next-step from college incomplete

She knew she'd soon be by the seaside

In her parents' country of old

Another move from refusing to compete


She landed by the lakeside

Close to love, yet far away

Another place to hide out and forget

She felt she'd go with the flow of the tide

And let the wind blow her where it may

Another way to get grounded without regret


She sailed, and then she flew

She bailed out on me and you

She ran away to escape the shame

She ran away to escape the pain

She's gone for good, and only memories remain

She's a million miles away


She landed by the lakeside

And though her memories may fade

As the water cools her flame

Another charred path still left behind

From the decisions she never made

All she wanted was another new clean slate, pre-arranged


She sailed, and then she flew

She bailed out on me and you

She ran away to escape the shame

She ran away to escape the pain

She's gone for good, and only memories remain

She's a million miles away


She landed by the lakeside

And there she stayed.

Brief Description

This is sort of a personal story song I didn't think was a keeper at all.  Surprisingly, others thought it was one of my best.  Perhaps it was vague enough to not really sound too personal, and allowed the listener to have their own interpretations, or maybe it's just one where the music is pleasant enough you don't really pay attention to the words anyway, and thus don't really care what it's about.  Regardless, it fired on more cylinders than usual and just worked.
