lyrics

We walked the old pier in Sault Ste Marie,
Long after we first met
Long after the first dream
We walked you dropped a coin in a well
Whispering what, what was it I wanted here?

Your family stories: your mother marked time,
Your father he painted the carousel horses
I was a watercolor, you were the stream
All the rain in my coat, the stars in their courses

I am peeling back the husk I was wrapped in
It is taking me years
But in time I’ll stand here before you
With no shame, and no fear
And say what was it I wanted
What was it I wanted here?

Out on the old pier in Sault Ste Marie,
You wore binoculars
What did you want to see?
I was fishing nearby, you had no idea
With all the play in my lines
I fashioned a memory
