lake of silver bells lyrics – carbon leaf

float from the balcony
we ride the pine top swells
down from the old hotel
on the lake of silver bells
leading is lonely
when you’re dancing through derisions
so much left for giving
in the year of the living dangerously happy
on the lake of silver bells

light flickers by
a hundred suns hehind the trees
melts us in a lullaby
our eyelids are like movie screens
and we close our eyes
and feel the warmth come into frame
we close our eyes
until our dreamsbecome one and the same
so much left for giving
in the year of living dangerously happy
on the lake of silver bells

we dance across till we drop
the bells keep time and never stop
we sleep and we wake
to m*ffled chimes out on the lake
we dance across till we drop
the bells keep time and never stop
we sleep and we wake
on the lake of silver bells

w’ve reached a secret place
to rest and reconcile
we close our eyes
the only change is no change for a while
we’ll buy the old hotel
and we will make this place our own
and fill each room with sons and daughters
and never be alone

[chorus]

looking p*ssed the love you face
you miss the place you never had
but what you need’s not just the dream
but somethings on the other end
wake up. wake up. wake up.
you’re much too fast asleep
