Handsome Family, The - Forgotten Lake Lyrics




Come with me to the forgotten lake
Where covered wagons and the wings of missing planes
Float between black fish underneath the velvet waves

Strange lights fly across the rocky beach
Girls in white nightgowns wander barefoot in their sleep
And the vapors of dreams winding circles 'round their feet

Down, down
Float them down
Let the waters float them down
To where they'll remember everything

Golden flash at the corner of your eye
Though shadows that climb your darkened walls at night
They open a door lit with forgotten light

In dark water the gray veil falls away
We'll see with closed eyes and drift softly in the rain
Like dragonflies in love, we'll dance across the silver waves

Down, down
Float us down
Let the waters float us down
To where we'll remember everything

    They look like a crazed fundamentalist preacher and his smiling but deadly wife. Why does that not surprise me?

  7. Eeko Warrior

    Great photos of the mighty HFs, most of which hadn't previously seen. Looking forward to next encounter in the UK in 2017. Forgotten what a beautiful song this is too, so double thanks for posting.

  9. Gabriela Farias

    Come with me to the forgotten lake
    Where covered wagons and the wings of missing planes
    Float between black fish underneath the velvet waves

    Strange lights fly across the rocky beach
    Girls in white nightgowns wander barefoot in their sleep
    And the vapors of dreams winding circles 'round their feet

    Down, down
    Float them down
    Let the waters float them down
    To where they'll remember everything

    Golden flash at the corner of your eye
    Though shadows that climb your darkened walls at night
    They open a door lit with forgotten light

    In dark water the gray veil falls away
    We'll see with closed eyes and drift softly in the rain
    Like dragonflies in love, we'll dance across the silver waves

    Down, down
    Float us down
    Let the waters float us down
    To where we'll remember everything
