Moonlit Lake

by Benjamin Sanders

I sit here by the moonlit lake
Dreaming of the past
Wondering just how cruel is fate
That our love could never last

I wish I could go back in time
And tell you how I feel
And tell you that my tenderness
And love for you was real

I sit here by the moonlit lake
Beneath our willow tree
Wondering just how cruel is fate
That our love could never be

I wish I had you in my arms
To tell you to believe
That I would always be there
That I would never leave

I sit here by the moonlit lake
Thinking through the years
Wondering just how cruel is fate
That I had caused you tears

I wish that I could have you here
No price I would not pay
Just to have you by my side
If only for a day

So I sit here by the moonlit lake
Dreaming of the past

Wondering just how cruel is fate
That our love could never last
