"It was the first time we ever played in Illinois, yet the 50-60 kids there were singing along to our tunes like they’d been fans all their lives." -A Day To Remember

Oh, you beautiful Murray
How I love your cold water
And the houses that live beside you
Your wonderful waves
And the way my mom's speed boat cuts into you
Like slippery steady glass
Oh, how I love hot summer days
When I come and visit you
And swim on your surface
Looking like I'm dancing with you
I turn red when I'm above you
And I peel for weeks upon our encounter
Oh, how I love you, you amazing lake
And the way you look in the late afternoon
With the sun setting
And shining reflections on your surface
Oh, how I love you, you gorgeous lake
With your great weather
Knowing, in a few weeks
I'll be back for our next date
