Do you remember when we would play?
Like we were pirates on the lake
The ruthless scourges of the sea
And it was perfect, just you and me

But oh
We knew it had to end
And we couldn’t see just ‘round that bend
Oh you
You never came back
Back to me
Back to playing pirates on the sea

I wish for simpler days
Back to when all my bills were paid
When happy sunshine was enough
And I didn’t have to act so tough

But oh
I knew it had to end
And I couldn’t see just ‘round that bend
Oh
I can never go back
Back to you
Back to playing pirates on the sea

This feeling’s taking over me
So I sit back and rest my eyes
Dreaming of you and the day
That we played pirates on the lake
