about

Legend has it that the mute swan lives its entire life in silence, until delivering one beautiful performance in the moment before its death. We are Lakefield, and these are our Swan Songs.

Track Name: Good Guy
You hold my heart
You’re not to blame
It’s just one of the outcomes of the games we play
You’re not around
To see me ache
I’m lonely but you’re busy with the heart you claimed
I’ll be around
So when you call
There’s someone here to catch you and to break your fall
I’m not the type
To follow through
I’m sorry for this heartache but it’s all for you

All for you

Can’t you see
I’m holding out
And waiting for the day when you will come around
I’m sorry I
Just can’t move on
This heartache will not go ‘way it's just gone all wrong
I’ll be right here
And when you call
You can count on me to hold you and to break your fall

Break your fall
Break your fall

Some day I
Will move along
But only if you tell me that my heart’s been wrong
Until that day
Why should I
Start moving on and wondering if you could’ve been mine

You could’ve been mine
You could’ve been mine

Wondering if you could’ve been mine
I’ll break your fall and make you mine
Track Name: Hand Delivered
You’re lost across the sky
My heart sinks at the sight
Six weeks since you’ve been gone
Hold on to what we’ve got

You’re in my mind
As time floats by

Hand delivered, over, sign, and signature
Post provision in design, this is all I've yearned
Hand delivered, over, sign, and signature
Mailed and lettered, time and flight, you will return

Your plane lifts off the ground
My heart drops at the sound

You’re in my eyes
As time crawls by

Hand delivered, over, sign, and signature
Post provision in design, this is all I've yearned
Hand delivered, over, sign, and signature
Mailed and lettered, time and flight, you will return

You’re gone into the night
My heart sinks at the sight
Track Name: Cupid
Cupid takes another heart down to the underground
He calls your name and lines up the others
He tosses you to the flame

Does that make things change
No, your heart stills feels the same

Cue the music for December
Hearts lost in the rain
Snow falls as we go undercover
We won’t be found ‘til the spring

Does that make things change
No, your heart still feels the same

Oh have you heard
Rumours of those star crossed lovers
Oh have you seen
Their faces in the magazines

Cupid takes another heart down to the underground
He holds you tight and tucks in the covers
He kisses you goodnight
Track Name: Interlude
In my mind I hold your hand
I hold it close to mine and
In my mind you understand that this is love

Want to shout your name from the rooftop
Wanna hold you close and never stop
Want to shout your name from the rooftop
‘Cause this is love
Track Name: Don’t Waste Time
Don’t waste time, we’re running out of days to get you here
Don’t waste time, we’re running out of days now

Haven’t you heard
It’s a long way underneath
Haven’t you seen
We’re the same we’ve ever been
What’s the word
Won’t you tell me something good
What does it mean
I would tell you if I could
Track Name: Your Conviction Is Sweet
One more time
So many years; I can’t take another
We’ll be fine
Over and over still expecting things to change
Come with me
Your conviction is sweet, but I can’t see forward
Soon you’ll see

Hold my hand
But it slips; get a grip; you’re sinking
‘till the end
Can’t keep your head above water anymore

Here we go
You’re on your own from this moment onward
One more show
It’s not the end if you start it up again
Still in sight
Don’t give up before the end of the song
Felt so right
So close to landing in the place where you belong
