The Green Pajamas

Hidden Lake

She said follow, I said I would And I drove as far as I could But there are things in the woods Around Hidden Lake She turned off Highway 4 I couldnít see her anymore They found her washed up on the shore Of Hidden Lake Thirteen miles down a crooked road Thereís a place where day donít break And the thick green water is dark and cold In Hidden Lake Mr. Hoskins tried to smoke The evil from the trees But he learned the trees donít burn Theyíre too diseased Seven have died in as many years And thereís probably seven more Heaven knows thereís a lot of ghosts Walk the lake floor Thirteen miles down a crooked road Thereís a place where day donít break And the thick green water is dark and cold In Hidden Lake And the rain pours down from a sky so gray I donít know if Iím waking up to night or day But it doesnít matter anyway Sheís gone... She's gone... She's gone At night I dream of Katie And her big green eyes Thereís a little marker about a quarter mile As the crow flies I donít know why she turned down that road Maybe something called The lake has a hunger thatíll pull you under Maybe thatís all Thirteen miles down a crooked road Thereís a place where day donít break And the thick green water is dark and cold In Hidden Lake _______________________ by Jeff Kelly (c) 2006 St. Brigid Publishing BMI
