  • Truth lives next to consequence
    It comes and goes like winter wind
    Blowing 'cross the straits one night
    Cold as death and real as sin

    And I loved her and she loved me
    Bound for what was meant to be
    But trouble travels silently

    There's a girl in Michigan
    Up in Lake Superior
    Who'll never bother us again
    Making our lives easier
    With alibis so paper thin
    Now that she is over me
    And over you
    And overboard

    Guide me toward that lonely light
    It's your beacon in the night
    And I'll row us straight back to that shore
    With frozen hands and muscles sore
    And my back against your back
    We glide along the water black
    Both knowing there's no turning back

    There's a girl in Michigan
    Up in Lake Superior
    Who'll never bother us again
    Making our lives easier
    With alibis so paper thin
    Now that she is out of sight and out of mind
    And overboard

    She was never gonna let us go
    Had a hold on me and a curse on you
    As she lay there, pale upon that shore
    With her eyes gone black, they once were blue
    She could see me for the first time

    Now there's a girl in Michigan
    Who's overboard

    Truth moved on from consequence
    And just when things were making sense
    Her body washed back onto shore
    Discovered by a neighbor boy
    And now she's in our lives again
    The three of us in shadows
