You came into their lives
Beneath the mid-October moon
Broke the water then the silence
Lifted from the room
As you took your first breath of life and let it go
They kept holding you tight like precious cargo

You fell into their arms
From a very far off place
A million miles away from
That military base
Where your father trained his soldiers for the war
You found a warm heart along those Cold Lake shores

And with that heart I was entrusted
Like a message it was passed
To this empty handed sailor
They had given up their secret treasure map

So, take good care of her
I let those words wander astray
Until they sank down to the bottom
Like a buried treasure lay
Now underneath those Cold Lake waters shines a glow
Once my love, now the keeper of this precious cargo
This precious cargo

Beneath those Cold Lake Waters
