Trying to forget while learning to surf on frigid Lake Ontario.

lyrics

The Great Lakes Surfer

The loneliness of the great lakes surfer
Learning to catch a wave on a cold grey day
Hopes the cold water helps him to forget her
Gliding into the beach on Ashbridges Bay

The loneliness of the great lakes surfer
Pretending that he’s not the only one
Lying on the lake in early October
Northern boy searching for some southern fun

He sits and waits so patiently
Looks for a wave that breaks perfectly

The loneliness of the great lakes surfer
Daydreaming that he’s safe and warm
Determined that he’s going to ride a little further
Paddling out to the edge of a storm

He sits and waits so patiently
Waits for a wave that breaks him free

The loneliness of the great lakes surfer
A girl watches from the boardwalk and wonders why
Why he’s working so hard to impress her
Chasing dirty brown waves under cloudy skies
