UPDATE: @sammiall brought lovely music to my lyrics! Thank you!

We are vacationing - staying at a loving lakefront cabin on Lake Michigan in Door County, WI. Door County is a magical place - a peninsula with gorgeous shoreline, rocky bluffs and sugar sand beaches, forests with miles of trails, apple and cherry orchards, quaint albeit tourist filled villages, art galleries, farm markets, and music. Door county was one of the first places my wife and I vacationed together over 30 years ago and that we visit every few years, always staying somewhere different. . And yeah, over time things change, but not like the lyrics in this song .. :)

Lyrics

at Killasonna Lodge

V1
at Killasonna Lodge
Lake Michigan winds
near tall limestone bluffs
will remind us again
of love we were in
a long time ago

oh where...
where did our
love go?

C1
will we ever know?
will we ever know?
where did our
love go?

oh will we ever know?
where did love go…
go so low…..?

V2
at Killasonna Lodge
Lake Michigan waves
by Red Pine shaded trails
still carry us away
to love of past days
way back in time

oh why…
why did that
love die?

C2
do you wonder why?
do you wonder why?
why did that
love die?

oh do you wonder why?
why did love die…
die in time…?

V3
at Killasonna Lodge
Lake Michigan blues
with gray cloud horizons
are giving us new clues
of our love’s truths
why we’re afraid

oh when…
when will this
love fade?

C3
do you think of when?
do you think of when?
when will this
love fade…

oh do you think of when?
when will love fade…
fade away…?

A good mix of personal details (what happened at Killasonna Lodge) and the universal (our doubts about how long love will last). Fine "musication" by Sammial

sounds like a magical place!

@kahlo2013 If you would add the file in, that would be fabulous - mine are added as Google drive docs, & I am not crazy about the warning making them look dangerous.
And thank you so much for being accepting of my interpretation!

(Not sure if I am pronouncing the name right...I have only been to Michigan once, & my experience is limited to Detroit...not a lot like the flavor of beautiful you describe here!)

Every year I look forward to your songs about your wonderful travels, and of course I want to visit there and I love these vivid lyrics!

I just did a very quick "record & free play" with these lyrics, on a melancholy uke. Scripting that out now, to see what it turns into, then I will see if I can figure out how to send it your way to see what you think!
