There's a yellow tree that no one sees
Where the water meets the land
The grass grows tall and the shadows fall
The blades cast a ghostly dance
The banks are stained with blood and rain
Where the water meets the land
A secret there they'll never share, a code of silence
And you will never see what's been hiding
Where the water meets the land
Until a careful wind begins to lift
Each grain of dust and sand.

Chandelier Lake is a mysterious place
And the ghost of a woman who sleeps beneath the waves.
Chandelier Lake is a mysterious place
And she's the only one who knows its name.

A little fox gone wandering
Where the water meets the land
Tired, lost, and hungry,
She sees diamonds against the plants
So she sat down by what she's found
Where the water meets the land
And there exposed was clothes and bones
And a ring on a lifeless hand
Then the trees and the wind they hold their breath
All feigning ignorance
And no one will ever remember it
Because they are made to forget

Chandelier Lake is a mysterious place
And the ghost of a woman who sleeps beneath its waves
Chandelier Lake is a mysterious place
And she's the only one who knows her grave
