about

Long before I ever saw the Pacific or Atlantic oceans, there was Lake Michigan. The third-largest lake in the world sat just a few blocks away from the house I grew up in; it was my backyard, and it’s been a constant presence in my life. I built forts in its overlooks as a kid, cruised its shoreline as a teenager, fished it from piers and jetties, and swam in its numbing waters at North Beach.

I was incredibly lucky to have my friend Andrea Zonn (the pride of neighboring Illinois) play violin and sing with me on this song.

lyrics

Ferry lights are fading in the distance
A quiet settles on the lake
Listening for secrets by the shoreline
Underneath the stars of Hika Bay

There’s a moon, tonight, over Michigan
And the light dances on her waves
Look to the east and make a wish again
Wisconsin, I will stay

Why I ever left, I can’t remember
So many years have gone around the bend
Let’s sing a song of new beginnings
It’s so good to see you, my old friend

There’s a moon, tonight, over Michigan
And the light dances on her waves
Look to the east and make a wish again
Wisconsin, I will stay

It’s in the trees up in the Northwoods
It’s in the waters flowing through the Dells
Standing in this spot of moonlight
I’m completely underneath your spell

There’s a moon, tonight, over Michigan
And the light dances on her waves
Look to the east and make a wish again
Wisconsin, I will stay
Wisconsin, I will stay
