‘The Lake’ started out as a poem written by me in the 1980’s. It was developed into a song in the 1990’s, but didn’t have enough lyrics to carry a full song. Last year I added lyrics to it and finally completed it. On the surface (pun intended) it is about my favourite lake on Wollaton Park in Nottingham. However, the lake is really a metaphor for a darkness in the human spirit. What do you think that darkness is? Listen to my song and let me know what your interpretation is.
