Think That You Might Be Wrong by Great Lake Swimmers

I’ve been listening to Great Lake Swimmers here and there over the past few months but it wasn’t until this week that I fully delved into their music. I must say, Tony Dekker (Lead singer and songwriter) has been very prolific over the past decade. The band dabbles in a number of styles ranging from bluegrass to blues, but I would probably describe them as folk rock or alternative.

Their music does seem to maintain a melancholy theme throughout all these styles, and the song Think That You Might Be Wrong is no exception to this.

What time is it?
Would you tell me wolf?
Are you coming around here?
With your teeth so sharp
And I never gave you the best part of me
I just left you in charge for a little while

Must’ve been some
Must’ve been some great fury
That took you so far
Took you so far away

Think that you might be wrong
Think that you might
Think that you might be wrong
Think that you might be wrong
Think that you might
Think that you might be wrong

And look at you now
With your confidence
Riding around on a lion’s back
Mistaking shadow for a stranger’s love
Well, you’re larger than life
When the lighting is right
