Eric Andersen – Meadowlark lyrics

Darknes sparkles the edge of dawn
Like a heart that's turned stone cold
The ones I love are dead and gone
And I am growing old
Oh my heart is whispering
Go back north
To the north I truly love
I'd follow the geese but they're heading south
So I'll follow the morning dove

When I get there I'll build a fire
And stare into the flames
For every single spark that flies
I'll remember a loved one's name
When spring surrounds the winter ground
And the ice falls from the nest
And winter sings with a voice of spring
I'll be heading for the west

For I have live and I have died
A thousand of your deaths
I've partaken a thousand times
The sweetness of your breath
I have held you in my eyes
With my hands cupped 'neath your breasts
Shall I follow the meadowlark
And lay me down to rest
And lay me down to rest

I will not follow the meadowlark
I'll follow the morning dove
I'll prove my wings both strong and true
Til I found the one I love
But I shant forsake the meadowlark
She did not forsake me
To the meadowlark godspeed
To the meadowlark godspeed

The eagle got us in the air
The buzzard picked our bones
The meadowlark sang us songs
The morning dove took us home

Darknes sparkles the edge of dawn
Like a heart that's turned stone cold
The ones I love are dead and gone
And I am growing old
Oh my heart is whispering
Go back north
To the north I truly love
I'd follow the geese but they're heading south
So I'll follow the morning dove
I'll follow the morning dove
