Songs by Meg Tennant

Echoed Light

Music & Lyrics © Meg Tennant

I am the north wind in the pine trees
In the darkest winter freeze
I am running wild and icy
Just as hollow as can be

But you are a sweet breeze in the morning
Warm and steady across the blue
You are wistful, you sail unguarded
To meet the wonder of something new

When love comes out of nowhere
It’s like a promise or a prayer
An echoed light
Reflecting everywhere

I’ve been a bull’s eye for love’s bad arrows
So I’ve learned to carry this heavy shield
And I swore I would pay no attention
To the moonlight at my heels

But when love comes out of nowhere
It is a promise and a prayer
An echoed light
Reflecting everywhere

At the party, in the kitchen
Behind the bottles and the ice
Two rosebuds in a blue vase
I make a wish for us, I make it twice

Because love comes out of nowhere
It is a promise and a prayer
An echoed light
Reflecting everywhere
