The Meadow Song
words and music by Bill Pere

Now I'm staring at the one I love
Afraid to blink so I don't miss a moment of
How you're smiling in the setting sun
You make each moment feel like a new love's begun
And we're standing on this meadow hill
Listening to the distant call of whippoorwills

There's a new moon peeking out from the horizon there
The smell of new-mown meadow grass fills the air tonight

Now I'm lying with the one I love
Afraid to let you go and miss a moment of
How my heart feels when you're next to me
Watching fireflies in phosphorescent symphony

There's a new moon peeking out from the horizon there
The smell of new-mown meadow grass fills the air tonight

Now I'm dreaming of the one I love
Afraid to wake so I don't a moment of
How the starlight lingers in your eye
Making halos in your hair as shooting stars go by

There's a new moon peeking out from the horizon there
The smell of new-mown meadow grass fills the air tonight
