Artist's Notes

A song about the memories of a long lost love as a man nears the end of his life. A bittersweet memory and consideration of a mystery never to be solved ...


Lyrics

Melinda

I?ve lived on this land all my life

Surrounded by these hills

Now I see my setting sun

And your memory?s with me still

In this dusk I realize

My soul is in this place

Once you were a part of that

I still can see your face

We grew up together

Ranging side by side

But wanderlust took you

The west wind was your guide

I loved the hills and valleys

of our happy home

You chose the mysteries of the world

Left to forever roam

 

Chorus:

It?s dusk now

A warm wind is blowing

I still see your long hair flowing

Dark like a raven?s wing

Me - lin -  da ?.

With your dreaming eyes so true

Your spirit drew me to you

Then away you flew

 

Evening times we?d stride together

Climbing hills so green

Rocky summit views

Beautiful and clean

Breeze blowing through your hair

Never have I seen

Anything so fair

Or moments so serene 

 

I was sad

The day you left

But I thought you would return

I never saw your face again

Tho? many years I yearned

Now I?ve reached the point

Where old memories are so clear

For the first time in a long time 

Your spirit feels so near

Melinda, Melinda, it?s your face I see

Melinda, Melinda,  why did you leave ...?

 

Chorus:

It?s dusk now

A warm wind is blowing

I still see your long hair flowing

Dark like a raven?s wing

Me - lin  - da ?.

With your dreaming eyes so true

Your spirit drew me to you

Then away you flew

Me - lin  - da ?.

With your dreaming eyes so true

Your spirit drew me to you

Then away you flew
