Mourning Dove

by Michael Coleman, Irish Patty

Genre: Americana/Country

Lyrics

Just outside my window Just outside the day
I hear the mourning dove Yet she never stays
I hear her restless call Singing in the breeze
Looking for a new love She sings a song for me
The mourning dove she finds me When the day is young
When the night sky fades and when the moon is gone
Mourning dove she comes to me With a songbird?s cry
The song that she is singing is Both hello and goodbye
She sings for the days gone by For the joy that she knew
Her call echoes at the dawn Reminding me of you
She knows that love will never die Though it may fly away
But the mourning dove lives on To sing another day
INSTRUMENTAL
But the mourning dove lives on to sing another day
INSTRUMENTAL
Three long years in winter – summer – fall – and spring
Mourning dove she found me With a prayer on her wing
Seems she has lost her way She sings so far from home
One thing she knows for sure She does not sing alone
She sings for the days gone by For the joy that she knew
Her call echoes at the dawn Reminding me of you
She knows that love will never die Though it may fly away
But the mourning dove lives on To sing another day
But the mourning dove lives on To sing another day
But the mourning dove lives on To sing another day
Looking for another love to follow her away
Looking for another love to follow her away
Looking for another love to follow her away
