Echoes of Eternity

lyrics

Verses written in the summer of 2011
Chorus written in the autumn of 2014

I guess I thought we’d have forever
But I never say that now
’Cause you’ve been through all sorts of weather
And made it through somehow.
But we get old and we get tired, and our bodies start to fade
And forever keeps on falling till we just have today.

I believe we will meet again.

When I look up at the sky or over the sea
I will think of you.
Your body renewed, your mind at ease
I hear echoes of eternity.
And the hope that’s holding you is holding me.

Last goodbyes are never easy
You can’t practice letting go
And there’ll be things I wish you could see
Things you’d like to know.
You’ll never see me in my white dress
Or hold my first baby
And today is fading fast into memory.

I believe we will meet again.

When I look up at the sky or over the sea
I will think of you.
Your body renewed, your mind at ease
I hear echoes of eternity.
And the hope that’s holding you is holding me.

When I look up at the sky or over the sea
I will think of you.
Your body renewed, your mind at ease
I hear echoes of eternity.
And the hope that’s holding you is holding me
In God we trust and rest in peace.
