lyrics

Love Is © Peggy van Zalm

She said if happiness came streaming through her door today
She wondered if she could get away
from her wounded past
She said love is, love is, love is a restless ghost tonight
and its howlin all around these ramshackle places

When you walk past her house you can hear the echoes of her emptiness
In the stillness she never can rest
then the song ooh the song of the bird of her heart
the lilting sadness of a distant distant past
misty love, misty light
I swear I saw two figures in the shadowy light

love is, love is, love is restless ghost
ooh and it's howlin..oohh
hey yeah

Well I wonder who it is she's searchin for
Wonder if she'd want him now- if he walked through that door
it's been so long, its been so long
Well I wonder who it is she's searchin for
Wonder if she'd want him now if he walked through that door
its been so long
misty love misty light I swear I saw two figures...

Well one day, she travelled back, back to the house where'd lived
and wandered through the rooms where all the memories slept
then she lit a match and watched the flames
nothing, nothing, nothing to lose so she gave it all up

misty love misty light I swear I saw two figures in that smoky light
