Liner Notes: 

I started to write a song about a place I love thinking that I love being there so much and it feels so right and beautiful when I am there... but that I can’t stay there and have to say good bye and trust that I will be able to go back again - it will never be exactly the same but it will always be beautiful ... and then that made me think about old lovers who will always hold special places in my heart and although we had to say good bye and are not together often, when we are together it is wonderful and I hope it will always be so

Lyrics: 

Wondrous Places

V1
the shore of the great lake
where my soul has been fed
with rugged cliffs that rise
majestic overhead
the richly painted rocks in
hues of golds and reds
hold tall birch and lush ferns
that warm the forest bed

PC1
that is where my mind travels
travels again and again

C
wondrous places
around this great big world
call to us
with seductive allure
and of all the places
I’ve ever been
one of the most beautiful
was the love...
love we were in

V2
the breadth of your love
where my heart has been led
with smiling eyes that brought
such wonder to my head
the kindly worded thoughts in
sweet things you have said
held the treasures and truth
that made beauty spread

PC2
that is where my heart travels
travels again and again

C
wondrous places
around this great big world
call to us
with seductive allure
and of all the places
I’ve ever been
one of the most beautiful
was the love...
love we were in

B
I have longed to know the
wonders of your life
I have longed to show you
special things in mine
I have hoped to grow what
we share more in time
but for now I’ll let go and
will say good-bye...

PC/OUTRO
that is where my heart will travel
travel again and again

(Optional repeat chorus)

Where'd my comment go? Strange. Anyhow, this is one of my favorites! Birch, fern, love. Fabulous

I like the way the verse suggests you're listening to a travelogue/beautiful planet song and then the chorus subverts that by comparing it to being in love rather than being in a place. Nice writing.

Such great imagery in this. I like the life you give the "wondrous places" and the idea of a heart traveling...again and again. Love these lines: sweet things you have said/held the treasures and truth/that made beauty spread. And I like how it's all connected to love. Beautiful!

This is great, Liz. I think it's a wonderful thing when special places bring back memories of another time in your life that was shared with someone you loved. Even when you return to those places in the future, a piece of the past will always be there.

I enjoy the association of a loved place and a loved person. So often the two really d goo hand in hand, don't they?

Oh, this is nice. May I try to add music to it? (Unless someone else has already done)
