lyrics

I’d like to plant you
Cattails in the shallows
Redwing blackbirds build
Their nests in tomorrow
Great blue heron lifts
From trees dried of marrow
Through the reeds we’ll drift
Our eyes to the swallows

And we’ll grow
And we’ll grow
And we’ll grow
Ourselves in the hollows

I’d like to swamp you out
Of memory’s sorrow
Dragonflies in love
On currents they borrow
Calls among the stalks
The lark in the meadow
Light the dreams they hide
From out of the shadows

And we’ll grow
And we’ll grow
And we’ll grow
Ourselves in the hollows

And we’ll grow
And we’ll grow
And we’ll grow
Ourselves in the hollows

about

Avifauna Denver, Colorado

Avifauna’s sound is an Electro-Folk blend of atmospherics and hypnotic
rhythms and harmonies, all centered around singer-songwriter Meagen
Svendsen’s dusky voice and brute lyrical narratives.
Svendsen’s lyrics draw on her life as an inveterate world traveler and nature
enthusiast. She weaves
narratives of intense emotion into a topical regard for the future of our planet.
