Bill Mallonee – Autumn Graces


 

Autumn Graces             Words/music: bill mallonee

Autumn’s a riot all burnished and golden
and the secrets on the woodsmoke, she won’t let you hold ‘em
Stain of grief and a slow fiddle tune
branches caress a harvest moon

and me I feel small but it’s really ok
I will move your darkness away
how ‘bout you, babe?

Count up wins and count up your losses
bury ‘em deep at Jesus’ cross
I dunno how it works barely know what it meant
but love is a light and you learn how to shine it

and don’t we feel small but it’s really ok
I will move your darkness away
how ‘bout you, babe?

Enough of the rhetoric enough of endless wars
beat your swords into plowshares once more
Love on your neighbors and love on your kids
so much so they won’t know what to do with it

Could I have this dance? I’m not good on my feet
but i know the steps of your heart
And a new world is born, and a new world is born 
every time we make a new start
 
Bill Mallonee live in concert at the Sky Bar in Somerville, MA. Previously released to fans only on DVD in 2005 with the Friendly Fire CD.
