Personal soundtrack

You Know That
by Bill Mallonee

You’re a treasure no one opened
You’re that diamond no one found
There’s no casual liaison
When your heart is in the clouds
Could have been your bit of style
Could have been your bit of grace
Could have been the way
The starlight played upon your face

Moonlight be a friend tonight
We’re all wrecked up on these dreams
Holding on a bit too tight
I’ve got splinters from these moonbeams
If it seems I’m falling down
If it seems we’re falling through
Darling you know that is nothing
You know that is nothing new

Look at me with longing eyes
And i will always know the score
Say the words i long to hear
And i won’t need them anymore
If this moment seems forever
There are some things you don’t waste
If it’s a little bit of God
Then come in here and have a taste

Moonlight be a friend tonight
We’re all wrecked up on these dreams
Holding on a bit too tight
I’ve got splinters from these moonbeams
If it seems I’m falling down
If it seems we’re falling through
Darling you know that is nothing
You know that is nothing new

You and me could build a bridge
Over every place that hurts
Time to tear the walls down hard
‘Cause they never really worked
And if the first words start to stumble
And sound slightly out of tune
It’s the opening of hearts
It is the closing of the deepest wounds

Moonlight be a friend tonight
We’re all wrecked up on these dreams
Holding on a bit too tight
I’ve got splinters from these moonbeams
If it seems we’re falling down
If it seems we’re falling through
Darling you know that is nothing
You know that is nothing new

  1. That song’s been a piece of my personal soundtrack for a long time. I’m glad to see it’s found its way to you.

    • Yeah, I’ve known the song for a while (VoL were one of my favourite Athens area bands when I was living in Athens), but when it came up on the shuffle last night, it struck me how utterly resonant it was right now.

      *hugs*
