Bruce Bondy I can say without reservation that I have never heard a song from Bill Mallonee that I didn't like on some level. I have been a fan of his and Vigilantes of Love since 1994. The only other music I can make that claim about is R.E.M. I am looking forward to album #76, Rags of Absence, and hoping that one day I will listen to #100! What an incredible body of work! I am unable to think of another artist with this amount of quality and quantity in the entire country if not the world!
Thank you Bill, for the hours of meditative listening and blissful imaginings...
Sincerely,
Bruce Bondy

STAR~LIGHT
words & music: b. mallonee

You know i wonder how you got there
'Cause it's more than a mystery
For all those pages that we turned
there's still so little that we see

i tried to watch your every gesture
to see if they'd reveal a plot
I tried to see if that smile you smiled
was the real one or not

it's a world just like a house of cards
and our fault lines are hard to detect
in a world full of simple, wide-eyed souls
there is so much to protect

Chorus:
so, if starlight is your gift
let it shine all through the night
for the storm-tossed
who have no land in sight

so, if starlight is your special gift
let it be special night
for the drowning
who have no land in sight
