DEAR TO YOUR HEART words/music: bill mallonee

Now i loved the land and i loved the sky
And the dreamers who'd pass by my door
i needed those dreams & I needed their dreamin'
and i needed those story they told

pull on your boots...roll up your sleeves
you live out of a place that's on bended knee
step out into the sunshine...and before you depart
kiss all who are dear to your heart
kiss all who are dear to your heart

verses 2 & 3
a world of wonders...since i opened my eyes
writ large in the passing of seasons
and the thieves who speak violence and the preachers of fear
well that all flew in the face of reason
we're blind folks reading the braille of our heart
we're all spies breaking codes everyday
sooner or later it comes down to love
received then given away

verse 4
through all of the haze of our dime-store days
we spend hard on what little remains
But Love is a miner with his eye fixed on you
and there's gold deep inside of your veins


from Future Hymns for the New Idolatry, released January 22, 2016
