lyrics

If she falls

In a laugh we capture
The wings of the moment
Touch hands then cartwheel and fly
All her sunbeams and sonnets
Her calico bonnets
Girl of the raven blue hair

Dancer at the window pane
Oh she’s gone again

If she falls I will catch her
For nothing else matters
It’s a gift of love for today

I will carve her name
On some wayside stone
Which shall stand as the time drifts away
We shall embark on ships
Burn any bridges
Speak tongues that we always have known

Dancer at the window pane
Oh she’s gone again

If she falls I will catch her
For nothing else matters
It’s a gift of love for today

For nothing else matters
For nothing else matters
For nothing else matters today

Fiddles: Anthony Johnson. Guitar & Vocals: Henry Sparks.
Bass: Julie Walkington.
