Thank God for the Fall
It’s that time of the year when the air gets crisp, the leaves start to turn, and football is back. Of course everyone loves summer for all of its warm weather and long days of sunlight, but to me there’s nothing better than hoodies, flannels, jeans, and everything fall has to offer.
The Steel Woods take the idea of autumn coming and uses its imagery to describe the joys of new relationships despite knowing they may not last. “Guess I’m better in the fall, when all is new, I won’t blame myself for not loving you,” singer Wes Bayliss belts out as he begins to describe his preference for the ‘fall’ while also acknowledging, “I miss the flame we shared in the spring… how could I forget.” In the end he can’t help but feel good about a previous love dying due to the newer prospects that arrive.
Off of the Straw In The Wind album, Better in the Fall is the beautiful rocker of a song that everyone should have on repeat as we all venture into the year’s greatest season.
