Friday Songs for You 8/31: Iron & Wine, “Call It Dreaming”

One of the best songs from last year and one of the best lyrics ever:

“Where the sun isn’t only sinkin’ fast
Every night knows how long it’s supposed to last
Where the time of our lives is all we have
And we get a chance to say, before we ease away
For all the love you’ve left behind
You can have mine”

 

Iron & Wine “Call it Dreaming”

[Verse 1]
Say it’s here where our pieces fall in place
Any rain softly kisses us on the face
Any wind means we’re runnin’
We can sleep and see ’em comin’
Where we drift and call it dreamin’
We can weep and call it singing

[Verse 2]
Where we break when our hearts are strong enough
We can bow ’cause our music’s warmer than blood
Where we see enough to follow
We can hear when we are hollow
Where we keep the light we’re given
We can lose and call it livin’

[Chorus 1]
Where the sun isn’t only sinkin’ fast
Every night knows how long it’s supposed to last
Where the time of our lives is all we have
And we get a chance to say, before we ease away
For all the love you’ve left behind
You can have mine

[Verse 3]
Say it’s here where our pieces fall in place
We can fear ’cause the feelin’s fine to betray
Where our water isn’t hidden
We can burn and be forgiven
Where our hands hurt from healin’
We can laugh without a reason

[Chorus 2]
‘Cause the sun isn’t only sinkin’ fast
Every moon and our bodies make shining glass
Where the time of our lives is all we have
And we get a chance to say, before we ease away
For all the love you’ve left behind
You can have mine
