Iron & Wine - Bitter Truth Lyrics




Our missing pieces walk between us
When we were moving through the door
You called 'em mine, I called 'em yours
You make me get so angry
And I'd stay there on my own
We both make peace but all alone

Some call it talking blues (talking blues)
Some call it bitter truth
Some call it getting even in a song

I can't read it, didn't mean it
As you would rage how I was wrong
Life is too short, and you'd stay too long
Let's be honest, we were strongest till I let you drag me down
I was sorry then, I'm not now

Some get a golden heart
Some get a riverside
Some get a house that lets the years go by

That life is ending, you seem contented
While the graveside flowers die
I call 'em yours, you call 'em mine
Nothing makes silence like experience
There's a message in my eyes
You'd better love yourself, 'cause I tried

Some call it talking blues (talking blues)
Some call it bitter truth
Some call it getting even in a song

    Our missing pieces walk between us
    When we were moving through the door
    You called 'em mine, I called 'em yours
    You make me get so angry
    And I'd stay there on my own
    We both make peace but all alone
    Some call it talking blues (talking blues)
    Some call it bitter truth
    Some call it getting even in a song
    I can't read it, didn't mean it
    As you would rage how I was wrong
    Life is too short, and you'd stay too long
    Let's be honest, we were strongest till I let you drag me down
    I was sorry then, I'm not now
    Some get a golden heart
    Some get a riverside
    Some get a house that lets the years go by
    That life is ending, you seem contented
    While the graveside flowers die
    I call 'em yours, you call 'em mine
    Nothing makes silence like experience
    There's a message in my eyes
    You'd better love yourself, 'cause I tried
    Some call it talking blues (talking blues)
    Some call it bitter truth
    Some call it getting even in a song

    Hiçbir zaman Haberin olmayacak ama bu bizim dans şarkımız... hep bunu düşlerken buluyorum kendimi beraber yemyeşil bir bahçede dans ediyoruz. Benim üzerimde sade beyaz bir gelinlik senin üzerinde kırışılmaya hazır sade bir takım üzerinde ki o beyaz gömlekle çok güzelsin. Silik gülümseyişlerin belki de bu kadar hayal kurmamalıyım fakat bunun beni ne kadar mesud ettiğini bilemezsin. Düşlerimde hep bana gülümsemeni istiyorum.

  12. Michael Noone

    I heard this on WFUV and just had to hear it over and over again. Its the sirt if song you might hear in your car driving somewhere, and you stay in the car until its over. And then a few minutes more after that.

    Michael Noone FUV is the best man, learned so many good tunes there

    "I was sorry then - I'm not now." ain't that the truth sometimes - when you reflect back and realize you were sorry for shit that wasn't even yours to be sorry for - some people are just really good at making you feel guilty for their own crap. I guess I had to learn this twice in a lifetime for it to sink in - paying better attention to life's bitter details. Great lyrics, great music, great singing -
