Iron & Wine - Minor Piano Keys Lyrics




Say, say somethin' nice to her, fragrant and sturdier
Delicate hands for shoulders sliding down
Days, days like a summer rain, blink and they’re gone again
Soakin' she sits alone, outside and down

Prays, prays for her soldier boy, in fire and angry noise
Under the thumb of the Lord
And waits, quiltin' and quietly, her minor piano keys
Slip through the screen on the door

Say, say what you mean to her, washing her colander
Eyes on the stranger cresting around the bend
Days, days like the winter snow, linger 'til heaven knows
Naked, she sings the table grace and then

Prays, prays for her soldier boy, in fire and angry noise
Under the thumb of the Lord
And waits, quiltin' and quietly, her minor piano keys
Slip through the screen on the door

    [Verse 1]
    Say, say somethin' nice to her, fragrant and sturdier
    Delicate hands for shoulders sliding down
    Days, days like a summer rain, blink and they’re gone again
    Soakin' she sits alone, outside and down

    [Chorus]
    Prays, prays for her soldier boy, in fire and angry noise
    Under the thumb of the Lord
    And waits, quiltin' and quietly, her minor piano keys
    Slip through the screen on the door

    [Verse 2]
    Say, say what you mean to her, washing her colander
    Eyes on the stranger cresting around the bend
    Days, days like the winter snow, linger 'til heaven knows
    Naked, she sings the table grace and then

    [Chorus]
    Prays, prays for her soldier boy, in fire and angry noise
    Under the thumb of the Lord
    And waits, quiltin' and quietly, her minor piano keys
    Slip through the screen on the door
