Iron & Wine - Sailor To Siren Lyrics




This tenderness comes as a surprise
Drinking where the riverbed was dry
Trees in the wind trembling with love

That morning light drew you out the door
Mama didn't need you anymore
She pointed in night but you saw the stars
Brace yourself and nestle into me
Bear it all like falling autumn leaves
You don't even know me that well

Now every blossom's ready to explode
Rooted in the cracks along the road
The world is a dream that we could freeze
While distant water shows me where to run
Papa let me know I'm not enough
Took out the life left me the hope
You sailor or the siren in the tide
Trust the tiny ocean and besides
You don't even know me that well

Your song is warm and coming through the wall
Hearts are only strangers after all
You don't even know me that well

    This tenderness comes as a surprise
    Drinking where the riverbed was dry
    Trees in the wind trembling with love

    Mad morning light drew you out the door
    Mama didn't need you anymore
    She pointed at night but you saw the stars

    Brace yourself and nestle into me
    Bear it all like fallen autumn leaves
    You don't even know me that well

    Now every blossom's ready to explode
    Rooted in the cracks along the road
    The world is a dream that wiggled free

    Wild distant water showed me where to run
    Papa let me know I'm not enough
    He took out the life and left me the hole

    Are you the sailor or the siren in the tide
    Trusts a tiny ocean and besides
    You don't even know me that well

    Your song is warm and coming through the wall
    Hearts are thrown to strangers after all
    You don't even know me that well

    Amazing.

  6. Paul Cox

    This is probably the best song I've heard in years. Beautiful from start to finish. I love how Jesca sings a different harmony every verse.

  7. Loresk Canada

    Only 7000 views ??? I'm proud to be the fourth comment, but this honestly deserves to be super mainstream.
