Iron & Wine - Soft Place To Land Lyrics




I know you're out there
Out in that weather
It's rainin' sideways
A hard rain

Keepin' your head down
Buried in your collar
You press into the head wind
Cause there's work to be done

If she don't cling to you
If she don't tend to you
I'll give you respite from your worries
And the wind that's blowin' through
If you're looking for a soft place to land
The calm of a steady hand
An unconditional friend
If you need to take a moment to catch your breath
Come in before you catch your death
You don't have to pass a test to come home

You're faithful pauly
Who's legs have broken
Now leaves you stranded in a high plane
Your gunshot echos
Your heart despairin'
You pack up all you can carry
Cause there's work to be done

If she don't pray to you
And run her fingers through
How about I'll always leave the light on
She don't bend to you
And she don't bow down too
And put her shoulder to the burden
That is weighing down on you

If you're looking for a soft place to land
The calm of a steady hand
An unconditional friend
If you need to take a moment to catch your breath
Come in before you catch your death
You don't have to pass a test to come...

If you're looking for a soft place to land
The calm of a steady hand
An unconditional friend
If you need to take a moment to catch your breath
Come in before you catch your death
You don't have to pass a test to come...

Soft place to land...soft place to land...

    Lyrics:
    I know you're out there
    Out in that weather
    It's raining sideways
    A hard rain
    Keeping your head down
    Buried in your collar
    You press into the headwind
    'Cause there's work to be done

    If she don't cling to you
    If she don't tend to you
    And give you respite from your worries
    And the wind that's blowing through

    If you're looking for a soft place to land
    The calm of a steady hand
    An unconditional friend
    If you need to take a moment to catch your breath
    Come in before you catch your death
    You don't have to pass a test to come home

    Your faithful pony
    Whose legs have broken
    Now leaves you stranded on the high plane
    When the gunshot echoes
    Your heart despairing
    You pack up all you can carry
    'Cause there's work to be done

    If she don't pray to you
    And run her fingers through
    I vow to always leave the light on
    She don't bend to you
    And she don't bow down too

    And put her shoulder to the burden
    That is weighing down on you

    [Chorus]
    If you're looking for a soft place to land
    The calm of a steady hand
    An unconditional friend
    If you need to take a moment to catch your breath
    Come in before you catch your death
    You don't have to pass a test to come


    Soft place to land
    The calm of a steady hand
    An unconditional friend
    If you need to take a moment to catch your breath
    Come in before you catch your death
    You don't have to pass a test to come


    Soft place to land
    Soft place
    Mmm, soft place to land

    I saw Sam Beam and Jesca Hoop on tour in L.A. a couple weeks ago and it was one of the best concerts I've been to. It was such a relaxing night, spending time with some close friends and listening to some beautiful music with them. The two musicians' voices blend so well. Sam's voice is so calming while Jesca's singing provides energy making each song unique and just a pleasure to listen to, especially live.
