New Music - Week 5

This week is a tribute to Iron and Wine who has amazing, mellow, beautiful melodies and lyrics. Although I enjoy many of their songs, my all time favorite is The Trapeze Swinger. It's 9 minutes long and every time it ends, I want to play it again.

Please, remember me
By the rosebush laughing
With bruises on my chin
The time when
We counted every black car passing
Your house beneath the hill
And up until
Someone caught us in the kitchen
With maps, a mountain range,
A piggy bank
A vision too removed to mention

Aren't the lyrics sweet?
