Iron & Wine – House By The Sea lyrics

There is a house by the sea
With jealous sisters, they're waiting for me
And one is laid on the floor
And one is changing the locks on the doors
I've been buying their time on my knees
And I've been selling their blankets to bk--

Around the house by the sea
The scent of roses and raspberry leaves
And there are smoke in my clothes
Too much time with just smoke in my nose
But I've been making the meaning they lack
And I've been burning that book they come back to

There is a house by the sea
And an ocean between it and me
And like the shape of a wave
The jealous sisters will sing on my grave
I've been learning to run where they live
And I've been dying to rise from their bed
And I've been sparing my neck from their chains
They've been chained in the sound of my name
And I've been swimming to them in my sleep
And I've been dreaming our love and our freedom
