Calexico – Father Mountain lyrics
(feat. Iron & Wine)

Well, my father built a mansion on the mountain
I was chasing my Teresa around a tree
We were kicking precious stones
Sinking ships and swimming home
Only crazy for the comfort of our clothes

Well, my father built a mansion on the mountain
My Teresa dragged her hand across my brow
She said, "The weather's never fair
The wind can only blow your hair"
And I believed her well enough or didn't care

Everyone knows and they don't know
Chandelier light ain't love
It just watches the time go
Across the marble floor, out the order mail door
Even rain can hear it running off the road

Well, my father built a mansion on the mountain
My Teresa threw me kisses through the core
We read the writing on the wall
Braced each other for the fall
There's only one way or the mountain after all

Well, my father built a mansion on the mountain
It was me and my Teresa against the world
We took all the river had to give
Broke the bed and bought a grill
But left the mountain mansion, nothing to forget
