Iron & Wine – Autumn Town Leaves lyrics
In this autumn town where the leaves can fall
On either side of the garden wall
We laugh all night to keep the embers blowing
Some are leaping free from their moving cars
Stacking stones 'round their broken hearts
Waving down any wind that might come blowing

[?] move out when the field is cut
Serpents curl when the sun comes
Songbirds only end up where they're going
Some get rain and some get snow
Some want love and some want gold
I just want to see you in the morning

Dogs lay down in the evening heat
Fish to us when they leave the sea
Songbirds only end up where they're going

In this autumn town where the lights can change
Some get mercy and some get blamed
Some get lost when they feel the river flowing
It's all holy smoke and the flame dies fast
We hold our hats while the days fly past
Cold wind comes and we wait but it keeps going

Father, Sons and Holy Ghosts
All come back or they all come close
Songbirds only end up where they're going

Some get hard and some go home
Some want flesh and some want bone
I just want to see you in the morning

Yeah, I just want to see you in the morning
