Naked As We Came
Iron & Wine Lyrics


She says, "Wake up, it's no use pretending"
I'll keep stealing, breathing her
Birds are leaving over autumn's ending
One of us will die inside these arms
Eyes wide open, naked as we came
One will spread our ashes around the yard

She says, "If I leave before you, darling
Don't you waste me in the ground"
I lay smiling like our sleeping children
One of us will die inside these arms
Eyes wide open, naked as we came
One will spread our ashes around the yard

She says "wake up, it's no use pretending" 
I'll keep stealing, breathing her.
Birds are leaving over autumn's ending 
One of us will die inside these arms 
Eyes wide open, naked as we came 
One will spread our ashes 'round the yard 

She says "If I leave before you, darling 
Don't you waste me in the ground" 
I lay smiling like our sleeping children 
One of us will die inside these arms 
Eyes wide open, naked as we came 
One will spread our ashes round the yard

These guys couldn't get any better.  I wrote this because of them

the cameras can't catch crazy
why am I watching this show?
crushing the truth of humanity
this show is what some call a low-blow

even if it's just one shot
one person
lying on the surface of all things seen
to get a cable owners assertion

I won't pay for your show!!
I would rather steal it
you stole my money
now you can too feel it

Messing around with rebels
is the quickest way to helplessness
they have no emotions
and you have even less...

My memory runs deep
my feelings, like money to a jew
got in a fight with the sky
it was the wrong shade of blue...

I have been around way too long
to be fooled by you
seen too many situations
where I was the winner, not you
lifes'  been interesting
some would say miserably

I will stake my claim
and lay down my ego
keep it in check you know
rolling around this town
with some of the craziest thoughts around
the curse of an artist
constantly struggling with them self
a perfectionist with an impossible goal
I said impossible...

but the journey gets you close
to becoming what the struggle is about
kinda liking this
changed my mind
not heading south

This album was "weird dark pretty lullabies" when I first heard it, after finding the person I want to spend my life with, it became "songs that are so true I can barely stand to listen to them." Either way, it's a masterpiece.

Finding this at 15 and now being 23... yes.

I’m sorry to hear that. I know all too well what that’s like. I suggest you listen to Jason Isbell’s “If We Were Vampires.”

Shit quality version unfortunately. Click on a different upload of this song and the sound is normal.

This beautiful song was played at my friend's funeral last week - we all managed not break down until this was played! Only 49 with a lovely family - if you read this post - go and hug your partner / children/ friends and tell you love thewm! You just never know!!
