Naked As We Came
by Iron & Wine

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

HOPELESS Ent.

Ricardo Andrés it’s fine like the words of an old book once said “I was birthed naked in this world, and in death I’ll leave the same.”

@Ohms I LOVE Karaoke, lol, and, I agree with ya %100, I thoroughly love reading the lyrics, hearing it, learning the meaning does just that, makes it as meaningful for me as it can.

@Andrew Ross Maxwell Oh, Did I lead anyone to think I didn't enjoy or like this tune, well if I did, I'm very sorry, I ABSOLUTELY love this tune. In fact, it's my wake's playlist, but, it will be removed if when I have passed, was I truly in love??? That has yet to be figured out, lol.... I guess we shall see!!!!

@Tammi Corbett Don't feel embarrassed or overwhelmed by this. This is for people who comprehend better if they are fed information faster than a couple words at a time. They then can hear the words again knowing exactly what is being said. It makes for a more enjoyable and meaningful experience. Try it. I guess if it wouldn't matter if that's the only speed... you kill it at karaoke I'll bet. :)
