Upward Over the Mountain
Iron & Wine Lyrics


Mother don't worry, I killed the last snake that lived in the creek bed
Mother don't worry, I've got some money I saved for the weekend
Mother remember being so stern with that girl who was with me?
Mother remember the blink of an eye when I breathed through your body?

So may the sunrise bring hope where it once was forgotten
Sons are like birds, flying upward over the mountain

Mother I made it up from the bruise on the floor of this prison
Mother I lost it, all of the fear of the Lord I was given
Mother forget me now that the creek drank the cradle you sang to
Mother forgive me, I sold your car for the shoes that I gave you

So may the sunrise bring hope where it once was forgotten
Sons could be birds, taken broken up to the mountain

Mother don't worry, I've got a coat and some friends on the corner
Mother don't worry, she's got a garden we're planting together
Mother remember the night that the dog got her pups in the pantry?
Blood on the floor, fleas on their paws,
And you cried 'til the morning

So may the sunrise bring hope where it once was forgotten
Sons are like birds, flying always over the mountain

~~~ Lyrics ~~~

Another head hangs lowly
Child is slowly taken
And the violence, caused such silence
Who are we mistaken?

But you see, it's not me
It's not my family
In your head, in your head, they are fighting
With their tanks, and their bombs
And their bombs, and their guns
In your head, in your head they are crying

...

My best friend died in mid December 2019. This is the last song he sent me. I miss him so goddamn much man. I hope he’s happy wherever he’s at now.

Simon Leonard

Sorry to hear that. Stay strong 🙂💪

@legg75962 no that is not the case we actually could intervene with people depresed as hell and do something. You act as if anyone depressed is doomed to die and that is not the case. lets try harder everyone

MBS Brown

My daughter passed December 5, 2020, this is the last song she sent me as well. Positive thoughts and prayers....

@legg75962 I just listened to this song and you wrote a comment at the same time, amazing

Some people are only meant to be here for a certain amount of time, problem is we don't know who they are and for how long they are supposed to be here. Luckily you got to spend time with them and be a part of their life. I know the feeling all too well. Your friend was obviously inspired by Sam's lyrics. He has a lot of songs that are this good believe it or not. Time heals all wounds but you will never forget.

I guess it's a good thing I don't drink anymore. I'd be sitting here drinking to an entire playlist of these songs "woulda, shoulda, coulda" -ing my entire life while wishing I was never born. If anyone out there is doing that right now, just know that someone wants you alive even if 95% of people want you dead. I want you alive. You might not think you matter, you might not want to take the pain anymore, but someone out there will feel just as bad if you end it. If you're still reading this, that means you're considering life. Please stay. We all need company from time to time anyway. I can't stop the suffering, I can't take you're suffering from you (though if I could, I would), I don't know when it will stop, but I know that one day it will end. Everyone dies eventually, but if you end it before your time, you won't get to see if it ever gets better. You won't get to see any of the little good things that may come across you. Trust me, I still feel like shit, but every now and then, even if it's short-lived, I see good things. I wanted to end it just like you. It's not cowardly to live, it takes more strength to live with the pain then to stop it. Pull yourself up by the bootstraps and walk. I know you can live because you got this far. Live for those who can't. Life is a struggle, but it's a worthy one. Oh, and one last thing... if anyone tells you to kill yourself, give them a big "FUCK YOU" from me.

To me, this song sounds like a son visiting his mother’s grave and while reminiscing about the past also telling her that he finally straightened out his life and that the son himself is becoming a farther and this puts his rebellious behavior in perspective

That's beautiful
