Bon Iver Lyrics


This my excavation and to
Day is Qumran
Everything that happens is from now on
This is pouring rain
This is paralyzed

I keep throwing it down, two
Hundred at a time
It's hard to find it when you knew it
When your money's gone
And you're drunk as hell

On your back with your racks as he stacks your load
In the back with the racks and he stacks your load
In the back with the racks and you're unstacking your load

I've been twisting to the sun
I needed to replace
And the fountain in the front yard is rusted out
All my love was down
In a frozen ground

There's a black crow sitting across from me
His wiry legs are crossed
He's dangling my keys, he even fakes a toss
Whatever could it be
That has brought me to this loss?

On your back with your racks as he stacks your load
In the back with the racks and he stacks your load
In the back with the racks and you're unstacking your load

This is not the sound of a new man
Or a crispy realization
It's the sound of me unlocking and you lift away
Your love will be
Safe with me

LYRICS: (You're welcome.)

This my excavation and today is kumran
Everything that happens is from now on
This is pouring rain
This is paralyzed

I keep throwing it down two-hundred at a time
It's hard to find it when you knew it
When your money's gone
And you're drunk as hell

On your back with your racks as the stacks are your load
In the back and the racks and the stacks of your load
In the back with your racks and you're un-stacking your load

Well I've been twisting to the sun and the moon
I needed to replace
The fountain in the front yard is rusted out
All my love was down
In a frozen ground

There's a black crow sitting across from me
His wiry legs are crossed
He is dangling my keys, he even fakes a toss
Whatever could it be
That has brought me to this loss?

On your back with your racks as the stacks are your load
In the back and the racks and the stacks of your load
In the back with your racks and you're un-stacking your load

This is not the sound of a new man or crispy realization
It's the sound of the unlocking and the lift away
Your love will be
Safe with me

Makes me think of sitting in a parked car with someone you love and the rain hitting the window.

Roslyn Enygma

This is me right now except I'm alone in the car watching the rain and...eating cookies🤣😔

This song is actually the only song played in a minor tuning in "For Emma Forever Ago". However, its the only song on the album that represents happiness, Bon Iver moving on from a sad and emotional part of his life and starting a new chapter. Brings me back to my relationship that ended with my highschool sweatheart who I was dating for 4 years. Bittersweat.

And then you turn back to them and they aren't there, only the new beads of rain streaking down... And it makes you smile, maybe not happy maybe not sad, but somewhere in there, a smile.

This is exactly how I would describe this song, nailed it!! And Ben Howard - Promise

Idk if anyone cares, but I’m gonna share my story if that’s ok.
When I was severely depressed in college, I would lay in my bed for hours on end just staring at the ceiling and feel numb. There was no sadness, no anger, just numbness to get me through every day. The one thing that would make me feel something was this song. Somehow, in all the darkness I felt, this song gave me a reason to continue going through each day. Thank you Justin Vernon for writing this masterpiece and for saving my life.



Edit: wow I’m floored by all the love I’ve gotten from complete strangers. I am eternally grateful for all of you. I’ve made it through all of that and if you relate to my story, I’m glad you guys have to.

Hope you are doing better today!!
