Iron & Wine Lyrics

1. Beneath The Balcony



Let's go out and dance, darling, our last of days
And grace the game with a blindfold on
The cheaters came to play
And outside the soft-handed boys
Screaming cars and all their speed
Music, math, a hero begging change
His sword across his knees

And how he prays to find a man to blame 
For every sleepless night he spends 
And for every well that he warned me of 
But wound up falling in 
And then for the kids beneath the balcony 
Who disregard the rain 
To make sure the king won't grant 
The dead man one more day 

Let's go out and see, darling 
What shines tonight 
And temper your dream about the dying horse 
With traffic, noise, and light 
And somewhere the soft-handed boys
Bleeding hearts, and worker bees 
Give to the holy mother begging change 
Christ across her knees 

And oh, how she prays to find a man to blame 
For every loveless night she waits 
And for every gun that she frowned upon 
But still some fucker made 
And then for the kid beneath the balcony 
Behind the garbage can 
Who waits for the king to come 
And hold his sweating hand
