Iron & Wine Lyrics
* Black Candle
Gathered my luck and I went with my brother To where the witch on the hill threw the bones of her mother To where the bravest birds in the height of the sky Tumble down the mountainside And gather to pray like a blanket on the fallen ground Like praying ain't a waste of time She told me again that she knew I'd be coming And she padded her gown with all my counterfeit money She said your love is locked in the garden you grow A soldier's wound that bleeds through his clothes Pick up your gun and pray there's no one left to fight Like praying ain't a waste of time Ain't a waste of time Ain't a waste of time I said you've given me less than you know I can handle So the witch on the hill lit a single black candle Said the name of God is carved on a blade The deals you make will turn in flames So pray for love and the world to pray in kind Like praying ain't a waste of time
