Iron & Wine Lyrics
* Foot Of The Manger
Awake through the night, and this flood water around her Reminds her of the time and low country boys And their bottles without her, though she�s on their minds Hands in black mud, at the foot of the manger She�ll always be young and free to be wrong A black lamb licks the dirt off her feet with its tongue We are blessed, aren�t we? In the shade of these large auburn leaves Unexpectedly we arrive where we�re all meant to be Awake through the night, and she prays in the morning For distance from harm and low country boys With their wealth of protection and mean battle-arms Hands in black mud, as she sits by the manger And closes her eyes, the wind blows outside A black car pulls the gravel and wants her to ride So who will she love, with her head lowed like ashes? The sky lost tonight, the wind blows outside A glass jar in the window, her shape blocks the candlelight
