Iron & Wine Lyrics
5. House By The Sea
There is a house by the sea Two jealous sisters, they're waiting for me And one is laid on the floor And one is changing the locks on the doors And I've been buying the time on my knees And I've been selling their blankets to bleed (on) Around the house by the sea The scent of roses and raspberry leaves And there is smoke in my clothes Too much time with just smoke in my nose And I've been making the meaning they lack And I've been burning that book they come back too There is a house by the sea And an ocean between it and me And like the shape of a wave The jealous sisters will sing on my grave And I've been living to run where they led And I've been dying to rise from their bed And I've been sparing my neck from their chain And they've been changing the sound of my name And I've been swimming to them in my sleep And I've been dreaming our love and our freedom
