Iron & Wine Lyrics
* Two Hungry Blackbirds
Lovers accustomed to tragedy See every kiss in the window across the street Breezes and blessings passing by, ah ooh-oh I'm in the shade of the dogwood tree Not the one where you told your name to me Two hungry blackbirds land near by, ah ooh-oh If I could be over you when the sky starts falling Would you be happy under me? If I could be under you if the earth was burning Could you be trusted over me? Spoke to a mother whose baby drowned Gave me advice, or a rumor she once heard: �Heaven's a distance, not a place,� ah ooh-oh Gave her an ear from the corn we grew You were away but she gave her thanks to you That was a year ago come May, ah ooh-oh If I could be over you when the sky starts falling Would you be smothered under me? If I could be under you if the earth was burning Would you be crying over me? I could hear kids in the yard next door Cats in the brush when the calendar fell down Wait by the shade-tree one more year, ah ooh-oh Poetry tempered with tragedy Tempted and pulled when you cry upon my sleeve Two flocks of blackbirds meet the air, ah ooh-oh
