Upward Over the Mountain by Iron & Wine

Saturday song lyric:

Mother don’t worry
I killed the last snake that lived in the creek bed
Mother don’t worry
I’ve got some money I saved for the weekend
Mother, remember being so stern
with that girl who was with me?
Mother, remember the blink of an eye
when I breathed through your body?

So may the sunrise bring hope
where it once was forgotten
Sons are like birds flying upward
over the mountain

Mother, I made it up
from the bruise of a floor of this prison
Mother, I lost it all
of the fear of the Lord I was given
Mother forget me now
that the creek drank the cradle you sang to
Mother forgive me
I sold your car for the shoes that I gave you

So may the sunrise bring hope
where it once was forgotten
Sons are like birds flying
upward over the mountain

Mother, don’t worry
I’ve got a coat and some friends on the corner
Mother, don’t worry
she’s got a garden we’re planting together
Mother, remember the night
that the dog had her pups in the pantry?
Blood on the floor and the fleas on their paws
and you cried ’til the morning

So may the sunrise bring hope
where it once was forgotten
Sons are like birds flying
upward over the mountain

See live performance here.
