Halfway home in the hilltop trees
And all our footprints in the snow
And the evening glow, leaving

Low night noise in the winter time
I wake besides you on the floor
Counting your breathing

I can't see nothing in this half moon
Lay me down if I should lose you

Halfway working on a worn out house
And all our friends, the ragged crows
And aching bones, whining

Where are we when the twilight comes?
The darker valley and the breeze
And the frozen leaves, chiming

'Cause I can't see nothing in this half moon
Lay me down if I should lose you

If it were in my car and kept repeating I'd likely head for the nearest tree at some speed to put myself out of my aural misery. Iron & Wine is usually an auto-rate 3 from the Nottingham jury, but this one is an auto-mute for some reason.

Which kind of reminds me of an old Comic Strip episode "Four men in a car", a spoof on yuppies in a car travelling to a conference, where the CD player keeps playing Spandau Ballet's "True" despite having seven shades of sh1t kicked out of it.

 
so sorry..........................I LOVE Iron &Wine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

you are right...way to high...the more I&W I hear, the more it sounds the same...

I can't help but think this guy is just a soup du jour...see Dave Mathews band.

I don't understand the low rating, either. I think that this is a lovely song. Maybe it's not "serious" enough to receive a high mark? {#Whistle}

I love the "do wop" backing vocals on this one. That's his sister, I think.

Funny, I think his previous stuff is pretty dull, for the most part.  The new album is different, at least.  I don't think I'll rush out and buy it, but it's more interesting.

This new album is not doing it for me so far.  :(

Bleah.
