We've had this album, Endless Numbered Days, in our library for a long time, but we hadn't listened to it until recently. Iron & Wine has a nice sound to it with the classic acoustic/folksy sound that we love most. We can't believe that we never listened to it before now!
"There are things that drift away,
Like our endless, numbered days.
Autumn blew the quilt right off
The perfect bed she made.
And she's chosen to believe,
In the hymns her mother sings.
Sunday pulls its children from
Their piles of fallen leave."
"Love and some verses you hear
Say what you can't say.
Love to say this in your ear,
'I'll love you that way.'
From your changing contentments,
What will you choose for to share?
Someday drawing you different,
May I be weaved in your hair?"
--Love & Some Verses
Quick vote: This is great music to listen to on a rainy afternoon when you want to mope around. We love it, but it's definitely not going to cheer you up.
