Passing Afternoon

Iron and Wine

------------------------------------------------------------------------

------------------------------------------------------------------------

 GDEmC
There are times that walk from you like some passing afternoon
 GDEmD
 Summer warmed the open window of her honeymoon
 GDEmC
And she chose a yard to burn, but the ground remembers her
 GDEmD
 Wooden spoons, her children stir her bougainvillea blooms

 GDEmC
There are things that drift away like our endless, numbered days
 GDEmD
 Autumn blew the quilt right off the perfect bed she made
 GDEmC
And she's chosen to believe in the hymns her mother sings
 GDEmD
 Sunday pulls its children from their piles of fallen leaves

 GDEmC
There are sailing ships that pass all our bodies in the grass
 GDEmD
 Springtime calls her children 'till she lets them go at last
 GDEmC
And she's chosen where to be, though she's lost her wedding ring
 GDEmD
 Somewhere near her misplaced jar of bougainvillea seeds

 GDEmC
There are things we can't recall, blind as night that finds us all
 GDEmD
 Winter tucks her children in, her fragile china dolls
 GDEmC
But my hands remember hers, rolling 'round the shaded ferns
 GDEmD
 Naked arms, her secrets still like songs I'd never learned

 GDEmC
There are names across the sea, only now I do believe
 GDEmD
 Sometimes, with the windows closed, she'll sit and think of me
 GDEmC
But she'll mend his tattered clothes and they'll kiss as if they know
 GDEmD
 A baby sleeps in all our bones, so scared to be alone

Enjoy =)
