EACH COMING NIGHT



EACH COMING NIGHT

By Samuel Irvin Beam (Iron & Wine)

Will you say, when I'm gone away,
"My lover came to me, and we'd lay
In rooms unfamiliar but until now." ?

Will you say to them, when I'm gone,
"I loved your son for his sturdy arms.
We both learned to cradle then live without." ?

Will you say, when I'm gone away,
'Your father's body was Judgment Day.
We both dove and rose to the riverside." ?

Will you say to me, when I'm gone,
"Your face has faded, but lingers on,
Because light strikes a deal with each coming night." ?
