Judgement

This song is by Iron & Wine and appears on the compilation album Archive Series Volume No. 1 (2015).

Day walks out and there's no sound
There's a candle burning by me now
Light enough for to see the things beyond me
Door is wide as a rise on me
So the night comes in and starts to breathe
The only name that I really know

Tell me did he think of me
At a drop of rain, or when you see
When it rakes as it moves across the water
Judgement comes when I'm all alone
Like a spyglass on the furthest coast
Favored now that it's left behind

When you talk to me
You could swallow me

Nighttime brings me a place I fear
Where I hear your words and feel you near
Fingers only to find a frozen memory
Sometimes clothes chosen long ago
A direction down a gravel road
Makes you wish you could take them back

Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh,
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh

Days walk on and when there's no sound
I go straight to you and find you down
Kneeling next to the water where I left you
Knee-deep now in the creek I made
From the landscape lost I want to save
Save it now or be punished more

When you talk to me
You could swallow me

Nighttime brings me a place I fear
Where I hear your words and feel you near
Fingers never to find a warmer memory
Sometimes friends we knew long ago
Or affections we set free to go
Find you right where you ran to hide

Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh
