My Side Of The Road

This song is by Iron & Wine and appears on the album Ghost On Ghost (2013).

Saw you take it on the chin outside the Phoenix Motor Inn
You could always find a way to kill the bird and keep the flame
Somehow lighter on your feet, crossing the dark end of the street
Falling harder than a star cause you could hear the broken heart
Within the world, within the world
That ain't your song, it won't sing along

Mission bugs out every night, they throw themselves into the light
Always waking from a dream of blowing up and burning clean
Saw you cold and getting wet, sucking the ends of cigarettes
You learned how to love a scar cause you could hear the broken heart
But you won't sing that sad song

Saw you run and hide, I saw you slide across the sky
But I never saw you down on my side of the road

Saw you take it on the chin and fix it back with bobby pins
Saw you lose before the start, I saw you shining in the dark
Saw you chained, I saw you choke, saw you running out of rope
Saw you shaking off the blues, I saw you recognize the tune
But you won't sing that sad song

Frisco's too much for me to bear, I thought for sure you'd meet me there
But I never saw you down on my side of the road
