Quarters In A Pocket

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

Like the setting sun
And more than anyone
You look warmer when you're sinking down

Find your favourite tree
And come sit next to me
I've a sheet that's softer than the ground

This time spent with you
Feels like charcoal sketches for a painting
That you won't let me see
But I've come to find
That comfort comes like quarters in a pocket
I thought were lost to me

All your favourite clothes
And all the pain we know
Came from those you favour for a time

Take it off your chest
And throw your loneliness
In a surly river, cold and wild

This time spent with you
Feels like charcoal sketches for a painting
That you won't let me see
But I've come to find
That comfort comes like quarters in a pocket
I thought were lost to me

Lie about your sign
And hang your worry line
On a missing poster for a dog

Find a promise ring
And blind affinity
For a match the gypsy said was wrong

This time spent with you
Feels like charcoal sketches for a painting
That you won't let me see
But I've come to find
That comfort comes like quarters in a pocket
Discovered accidentally
