Iron And Wine - The Devil Never Sleeps Lyrics

DreaminÂ’ again of a train track ending at the edge of the sea
Big black cloud was low and rolling our way
Dog at the barbed wire barkinÂ’ at my buzz-cut friends
Friend with a switch blade shininÂ’ in the summer rain
No one on the corner had a quarter for the telephone
Everybody bitchinÂ’ thereÂ’s nothing on the radio

DreaminÂ’ again of a city full of fathers and their white clothes
ChatterinÂ’ boys and a chicken at the choppinÂ’ block
All of us lost at the crosswalk waitinÂ’ for the other to go
DidnÂ’t find the field but boy youÂ’re really waterlogged
Someone bet a dollar that their daddy wasnÂ’t cominÂ’ home
Everybody bitchinÂ’ thereÂ’s nothing on the radio

DreaminÂ’ again that itÂ’s freezinÂ’ and my motherÂ’s in a flower bed
Long dead rows of daffodils and marigolds
ChanginÂ’ her face like a shadow on the ground

No one lives forever and the devil never sleeps alone
Everybody bitchinÂ’ thereÂ’s nothing on the radio
