Upward Over The Mountain (Iron and Wine Cover) Lyrics

Mother, don't worry, I killed the last snake
that lived in the creek bed.
Mother, don't worry,
She's got some money saved for the weekend.
Mother, remember being so stern
With that girl who was with me.
Mother, remember the blink of an eye
When I breathed through your body.

So may the sunrise bring hope
Where it once was forgotten.
Sons are like birds flying
Upwards Over the Mountain.

Mother, I gave it up from a bruise
On the floor of this prison.
Mother, I lost it all of the fear
Of the Lord I was given.
Mother, forget me now that the creek
Drank the cradle you sang to.
Mother, forgive me I sold your
Car for the shoes that I gave you.

So may the sunrise bring hope
Where it once was forgotten.
Sons are like birds taking
Broken Over the Mountain.

Mother, don't worry, I've got a coat
And some friends on the corner.
Mother, don't worry she's got a garden,
We're planting together.
Mother, forgive me that the creek
Drank the cradle you sang to.
Mother, remember the night the dog
Had her pups in the pantry.
Blood on the walls and
Fleas on their paws and
You cried 'til morning.

So may the sunrise bring hope
Where it once was forgotten.
Sons are like birds flying
Always Over the Mountain.
