Iron & Wine — Halfway To Richmond lyrics

I'll make supper for myself
I'll watch the clock upon the shelf
I'll clean this broken house

Is your time better spent?
By giving such a small percent
Your every pleasant dream that I've tried

Once this ugly thing I see
When was this cold calling me?
And in my [?]
They got him

I sleep with the lights left on
Until all restraints are gone
Is there something you've forgotten?

Who knew?
Some want the better
And all we had
Waited in the next room

And a fool just to carry on
You're the thing that I belong to

Instrumental

Underneath is falling down
Silence, turn around
These games aren't too fun when you're gone

Where you go and why do you leave?
I'll close my eyes
And count to 3
Then hurry up
And wait by the phone

Who knew?
Some want the better
And all we had
Waited in the next room

And a fool just to carry on
You're the thing that I belong to
