"Lion Tamer" as written by and Damien Jurado....
We said goodbye a year ago
We sat within the farmhouse
So you know, don’t you?

I went to the house alone
The power out, no telephone
You know, you’ll know

The gun in the drawer
The long distance call
A story to tell

Patience drifts into the sound
You are nothing to me now
I made time to figure out
Save us now before we drown

Hello, goodbye I said last we met
I’ll be easy to forget
You know, you’ll know

An empty beer, the sealing broke
The saddest song we ever wrote
You’ll know, don’t you?

It’s all for the best
It’s not what it seems

The gun in the drawer
The long distance call
A story to tell

Patience drifts into the sound
You are nothing to me now
I made time to figure out
Save us now before we drown

    General Commenthas anyone noticed that the chorus of this song has the same melody as that 1976 song by pedro the lion? and it's called "lion tamer" so i think that's a little joke.
