Somehow when you laid here by my side
Something whispered words like rain is falling
Heavy, and she hated, loved to fight
Someone from the sun-cracked sidewalk calling out

“Yoo-hoo
Hey, uh huh”

Sometime I may trade this bone-tired fist
Somewhere I’ll remove this mattress lying
Heavy as a healing word and wind
Someone from the sun-cracked sidewalk calling out

“Yoo-hoo
Hey, uh huh
Hey, uh huh
Hey, uh huh
Hey, uh huh
Hey, uh huh”

    General Commentthis isn't a cover of a SPS song done by iron and wine....
    this is an original SPS song, just with sam beam doing vocals
    because the six parts seven do not have a vocalist
    so on the record they got other sings to do vocals over their music.
