"Come And Find Me" as written by and Josh Ritter....
If I could trace the lines that ran
Between your smile and your sleight of hand
I would guess that you put something up my sleeve
Now every time I see your face the bells ring in a far-off place
We can find each other this way I believe

From the hills and up behind, my town
Is naked from the horizon down
The curvature is pressed against the raise
We walked up in the fields alone
And the silence fell just like a stone
That got lost in the wild blue and the gravel gray

Come and find me now

Though I'm here in this far off place
My air is not this time and space
I draw you close with every breath
You don't know it's right until it's wrong
You don't know it's yours until it's gone
I didn't know that it was home ?til you up and left

Come and find me now

I keep you in a flower vase
With your fatalism and your crooked face
With the daisies and the violet brocades
And I keep me in a vacant lot
In the ivy and forget-me-nots
Hoping you will come and untangle me one of these days

Come and find me now

    General CommentI met josh there a while back.... a complete gentleman and great for a chat! It was after an acoustic gig he did here in dublin... he sang this song with glen hansard from the irish band the frames... it was haunting, two amazing artists together singing an exceptionally beautiful song!

    General CommentHonestly, I think this is a song about the ups and downs of unapologitic love. The kind that takes you by surprise and leaves you changed for life. I cannot figure out whether this is the first time he is professing this or if he is just still in the shadows, hoping for the right moment, hoping vulnerabilty will give him courage to be honest to himself about how he feels.

    General CommentIt's after the relationship is over, and they're remembering all their favorite bits, "Though I'm here in this far off place, my air is not this time and space," wishing their ex-lover would come back, "I didn't know that it was home 'til you up and left." The singer is saving themselves for the person they're remembering in the previous verses, "And I keep me in a vacant lot," wanting the ex to come back and make everything better again, "Hoping you will come and untangle me one of these days."
