"Calm On The Valley" lyrics - IRON & WINE

"Calm On The Valley"

There's a rooster, a hen, a black dog
By my kid in the yard
And I've tattooed the head
Of the woman I've wed on my arm
We sit on the lawn
And she winks and she yawns
At the sound that the setting sun makes
As it lights up the lake and goes down
And you ease my troubles with your hands
Like the night puts a calm on the valley
Moved my shaking castle from the sand
When you gave me your soul for to marry
Dum da dum, da da dum...
The cicadas in tune ain't too noisy for you
But too fast, as the night eases in
Like dark wine on our skin and the grass
Now the moon's high above
You're the woman I've loved for so long
It's the last goodnight kiss and
These moments I miss when you're gone
