"Dearest Forsaken" lyrics - IRON & WINE

"Dearest Forsaken"

To my dearest forsaken
Who the earth now has taken
Empty, the bottle drains no more

It is true that I loved you
Despite the harm now on you
Wash us, the river has you, boy

Here on the eve of too long
Where you'll think I've done wrong
Wakin' in fear of you no more

I put my trust in the savior
Fumin' forces of nature
Strength of the stump I tied you, boy

To my dearest forsaken
Dearest vow I have broken
Afraid of your angry hands no more

Put my trust in the savior
River may have me later
Sleep with my lost love for you, boy
