"Mr. Soul" lyrics - IRON & WINE

"Mr. Soul"

Well hello Mr. Soul, I dropped by to pick up a reason
For the thought that I caught that my head in the event of the season
Why in crowds just a trace of my face could seem so pleasin'
I'll cop out to the change, but a stranger is putting the tease on
I was down on a frown when the messenger brought me a letter
I was raised by the praise of a fan who said I upset her
But any girl in the world could have easily known me better
She said, "You're strange, but don't change," and I let her
Ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh
So in a while will the smile on my face turn to plaster
Stick around while the clown who is sick does a trick of disaster
For the race of my head and my face is moving much faster
Is it strange I should change, I don't know, why don't you ask her
Is it strange I should change, I don't know
