The Trapeze Swinger by Iron & Wine

“I've played this and a couple of live versions of it >1,200 times in total. I've not worked out how many hours' worth of listening that is, but I do know that it's an awful lot. And I never tire of it. I consider it pretty much perfect as a song.”

"So please remember me, finally. And all my uphill clawing. My dear, but if I make the Pearly Gates. I'll do my best to make a drawing of God and Lucifer, a boy and girl, an angel kissin' on a sinner."

And then they went on to say that the Pearly Gates // Had some eloquent graffiti // Like 'We'll meet again' and 'Fuck the man' // And 'Tell my mother not to worry' //
