(Fleet Foxes cover)


Crown of leaves, high in a window on a cold morning
Young today, old as a railroad tomorrow
Days are just drops in the river to be lost, always
Only you, only you, you know

Years ago, birds of a feather would arrive nightly
Gone, you know, held to another like clutched ivy
On the shore speak to the ocean and receive silence
Only you, only you, you know

You hesitate so my memory fades
I'll hold to the first one
I wouldn't turn to another, you say
On the long night we've made

Let it go.

Only you, only you, you know.

Speak to me slow, my dear
No ghosts, of course, in here
Pleased to be lonesome, quiet, and clear
All is alone in the end
