The Trapeze Swinger - Iron and Wine

"Please, remember me

 By the rosebush laughing
With bruises on my chin
The time when
We counted every black car passing
Your house beneath the hill
And up until
Someone caught us in the kitchen
With maps, a mountain range,
A piggy bank
A vision too removed to mention

Please, remember me

I heard from someone you're still pretty
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'
And angels with their gray
Were always done in such a hurry

Please, remember me
At Halloween

Making fools of all the neighbors
Our faces painted white
 By midnight
We'd forgotten one another
And when the morning came I was ashamed
Only now it seems so silly
That season left the world
And then returned
And now you're lit up by the city

Please, remember me

In the window of the tallest tower call
Then pass us by
But much too high
To see the empty road at happy hour
Leave and resonate
Just like the gates
 Around the holy kingdom
 With words like 'Lost and Found' and 'Don't Look Down'
And 'Someone Save Temptation'

Please, remember me
As in the dream

We had as rug-burned babies
Among the fallen trees
And fast asleep
Aside the lions and the ladies
That called you what you like
And even might
Give a gift for your behavior
A fleeting chance to see
 A trapeze
Swing as high as any savior

Please, remember me
My misery

And how it lost me all I wanted
Those dogs that love the rain
And chasing trains
The colored birds above there running
In circles round the well
 And where it spells
On the wall behind St. Peter's
So bright with cinder gray
And spray paint 'Who the hell can see forever?'

Please, remember me

In the car behind the carnival
My hand between your knees
You turn from me
And said 'The trapeze act was wonderful
But never meant to last'
The clown that passed
Saw me just come up with anger
 When it filled with circus dogs
The parking lot
Had an element of danger

Please, remember me

And all my uphill clawing
My dear
 But if i make
The pearly gates
Do my best to make a drawing
Of God and Lucifer
A boy and girl
An angel kissin on a sinner
 A monkey and a man
 A marching band
All around the frightened trapeze swingers"
