“I am thinking it’s a sign that the freckles in our eyes
Are mirror images, and when we kiss
They’re perfectly aligned.
And I have to speculate that God Himself did
Make us into corresponding shapes like
Puzzle pieces from the clay.
And true, it may seem like a stretch but it’s
Thoughts like this that catch my troubled head
When you’re away–when I am missing you to death.
When you are out there on the road for
Several weeks of shows, and when you scan
The radio, I hope this song will guide you home.
They will see us waving from such great heights.
‘Come down now,’ they’ll say.
But everything looks perfect from far away.
‘Come down now,’ but we’ll stay.
I’ve tried my best to leave this all on your machine
But the persistent beat, it sounded thin upon listening.
And that frankly will not fly.
You’ll hear the shrillest highs and lowest lows,
With the windows down, when this is
Guiding you home.
They will see us waving from such great heights.
‘Come down now,’ they’ll say.
But everything looks perfect from far away.
‘Come down now,’ but we’ll stay.”

-Iron & Wine
