sundown in the briars lyrics – iron & wine

there go the cops with the tongue? cat teeth
here come the church mice trying too hard
she had a way to be kind with words
i had a knife in the back of my guard

n*body knows when the rain may come
n*body wants to wake up and be cruel
she lock the door and the sun went down
south carolina with nothing to lose

all of the naked boys
and not even i was true

/ iron wine lyrics
