one grin and wink like the neon on a liquor store... good song

but i can't figure out the lyrics to the damn chorus. or maybe they just don't make sense.

This thread is for listening to the song, figuring out the lyrics, and discussing how great a combination Iron and Wine and Calexico are.

Beyond the ridge to the left you asked me what I want
Between the trees and cicadas singing round the pond
I spent an hour with you, should I want anything else?

One grin and wink like the neon on the liquor store
We were sixteen, maybe less, maybe a little more
I walked up smiling and finally had a story to tell.

And on? an autumn time lullaby
Sing? I? knew? but? I’d? love? to? sleep?
My brother told me he saw you there
In the woods one Christmas eve
Waiting.

I met my wife at a party when I drank too much
My son is married and tells me we don’t talk enough
Call it predictable, yesterday my dream was of you

Beyond the ridge to the west the sun had left the sky
Between the trees and the pond you put your hand in mind
Said time has bridled us both, but I remember you too.

And now? an Autumn time lullaby
Saying? I? knew? boy’d? like? to? sleep?
I dreamed I travelled and found you there
In the woods one Christmas eve.
Waiting.

Is this a mash-up or a collab or something?

I'll download it tomorrow.

it's from a collaborative EP.. Sam Beam on vocals, Calexico on instrumentation.

It's sweet.
