Grace For Saints And Ramblers Lyrics

But it all came down to you and I
But it all came down to you and I
Then we bared our pains, leaving first base
Underneath the table so we never say Grace
Falling out of bed for the work, day, week
There was kissing in the cracks of the flash flood street
There were garden blossoms, Ben and Johnny rotten
Chewed up and swallowed by the profit they were trying to follow
Bit to green and paying no tax on a quick, romantic conversation
But it all came down to you and I
But it all came down to you and I
There were washed out cars and our barked old clothes
They were rubbing on each other, rubbing ghost on ghost
There were junked out punks and Jesus freaks
Weaving in and out of trouble wrapping round and round a leash
There were sleepless dreamers, doomsday preachers
The message and the messenger gone beneath the register
The sweet gum tree by the dope drunk tank

We can never get enough, we re the bad luck band
There were hopeless sinners, sweepstakes winners
But it all came down to you and I
But it all came down to you and I
But it all came down to you and I
There was laughing in the rain, sugar in the shade
There were back stab handshakes made on faith
We were never out of time, and we never entertained
Anybody say out of habit that the wind is gonna change
There were restless misfits leaving biscuits
Bottoms full of penny wishes, bodies full of petty dishes
Side by side with the birds and bees and we never sang Grace
Never ever took a beat
There were saints and ramblers, movie stars handlers
High above the aviary, underneath the cemetery
And we never wondered why cause the sun was in our eyes
There were seeds for the field, there was grease for the wheel
Drinking with the luminaries, eating with the missionaries
But it all came down to you and I
But it all came down to you and I
But it all came down to you and I
But it all came down to you and I
But it all came down to you and I
But it all came down to you and I

Enjoy the lyrics !!!
Iron & Wine is the stage and recording name of folk rock singer and composer Sam Beam (born July 26, 1974). He currently resides in Dripping Springs, Texas, outside Austin. He has released four studio albums, several EPs and singles, as well as a few download-only releases, which include a live album (a recording of his 2005 Bonnaroo performance). The name Iron & Wine is taken from a dietary supplement named "Beef Iron & Wine" that he found in a general store.

Beam was raised outside Columbia, South Carolina, United States where his father worked in land management and his mother was a schoolteacher. He graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with a bachelor's degree and the Florida State University Film School with an MFA degree. Until the first Iron & Wine album, Beam's main source of income was as a professor of film and cinematography at the University of Miami and Miami International University of Art & Design. He had been writing songs for over seven years before a friend lent him a four-track recorder. His friends handed out copies of demos that he had made, and the owner of Sub Pop Records personally contacted Beam and proposed a deal.

Beam released his first album, The Creek Drank the Cradle, on the Sub Pop label in 2002; Beam wrote, performed, recorded, and produced every track on the album by himself at a studio in his home. The album features acoustic guitars, banjo, and slide guitar; its music has been compared, variously, to that of Nick Drake, Simon and Garfunkel, Neil Young, Elliott Smith, and Ralph Stanley.

In 2003 The Sea & the Rhythm was released, an EP collecting other home-recorded tracks along the same lines as those on the debut. Beam's second album, Our Endless Numbered Days (2004), was recorded in a professional studio with a significant increase in fidelity. The focus still lies on acoustic material, but the inclusion of other band members gives rise to a very different sound.

Beam released an EP titled Woman King in February 2005, and the EP In the Reins, a collaboration with Calexico was released in September 2005. This joint work mostly features new full-band versions of previously recorded Iron and Wine rarities.

One of his most famous songs is a cover, which was featured on a commercial for M&M’s candies and in the 2004 film “Garden State” (and on its popular soundtrack), of "Such Great Heights" by The Postal Service.

"Kiss Each Other Clean" is the fourth studio album by Iron & Wine, released January 25, 2011. The album's title is taken from the lyrics of track 10, "Your Fake Name Is Good Enough for Me". The album marks a further change in style – in an interview with SPIN magazine, Beam said “It’s more of a focused pop record. It sounds like the music people heard in their parent’s car growing up… that early-to-mid-’70s FM, radio-friendly music."
