      Andrew Bird - My Sister's Tiny Hands Música y Letra

      We came in this world together
      Legs wrapped around each other
      My cheek against my sister's
      We were born like tangled vine
      
      We lived along the river
      Where the black clouds never lingered
      The sunlight spread like honey
      Through my sister's tiny hands
      
      But while picking sour apples
      In the wild waving grasses
      Sister stumbled in the briar
      And was bitten by a snake
      
      Every creature casts a shadow
      Under the sun's golden fingers
      And as the sun sinks past the waving grass
      Some shadows are dragged along
      
      Alone, I took to drinking
      Bottles of cheap whiskey
      And staggering through the back woods
      Killing snakes with a sharpened stick
      
      But still I heard her laughing
      In those wild waving grasses
      Still her tiny hands went splashing
      At the river's sparkling shore
      
      So I took my rusty gas can
      And an old iron shovel
      I set the woods to blaze
      And choked the river up with stones
      
      Every creature casts a shadow
      Under the sun's golden fingers
      And as the sun sinks past the waving grass
      Some shadows are dragged along
