Everyone Requires a Plan – The Lumineers

He whispers secrets through a thick mustache
And she listens to him flicks her cigarette’s ash
And smoke hangs velvet curtains, and hides her lips
And she hopes to hell it’s worth all her health risks

I know it was you
I know it was you

Cause everyone requires a plan
I can give you
It’s all been a sleight of hand

I know it was you
I know it was you

Boots of Spanish Leather – The Lumineers

Oh I’m sailin’ away my own true love
I’m sailin’ away in the morning
Is there something I can send you from across the sea
From the place that I’ll be landing ?

No, there’s nothin’ you can send me, my own true love
There’s nothin’ I wish to be ownin’
Just carry yourself back to me unspoiled
From across that lonesome ocean.

Oh, but I just thought you might want something fine
Made of silver or of golden
Either from the mountains of Madrid
Or from the coast of Barcelona ?

Oh, but if I had the stars from the darkest night
And the diamonds from the deepest ocean
I’d forsake them all for your sweet kiss
For that’s all I’m wishin’ to be ownin’.

That I might be gone a long time
And it’s only that I’m askin’
Is there something I can send you to remember me by
To make your time more easy passin’ ?

Oh, how can, how can you ask me again
It only brings me sorrow
The same thing I want from you today
I would want again tomorrow.

I got a letter on a lonesome day
It was from her ship a-sailin’
Saying I don’t know when I’ll be comin’ back again
It depends on how I’m a-feelin’.

Well, if you, my love, must think that-a-way
I’m sure your mind is roarmin’
I’m sure your thoughts are not with me
But with the country to where you’re goin’.

So take heed, take heed of the western wind
Take heed of the stormy weather
And yes, there’s something you can send back to me
Spanish boots of Spanish leather.

White Lie – The Lumineers

As a kid, my hands were red
When you asked me I denied it
I’ve told lies that never came true
I have stolen and so have you

If we can make it through another day
With you believing in my innocence
And we can make it through another year
Cause we both need it to forget this fear

If it’s all the same to you
Then it’s just a little white lie
Then it’s all the same to me
And it’s just a little white lie
If I was to blame would you?
Would you still believe?

I don’t want you to forget
Just pretend that it never happened
And it’s just a little white lie
And it’s just a little white lie

If it’s all the same to you
Then it’s just a little white lie
Then it’s all the same to me
And it’s just a little white lie
If I was to blame would you?
Would you still believe?

Where the Skies Are Blue – The Lumineers

You’re gonna leave, it ain’t gonna break my heart, mama
I’ve never seen nobody quite like you

And if you ever change your tune
Oh, the world’s got the best of you
You can always find me where the skies are blue

Wanted to change, turn into what you love, mama
And I woulda gave all of my best to you

So, if you ever need a fool
Who will give you a love so true
You can always find me where the skies are blue

Lay your dreams, little darlin’, in a flower bed
Let that sunshine in your hair, in your hair

You’re gonna bleed somebody’s brand new love, mama
Who’s gonna feel you like it always do

And when your fairytale is through
And you’re looking for someone new
You can always find me where the skies are blue
You can always find me where the skies are blue
