Iron & Wine - Such Great Heights

Such Great Heights is an EP by the Florida singer-songwriter Iron & Wine. It was released in 2006 on the Sub Pop record label.

The title track is a cover of a popular song by The Postal Service. Iron & Wine's version originally appeared on The Postal Service's Such Great Heights single, released in 2003, and was used in the 2004 film Garden State and its soundtrack.

(The Postal Service also had an EP entitled Such Great Heights which contained both bands' versions of the song; it also included a cover of the song "We Will Become Silhouettes" performed by The Shins and an original song entitled "There's Never Enough Time".)


Samuel "SamErvin Beam (born July 26, 1974), better known by his stage and recording name Iron & Wine, is an American singer-songwriter.

He has released six 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). He occasionally tours with a full band.

Beam was raised in South Carolina before moving to Virginia and then Florida to attend school. He now resides in Durham, North Carolina. The name Iron & Wine is taken from a dietary supplement named "Beef, Iron & Wine" that he found in a general store while shooting a film.

Lyrics

I am thinking it's a sign
That the freckles in our eyes are mirror images
And when we kiss they're perfectly aligned

And I have to speculate
That God himself did make us into corresponding shapes
Like puzzle pieces from the clay

And true, it may seem like a stretch
But it's thoughts like this that catch my troubled head when you're away
When I am missing you to death

When you are out there on the road
For several weeks of shows and when you scan the radio
I hope this song will guide you home

They will see us waving from such great heights
"Come down now," they'll say
But everything looks perfect from far away
"Come down now," but we'll stay

I tried my best to leave
This all on your machine but the persistent beat
It sounded thin upon listening

And that frankly will not fly
You'll hear the shrillest highs and lowest lows with the windows down
And this is guiding you home

They will see us waving from such great heights
"Come down now," they'll say
But everything looks perfect from far away
"Come down now," but we'll stay

Testo

Sto pensando che sia un segno
Che le lentiggini nei nostri occhi sono immagini simmetriche
E quando ci baciamo sono perfettamente allineate

E devo supporre
Che Dio stesso ci abbia creati in forme corrispondenti
Come pezzi di puzzle dall'argilla

Ed è vero, potrebbe sembrare una forzatura
Ma sono i pensieri come questo che prendono la mia disordinata testa quando sei via
Quando mi manchi da morire

Quando sei lì fuori sulla strada
Per diverse settimane di spettacoli e quando sintonizzi la radio
Spero che questa canzone ti guidi a casa

Ci vedranno salutare da alture così grandi
"Venite giù adesso", diranno
Ma tutto sembrerà perfetto da così lontano
"Venite giù adesso", ma rimarremo lì

Ho fatto del mio meglio per lasciare
Tutto questo sulla tua macchina ma il ritmo incessante
Sembrava fievole all'ascolto

E quello, sinceramente, non funzionerà
Sentirai gli alti più acuti e i bassi più bassi coi finestrini abbassati
E questo ti sta guidando a casa

Ci vedranno salutare da alture così grandi
"Venite giù adesso", diranno
Ma tutto sembrerà perfetto da così lontano
"Venite giù adesso", ma rimarremo lì
