Islands On the Coast Lyrics

by Band Of Horses

The hammer caught me
as a lesson you know,
and put the kind words to bed.

For man don't say why,
or even know how,
it's only awful as
the hell that you know.

When islands want to coast,
islands want to coast,
they'll know how,
yeah, they'll know how.

And only hours before
the house had burned down,
he shut the other door.

But if i don't see now,
or even know why,
it's only awful
as the hell that you know.

When islands want to coast,
islands want to coast,
they'll know how,
yeah, they'll know how.

Home, home, home. (x4)

The head was right and then
the next thing you know,
the next day the oven door.

Now if i don't think right,
or even know how,
it's only awful
as the hell that you know.

When islands want to coast,
islands want to coast,
they'll know how,
yeah, they'll know how.

Home, home, home. (x4)
