Future Islands - Tin Man Lyrics




You couldn't possibly know how much you meant to me
You couldn't honestly look inside my tarot
You couldn't possibly find it in your heart to forgive me
You are the savage sun and scarecrow

And time – goes by
And you've got a lot to learn, in your life
And the heart's not inside
And I've got to find the one that's just right

You offer all amends in hopes of saving me
You never imagined I could be strong without you
You offer me a branch of peace that bleeds through
The thorns that welcomed me – now speak truth

I am the Tin Man
I am the Tin Man
I am the Tin Man
I am the Tin Man
I am the Tin Man
I am the Tin Man

  62. Benjamin Billman

    Once the physical body is liberated from a downcast view of the mind....
    Oh the wonders it can feel.
    When the human body is troubled by weighty emotion...
    No release and stagnant motion...
    I surrender ---
    Seeing grace in it's fullness.
    Perceiving my roots are planted so firmly.
    Nothing can ever change where I belong..
    But I sure can get distracted and wrong...
    Bring out loud loving music.
    They hid all along ---
    Bring out the holy medicine.
    And ring the bong ----
    See!
    We all can get along.
    Love that's free will never stop.
    Love that's free will make you rock.
    Love to sweep up all your cast down hope.
    And give it back to you.
    A nudge to cope.
    You are the catch don't seek further for a better food....you are God's pupil --- I hope you c your life 'fore it's gone.

    N E O N G R O O V E

  94. mkdowork

    I am the Tin man!!

  95. Chris Wilson

    At one of there shows I passed a very stuff gentleman who wouldn't let people get by. He was shielding his girlfriend and acting very perturbed to that people were grazing them (no one around him was at all aggressive or rude). He cut my friends off as we passed and "put his foot down". I could tell he was expecting a nice mellow easy listening experience... I politely asked to let my friends by which he refused, then looked at him and said "I'm not really sure this is going to be what you think it is" (nodding towards the stage). He scoffs. "Ok but heads up, when you hear him say ' this next song's called tin man' brace yourself". That ended up being the rowdiest F.I. show I've ever seen. Waves of crowd surfing and a pit that shuffled everyone in a thirty foot radius. Sam was screaming like the devil and pouring buckets of sweat, I looked back about half way through and after watching them glance uncomfortably back and forth for a minute they panicked and scuttled away to safety.

    Scott Gordon

    You say that but like....every single video i've found on YT is a bunch of kids jumping up and down in place at best.  Kinda a bummer.

    Darko Bosnjak

    @Scott Gordon I've been to 3 of their shows in Croatia, and it's always pretty wild. This is from last show in Zagreb in October 2014 /watch?v=z14QB0MsWPU

    Jokanaan

    I was so disappointed in the crowd when I finally saw them last year - everyone was acting like dreary hipsters, too cool to dance. In my city, their popularity has attracted a less passionate audience. But the silver lining was that since me and this random girl were the only people really dancing in the crowd, Sam kept smiling at us and coming over and singing to us!! :) :) :)

    Jokanaan

    This is my favorite Future Islands song.... and one of my top 10 favorite songs of all time. I was screaming it and bawling my eyes out
