Sufjan Stevens - Carol Of St. Benjamin The Bearded One Lyrics




I can see you there
Oh, in the snowbank
With a snowman at your side
In my heart and in my spirit I concede
The things you want in life you have to really need
This is a matter of life

Only parents cry
Oh, when they want to
Show the world they're still alive
And in my heart and in my spirit I believe
The draft beneath the doorframe comes to challenge me
This is a matter of life

Oh, be kind to me
Oh, Benjamin who
Keeps his hands inside his sleeves
And in my heart and in my spirit I can read
The way he brushed his beard against the cedar tree
Keeping his eyes upon me

I can see you there
Oh, in the snowbank
With a snowman at your side
And in my heart and in my spirit I can see
The things you want in life you have to really need

    So gorgeous.

  2. Colin West

    I want to live in a never ending rift of 0:55 -1:15 of this song FOREVER

  3. gbluecheez

    Listened to this more outside of christmas season than during it

  4. Michelle Cerioni

    I love sufjan music diversity to death, and think its one of the reasons why he's so great. But in this moment i wish all of his music was just like this, in this exact style.

    Let👏me👏tell👏you👏about👏this👏tune👏. It👏has👏been👏slept👏on👏for👏too👏long👏. It has cozy-ass™ lyrics and has rescued me from the confines of a panic attack when it is lonely and dark out. The instrumentation soothes my chapped soul and Sufjan's voice feels like a weighted blanket for my palpitating heart. The lyrics smell of lavender and my muscles relax in response. Thank you so much, so much.

    God, those emojis are awful. It's like internet babytalk.

    Love this, but who can make sense of the lyrics?

    I can see you there
    Oh, in the snowbank
    With a snowman at your side
    In my heart and in my spirit I concede
    The things you want in life you have to really need
    This is a matter of life

    Only parents cry
    Oh, when they want to
    Show the world they're still alive
    And in my heart and in my spirit I believe
    The draft beneath the doorframe comes to challenge me
    This is a matter of life

    Oh, be kind to me
    Oh, Benjamin who
    Keeps his hands inside his sleeves
    And in my heart and in my spirit I can read
    The way he brushed his beard against the cedar tree
    Keeping his eyes upon me

    I can see you there
    Oh, in the snowbank
    With a snowman at your side
    And in my heart and in my spirit I can see
    The things you want in life you have to really need

    Gay. It is a gay song about seeing a cute bearded Saint and silently eye-flirting with him.

    Colin West

    I think this is about seeing the homeless out in the winter and the chill. The way people feel bad for them but don't really help. They see you in your home, in your warmth. The things you want in life are what you really need. This is a matter of life is summing up each verse, saying these are the facts.

  7. Jon Madison

    one of those tracks that gets me in the feels...certain notes == T.T

  8. Ryan Smith
