  • I am my mother's only one
    It's enough

    I wear my garment so it shows
    Now you know

    Only love is all maroon
    Gluey feathers on a flume
    Sky is womb and she's the moon

    I am my mother on the wall, with us all
    I move in water, shore to shore;
    Nothing's more

    Only love is all maroon
    Lapping lakes like leary loons
    Leaving rope burns
    Reddish rouge

    Only love is all maroon
    Gluey feathers on a flume
    Sky is womb and she's the moon Writer/s: Justin Deyarmond Edison Vernon

  • Jl from Rome, Georgia, UsaActually pretty bad ass story, hunting for his food and splitting firewood while recording this album.
  • Sian from Sydney, AustraliaBon Iver (Justin Vernon) has always reminded me slightly of the story of Christopher Mcandless, living off the land. I saw him live in January, he was f##king amazing.
