Iron & Wine – Jezebel
THE INTRO!! omg
Beautiful lyrics and song.. Do You think he finally found Jezebel or the dogs took her for eternity?
This song sounds like a time and place I can’t ever get back to.
This is one of those songs that slowly, softly weighs down your heart… So pretty and nostalgia-inducing, and the vocalist’s voice is wonderful.
The same stick must have been shoved up these 3 people’s asses that disliked this song
Goes well with a whiskey in the late evening, real chillin’ track. Love the slow smooth lick, just like the whiskey. Yummee.
The truth of life has been revealed, and it is better than anything we could have imagined. You are not your mind, you can walk away from your old self. You can be a free creation of the present moment. You just have to know the truth to do it, the truth will set you free by showing you what you already are. Google *_Truth contest_* and check out the top entry. Nothing could be more important or worthwhile.
I’m at the hospital holding my one-day-old daughter, Jezebel, playing this for her as she sleeps.
Why cant love be easy?
Black kids are born only in September. I’m a black kid, your like feed my with milk?
a cutie showed me this a while ago and i listen to it every now and then. beautiful song 🙂 reminds me of her and just good times
lay here my love
you’re the only shape I’ll pray to Jezebel
I think this song has a much simpler meaning than the Biblical story (even though it has constant references to it). I think it is the story of a man (the narrator) falling in love with Jezebel. However, he knows that many others (the dogs) want her, but for the wrong reasons(to put it crudely, sexually motivated), shown by “we swear we love you”. Even though he knows this, he loves her enough to be willing to wait forever for her to feel the same way about him-“will the mountains last, as long as I will wait”. The song is set when Jezebel has disappeared, and he fears that she has finally given in to the ‘dogs’, and has left him forever.
That’s my personal view on it, as an atheist (thought I’d mention that due to the context of the song), and someone seeing the simpler and really more relatable side of the song. Anybody else see it like this?
falling asleep to this song is divine.
I will chime in with the obligatory “they don’t make music like this anymore” comment. It’s true though! This was a gorgeous song… Up there with “each coming night” as one of Sam’s very best. His music still gives me chills. Long live the indie rock of the mid 2000s
Listened to these songs on my iPod when I was training for marathons back in the mid-2000’s. Can’t run anymore (bad knees) but went back to listen to these songs and remember a really good period in my life.
This song is beautiful but the live version from his ultra rare Norfolk 6/20/05 album is one of my top 5 songs of all time. I wish it was on YouTube but, alas, it is THAT rare. Heart wrenchingly beautiful.
This song is about dogs losing their owner Jezebel… Sam beam is singing as one of the dogs.
I love this song… <33
My sister just had a child named Jezebel and listening to this is making me tear up
