Elbow - Fly Boy Blue / Lunette

Peter Gabriel — Come Talk To Me (Secret World Live)

The wretched desert
takes its form,
the jackal, proud and tight.
In search of you,
I feel my way
through slowest, heaving night.

Whatever fear invents,
I swear it makes no sense.
I reach out through the border fence.
Come down, come talk to me…

The song itself starts at about 0:56 and I reckon you should give it a listen. It’s beautiful. The lyrics are brilliant, the performance is great and Paula Cole duets magnificently.

There’s also a Bon Iver cover floating around if that’s more to your taste.

Well, it’s whisper time remembered
Through armored thorns and knives
And it’s all that I’ve got left
To hold onto.
