Bon Iver: Woods / Kayne West: Lost in the World

Oh, to howl with the wolves! Here is Bon Iver’s magical 4-line song “Woods” to howl together in harmony, friends, as November deepens.

I’m up in the woods
I’m down on my mind
I’m building a still
to slow down the time

It was sampled on “Lost in the World”, a collaboration with Kayne West on the remarkable “My Dark Twisted Fantasy”, telling the urban side of the story:

I’m lost in the world,
I’m down on my mind
I’m new in the city,
and I’m down for the night
