Bon Iver

Calgary (4:09)

Justin Vernon has never been to Calgary, which means he can look at it in a certain way. According to the Calgary Songfacts that's why he chose to use the Canadian city as a metaphor for a wedding-vow between two people that haven't met.

don't you cherish me to sleep
never keep your eyelids clipped
hold me for the pops and clicks
I was only for the father's crib
