This song is by Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros and appears on the album Here (2012).

The voices in my head are shadows, shadows
She comes to me to tell me what they're after
Says, "It ain't the end boy but you best be careful, careful"
Might catch your tail end in a circle, circle
The ocean, how she moves in ripples, ripples
In flashing lights I swear she was an old friend
Then the color bleeds and she becomes an angel, an angel
Calls out to me like a siren to a scoundrel
I say, "Come on, child"
And I say, "Come on, child"

The blanket where she holds but virtuos lights
Look to the sea where the cotton hits the turnpike
Staring at her needs but I don't have the words right, words right now
If it were up to me might make her turn right, turn right
Lost another one but she just smiles, smiles
Black loving eyes and a ? for miles
Says she wants to stay, oh wants to stay a child, child now
And wonders why we ever ever have to die
And I say, "Come on, child"
And I say, "Come on, child"

Just a touch I'm gonna carry, carry
Another time where our ? shared the same life
The accent of a kiss where spurs were merry, merry now
It's either love or just the sun in my eyes
And I say, "Come on child"
And I say, "Come on child"

Love, love, love, love, love
