I want to know
I want to know what you know
I want to go
(Where do you go? Where do you go?)
I want to go where you go when you're gone
I've longed all along but I cannot

And so I have a heart divided
Although I have longed to find you

I have a hope
(Hope all alone!)
A little bone all along in the yard
(A little bone)
Old and discarded, oh
And I don't know
(What do you know?)
Well I don't know if we'll float or be gone
A boat in the storm all a loss

And so I have a heart divided
Although I have longed to find you

A whole heart divides!
A heart divides like the wings of a bird in flight!

    General CommentThis is such a beautiful song. I love it. I'm not entirely sure what it's about though.

    My InterpretationThe author wants to know if a loved one, who has died, is experiencing an afterlife. If they are then the author wants to join him/her eventually. It is possible that the deceased is a dog!
