Call me the sea, old and wise.
I'll cover all the stones and the lies.
Lay me down, lay me down.
If there's a will, I'll find your voice.
It's calling another day to night.

Call me the sparrow and I'll fly.
Cut my wings apart and then watch me die.
I'll never feel again.
If there's a will, I'll find your voice.
It's calling another day to night.

Call me a fool. I don't mind.
My mother says I'm old and I've wasted my time.
I don't, I don't think she's right.
If there's a will, can't you hear my voice?
It's calling your name again tonight.

    General Commentthis song is beautiful. im just taking a guess, but i feel like the song is about people praising or losing faith in him, intermittently throughout his life. he doesn't care what people say though, he feels like he'll find what he's looking for eventually as long as he has the willpower to stick to what he feels is right.
