That will be me
That black elk in the mountains
A shadow in the shadows
With the night caught in my eye

That will be me, high
High above you, an echo of an echo
Of footsteps in the sky

Yes, that will be me
But for now, let me remind you
Of the blood that flows inside

That will be me
Though I know not where or when
That will be me
On my own again

That will be me
Those branches shaped like bones
That will be me
Those cars, and jobs, and homes

That will be me
In my mother's arms
That will be me
The infant in these songs
