Seven times I went down
Six times I walked back
And I don't fear the dark anymore
'Cause I've become all that, all that, all that

I will be rocks
I will be water
I will leave this to my daughter
Lift your head up in the wind
When you feel yourself grow colder
Wrap the night around your shoulders
And I will be with you, even then, even when
I cannot see your face anymore

Don't forget the time
I wooed him with red wine
The devil, he wore such a fine, fine shirt
And it stayed so clean while he dragged me through the dirt

Now honey, don't trust anyone who looks you in the eyes
Don't take any kindness
It's a demand in disguise


I will be rocks
I will be water
I will leave this to my daughter
Lift your head up in the wind
When you feel yourself grow colder
Wrap the night around your shoulders
And I will be with you, even then, even when
I cannot see your face anymore

'Cause I have seen such things child
I have seen (I have seen)
I have seen
I have seen such things child
On this and the other side
Words cannot show you
The midnight owl, it does not know you
You will see for your sweet self
By and by

I will be rocks
I will be water
I will leave this to my daughter
Lift your head up in the wind
When you feel yourself grow colder
Wrap the night around your shoulders
And I will be with you, even then, even when
I cannot see your face anymore

I will be rocks
I will be water
I will leave this to my daughter

    My InterpretationThis song sounds exactly what it's like to have a mother with borderline personality disorder. Reminding you that she will always be with you while giving you a foreboding warning about the world.
