"Name Written in Water" as written by and Cass Mccombs....
in the very center of my soul
is a knife(?) from which images are sold(?)
i just wish i knew what the sold(?) was for

prison of childhood, a thousand suburban homes
every highway across the west i've flown
mesas in utah are standing like an ancient throne

my name written in water
water water water
water water water
water water water
my name written in water

if these lines are my last verse
they might well be remembered also as my first
and possibly even as my worst

fear and solitude, faithful as any friend
cannot even linger about after i descend
my name is written in water and i'm gone again

my name written in water
water water water
water water water
water water water
my name written in water

none of this will last, just like melting ice
none of this, though how i loved the beautiful lights(?)
you can never step in the same river twice

what dreams may come when shuffle off this mortal coil
must give us pause, said the danish royal
i wonder if i'll even get to keep my soul

my name written in water
water water water
water water water
water water water
my name written in water

water water water
water water water
water water water
my name written in water
my name written in water
my name written in water
my name written in water
