My body was sleeping
While my poor mind was dreaming
When they woke me up
I didn't know that I'd been screaming
And my old heart was pounding
For the devil had found me
Trapped me in a corner of my mind
And my legs were both shaking
From the pain they'd been taking
Picked my body up and aimed for home
But these boots have seen better
Can't make sense of this weather
Rolling over me, up in the sky
But I was warm like a fire
For I was full of desire to hold on, to not let go
Thought of friends, thought of family
And all who surround me
Those enemies I danced with so long ago
Let them know

If you find water, please call my name
Put me out like a fire, cover me in rain

Thought of stars and the planets
Wondered how they could have planned this
And what were they thinking
How could they have known?
I felt small but full of pride
I felt tall for my size
My eyes were black and fixed on the night
And your name just hung
From a song I had sung
There in the air suspended by beauty
There are words that get spoken
Oh and lies they leave broken
Some stone breaks in half
And some stone shatters
But my speech had been fleeting
Like the company I'd been keeping
I never asked for their names
They never asked for mine
Just a polluted highway
Or a clouded skyway
I'm a mess, I confess
Now send me the maid

If you find water, please call my name
Put me out like a fire, cover me in rain

Thought of stages with their singers
Oh and painters with their fingers
I was strong like a horse in carrying my song
To drop it off in some stable
When I was young, I was able
To never turn around, to never look behind
To grow old, to grow distant
Like a mare in the distance
Bothering no one, so let her live until she dies
Picture lilies, picture willows
In a wide-open window to a room with a view
And both of us laughing
Just children so young
Oh at least in the scheme
With our hair still there
And you keep my teeth clean
I sing, who is my creator?
Not my mother, nor my father
But before the universe burst wide on open

If you find water, please call my name
Put me out like a fire, cover me in rain
If you find water, won't you call my name?
Put me out like a fire, cover me in rain
