Walking down the road in the middle of the night
Singing this song to myself:
“I will find you, I will find you, I will find you, I will find you”

The wind goes through my clothing
“I will find you, I will find you, I will find you, I will find you”

Not even knowing what I’m looking for by walking in the dark
My life is just saying one thing
“I will find you, I will find you, I will find you, I will find you”

Then all of a sudden there was a light
I saw my shadow on the ground
I thought a car was coming
I turned around there was no car
It was me revealed in moonlight.

What I find will be found easily
Only when I’m not looking for it
Without looking for the morning in the sunset
And it’s like this; my will to live
Hides implied of my heart beating
Without looking for fulfillment, just accepting it

    General CommentFrom the very first time I listened to this song I just fell in love. There's something about his voice that makes my heart skip a beat. Not quite sure what this song exactly means, but the lyrics are very powerful.

    My Interpretationto me, this means finding contentment in who you are. it is about ending a misguided search for fulfillment and discovering you already have exactly what you need to be happy.

    only phil elverum could capture this so perfectly.

    General Commentit's interpreted the same everywhere, but the ending sounds more like this:

    and like this my will to live
    hides implied in my heart beating
    without looking for fulfillment, but just accepting it
