lyrics

If I knew who I was I’d be here to stay. If I knew who I was. If I knew who I was I’d be found out. All the people in town would come out and say, “There she goes, there’s the one she’s found.” [Oh, oh, oh] There’s no denying something else will happen after this. And, I don’t like not knowing, but I used to when I was younger. And life was a lot less full, and life was a lot more free. I knew who I wasn’t, that was all I needed be. That was all. [Oh, oh, oh] There’s no denying I was made for something. And now I’m thinking it’s more than just this one thing. There’s no denying I was made for someones. Oh, and I wanna let it begin. I wanna let it begin, I wanna let it in, yeah. I wanna let it begin!

Something’s gonna come now, some wind is gonna blow and I hope it’s heavy and I hope it’s slow. And I feel the breath in my teeth and my hair and I get down, get down. Oh, I get down, get down.
