That’s Me « See All Songs


Well, I’ll just skip the boring parts
Chapters one, two, three
And get to the place
Where you can read my face and my biography
Here I am, I’m eleven months old
Dangling from my daddy’s knee
There I go, it’s my graduation
I am picking up a bogus degree
That’s me
Early me
That’s me

Well, I never cared much for money
And money never cared for me
I was more like a landlocked sailor
Searching for the emerald sea
Just searching for the emerald sea, boys
Searching for the sea

Oh, my God
First love opens like a flower
A black bear running through the forest light
Holds me in her sight and her power
But tricky skies, your eyes are true
The future is beauty and sorrow
Still, I wish that we could runaway and live the life we used to
If just for tonight and tomorrow

I am walking up the face of the mountain
Counting every step I climb
Remembering the names of the constellations
Forgotten is a long, long time
That’s me
I’m in the valley of twilight
Now I’m on the continental shelf
That’s me—
I’m answering a question
I am asking of myself

That’s me
That’s me
