lyrics

Please don’t forget my name.
I used to have a voice.
I’ll never be the same.
As if I had the choice.

When I fell in to you (Umatilla Flood)
I found what was me.
It turns out that I’m not what I thought I was.
How could I have not seen?

The tide is coming in now.
The waves are rising up.
Will you come back from this, now?
Or will you give it up?

I travelled back home to your river
You water like a mirror
I searched for the child that I had left there.
But he had disappeared.

But when I had looked off the bank
I saw someone who looked like me.
Weathered over time, the lines upon his face.
Fighting to breathe.

And when you’ve lost it all, now,
and when you’re left behind
Your body disappears, now
Fit justice for the crime

Your life is speeding up, now
The dark is setting in.
There’s no one left to hold you.
It sinks in to your skin.

Fumbling in the dark
Where had you gone?
The cross you gave me.
You were everything.

Please don’t forget my name.
I used to have a voice.
