I was born to a city, the city lights shone down on me
The road traveled down into some small town
Lord knows that's where I'll be

Take me down to that river where I will baptize my young
Well, the water rose up and spilt over my cup
Washed the black from my tongue

I won't remember where I should be
I won't wait for nothing, nothing waited for me

Lay me down in that valley, where I ran wild as a child
And when my love dies and if I'm in her eyes,
Lay her body next to mine

I won't remember where I should be
I won't wait for nothing, nothing waited for me

Take me back to that city, the stars will light up my way
Put me up on that stage with lines on my page
I'll put my life on display
