Lyrics:

A voice on the shore calling your name
A hand outstretched lighting the flame
Water at the dam waiting to burst
Water in the desert quenching your thirst
A lamppost, a beacon when the night is dark
And when the hammer strikes ignites six hundred thousand sparks
I am that I am that I am and will be
But you are everything to me

An arrow that flies straight to the core
A lover who cries but leaves you wanting more
A rolling river, a bright morning star
An unstoppable train speeding right to your heart
A humble house where the wind blows through
Your window is open, let me occupy you
I am that I am that I am and will be
But you are everything to me

It's a trip of the tongue
It's a turn of the phrase
I will open your lips
That your mouth may
Bring you close to love

It's what you remember and what you conceive
What you revere and what you believe
What you let go and what you forget
What you relinquish and what you regret
A melody playing on a whispered breath
And harmony in the garden at the moment of death
I am that I am that I am and will be
But you are everything to me
