I ask, Who am I?
Forever I shall know not,
Between wolds above and those beneath
Eternal life and endless rot.
If all the stars in heaven
Shone into my very soul,
That which was illuminated
I would scarcely know.
If the sun pierced my very core,
I would not know what it had seen,
For who am I,
And what is me?
I would ride down every highway,
Run the course of every byway,
Search ev'ry alley through dead of night,
Sigh at the dawning of morning light.
I could lose myself and never care
About finding what had been there
What reason would I have who cannot find
Really who is the me I left behind.
Who am I? I ask once more,
To heavens high and depths below
Knowing no answer shall be giv'n.
For who I am, I shall never know.
