I was a highwayman
With sword and pistol by my side
Many a soldier shed his lifeblood on my blade
But I am still alive
I was a sailor
And with the sea I did abide
I went aloft and furled the mainsail in a blow
But I am living still
I was a dam builder
Where steel and water did collide
I slipped and fell into the wet concrete below
But I am still around

Across the Universe divide
I'll find a place to rest my spirit if I can
Or I may simply be a single drop of rain
And I'll be back again, and again and again and again and again
