When its all said and done, i will have grown into myself
ill be walking down a beach of burning gold
my mane reflecting all of my days,
and my broad weathered shoulders will sway with my stride

When its all said and done, i will make peace with it all
ill sit in the sand and feel its age
touch my skin i have worn along the way
and reminisce with the tales of the marks I've made

When its all said and done, i will walk alone
carry myself along the shore,
i will meet with the people I've loved  
and tell them to remember me well

When its all said and done, ill melt into the sea
ill slip of my cloth and let the foamy surf encircle my knees
and as the warm dark breath of the stars surround my ears
i will realize that I'm free
