Naming

I am the flame that sparks the ember
I am the thunder in the deep
I am a broken tree upon a far hill
a song to make minstrels weep
I spoke to gods, I have loved blindly
I set the fire to set you free
I tread by moonlight where you won't pass by day
you may have heard of me

(chorus)
the truth unbound
I name what I've found
but you don't believe me
you don't believe me
all things are named
but all things may change
you don't believe me
you don't believe me

for I was born to tread the world's stage
where all you meet are merely players
I'll take each word apart til I understand
what lies beneath all the layers
for I was born out of an anger
more vast than speech, too dark to see
& I will find him out in this world or his
to bring it here to me

(chorus)

& so you've come to me to wonder
just what I've come to tell today
my sword is lost, my strength is fractured at best
at least that's what you might say
but I have come to know that power
becomes what you ask it to be
it's sleeping lightly in the name of the wind
& you will hear from me

(chorus)

& all will know me

the truth unbound
I name what I've found
you will believe me
you will believe me
my voice be raised
& his name be razed
you will believe me
you will believe me

you may have heard of me...

A song for Kvothe, whose story is still being told..
