shadow song lyrics – mountain goats

if you get there before me, will you save me a seat?
if you get there before me, would you save me a seat?
and if i never get there at all
would you leave the seat empty?

if you get there before me, will you light us a fire?
if you get there before me, will you light us a fire?
and if i never show, will you watch the embers glow?
would you keep the fire burning?

this is a song for you
in case i never make it through to where you are
this is a song for you
in case i never make it through to where you are
