The Microphones – Phil Elvrum's Will lyrics

I want wind
I'll trade the traffic for the roaring waves
Or if I die in this van and someone finds this page
Let my voice go out into a salty spray
Let my friends blow salty tears at the sound of my name
In either case take me out of my case
Let my eyes reflect distance
Let me live long days
Or if I die in this car or if I drown in a plane
Let my grieving friends feel freed and brave
And go all the time to the beach to picture my face
I want wind
