Thoughts on Songs with Gregory Alan Isakov

I believe that this song is about reincarnation because he repeats "we" and "remember" when describing things that they experienced together. Another piece of evidence I believe supports this theory of mine is when he says "Can you help me remember?" and "do I look familiar?" then proceeds to say "when we were all flying free. We were dust from our bodies."
