From the recording Yosemite

Lyrics

________________________
Behind the backstop
And at the breakfast table
On the school bus
And other assorted torture chambers
The temperature drops, the snow falls
The glacier forms

CHORUS:
Ten thousand tons of ice
Are crushing you
Into a beautiful, one-of-a-kind boy
The thaw will come
And you will be
Yosemite

Year by year
Hour by hour
Insults scrape
Lonelinesses scour
Leaving erratics and striations
Glacial terrain

CHORUS

BRIDGE:
I've seen the brightest sparks
Glowing in the faces
Of my friends whose lives have been
The biggest mess
And there are no landmarks made out of
Ordinary places
Only landscapes that have seen
The most distress

Someday you will dare
To open your heart
And you'll melt one
Like mine
Because you are worth knowing, worth loving
After all

CHORUS

The thaw will come
And you will be
Yosemite
