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

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
