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
