She was so bright and a tragic
Like the dying planets from the universe that came before ours
She was the cemetery that would always scare me
As I walked by it alone in the dark
She was the story I read to the people in bed
Who needed fantasy to sleep through the night
She was the feeling and joy of every girl and boy
When the end of the school year's arrived

Antarctica
I'll take you to the South Pole
Antarctica
When you've got no place to go
Antarctica
I'll take you to the South Pole
Antarctica

She was the sunshine stars
She had my brains and heart
She was the brightest part of this black universe
She was the thorn of trees
Searching for me, a breeze
She was the only thing good in this universe

It was the strangest thing for him
To ever think that one day he was to give himself to her
But for me what was stranger was
The feeling of danger that I felt the moment that it occurred
"Was it healthy or not?"
Was the question I got from every person that I talked to
If she smokes six packs a day
and that's completely insane
Then how can I pretend she gave me no clue?

Antarctica
I'll take you to the South Pole
Antarctica
When you've got no place to go
Antarctica
I'll take you to the South Pole
Antarctica

She was the sunshine stars
She had my brains and heart
She was the brightest part of this black universe
She was the thorn of trees
Searching for me, a breeze
She was the only thing good in this universe

When I'm a hundred and five
And my ashes resides on the mantle of my future son's home
I hope to never regret any moment I spent
Trying to tally up the beauty I've known
Because the truth is I've liked
Every time that we fight
I can't imagine doing anything else
With my time here on Earth
And all around in the dirt
With a woman who is bad for my health

Antarctica
I'll take you to the South Pole
Antarctica
When you've got no place to go
Antarctica
I'll take you to the South Pole
Antarctica

She was the sunshine stars
She had my brains and heart
She was the brightest part of this black universe
She was the thorn of trees
Searching for me, a breeze
She was the only thing good in this universe

    General CommentI think:
    She was the thorn of trees
    Searching for me, a breeze

    Should be:
    She was the tall oak tree
    Such a familiar breeze

    I could be wrong though. Other than that there are just a few words missing.
