So I watched her turn into a shadow of herself
while she spewed at you all that darkness that she felt
and you said, "Son, promise me that when I'm in her place
you will fight my aged insults with a warm embrace."

Now I sit you up and I help you take your meal,
And you sulk and cry and tell me I don't understand how this feels
but I do not, I don't know just how to remind you
to trust me to watch out for you in the winter of your life
Remember all that she was is now all that you are
and you took what you learned but you could not move far from that
place where we go to revert to that child
and leave all we've known to return to the wild
Return to the wild
