Darling child, don't feel guilty if it's easier to smile
It's a sign that everything will be alright
during the night when things don't seem alright.

Darling child, it's only logical, it's easier in time
father told me once before he died,
what you about mine will dictate your precious time.

So don't you try,
to bite your lip and cry and cry and cry
your tears again will dry and dry and dry
and i know she died, but it's alright

Oh me oh my
Your mother's dancing, cropping circles in the sky
she's singing Odis Redding every night
and making you a sign to poke in your little lives

and she frets for hours and hours and hours at a time
she snapped a dragon right between the eyes
and she's friends with Jesus Christ
and some other good folks too

so Suzanna, it's gonna be okay too
so Suzanna, it'll be okay soon
so Suzanna, it's gonna to okay too
oh Suzanna, it's gonna be okay too

    General Comment"and making you a sign to poke in your little lives"
    i know that this makes no sense, but it's the closest thing i can make sense of.

    this song is interesting, because in all other RAGC songs, he calls his wife Suzanna (or Anna)
    but in this song, he seems to be singing to his daughter Suzanna about his wife/her mother.
