this is how i learned to give up
the coldness came so fast it killed us
all of daddy's plants hanging all their heads
they're too icy cold to look up
they shiver, they shiver

this is how i learned to give up
surrounded by the ones you gave us
all their mocking words calling down a curse
from a God that they don't believe in
i shudder.i shudder.i shudder

you're too old to die, my mother
remember when we looked high and saw her
halley's comet bright flew across the sky
now i'm 85 and how i wonder
i wonder, i wonder, i wonder

this is how i learned to look up
i pushed the statues down they crumbled
an audience of one singing all my songs
i have never felt such comfort
