"Cracking" as written by and Suzanne Vega....
It's a one time thing
It just happens
A lot
Walk with me
And we will see
What we have got
Ah

My footsteps are ticking
Like water dripping from a tree
Walking a harline
And stepping very carefully
Ah

My heart is broken
It is worn out at the knees
Hearing muffled
Seeing blind
Soon it will hit the Deep Freeze

And something is cracking
I don't know where
Ice on the sidewalk
Brittle braches
In the air

The sun
Is blinding
Dizzy golden, dancing green
Through the park in the afternoon
Wondering where the hell
I have been
Ah

    Song MeaningDeep Freeze is written with capitals in the lyrics, Suzanne explains the concept:
    "My worst fear is to be frozen, and I mean it in a physical way and also a spiritual way. When I was a child I used to have this state that I would call "hitting the Deep Freeze", which meant that I was paralysed and I couldn't move. That's what I'm most afraid of, I think, and that comes out a lot in the songs."
