when I look back I was eager
then I didn't have a bone to spare
who could the wrecker of my spine?
i got a heart now that is broken
and i stare up at the sky a lot
who could say i walked a long good line?
beneath a star cap I am spinning
on the ground you say my lover walked
it's hard to climb a mountain when it's free
now i speak to you like cardboard
never laughing never crying out
and i think i learned my lesson from a tree
