That

Yes, I'm that
that
Obsesses over the moon and stars
Wishes on them every nite
Looks to them for answers to questions like
Why am I here and
Why do things happen the way
They do

I know they're really just clumps Of dust and gas
But to me they're more
They are proof that something
Anything
Is out there

Yes, I'm that
that
Eats mint chocolate chip ice cream At all hours of the day
I let it numb my throat

And yes, I'm that
that
Will save you
From yourself
You need to try to
Look to the Heavens for the questions
You think you know the answers to

You need to try to
Eat mint chocolate chip ice cream
(However corny that may sound)

Yes, I'm that
that will
Save you
Teach you

And love you
