When I was a child
No older than six
I used to look up at the sky
And wonder why
It curved over the horizon

I wondered what Being
Could have the power to bend such a thing
As large and strong as the sky
And not ask why
It was doing it to begin with

But then I left those thoughts behind
And focused on what I thought was important
I no longer looked at the sky
And wondered why
It curved over the horizon

One day I was at the park
When a child came up to me
She said do you ever look at the sky
And wonder why
It curves over the horizon?

Do you ever wonder what Being
Could have the power to bend such a thing
As large and strong as the sky
And not ask why
It was doing it to begin with?

I said there was once a time
When I was a small child
That I looked up at the sky
And wondered why
It curved over the horizon.

There was a time when I wondered what Being
Could have the power to bend such a thing
As large and strong as the sky
And not ask why
It was doing so to begin with

I said if you think there's a Being
That's controlling what we do
Who likes to bend the sky
And not ask why
Then you can.

She smiled at me and left
And for the first time in years
I looked up at the sky
And wondered why
It curved over the horizon
