I have decided you’re the Grand Canyon,
saw the Grand Canyon once when I was 5,
standing in awe before that vast beauty,
unsurpassed, truly, I felt so alive,
++so if you’re far beyond my reach, that’s just fine,
++and if you’ve got something to teach, I’ll stand in line,
++take the lesson with me,
++you’re not mine, but I like you better free..

nobody gazing at the Grand Canyon
thinks “this is so cool, man, what does it cost?”
and nobody says, “maybe I’ll just claim it,
I could rename it, then I’ll be its boss”
++so if you’re far beyond my reach, that’s just fine,
++and if you’ve got something to teach, I’ll stand in line,
++take the lesson with me,
++you’re not mine, but I like you better,
++you’re not mine, and I like you,
++you’re not mine, I like you better free..

I have decided you’re the Grand Canyon…
