  • I took a bite out of a mountain range,
    Thought my teeth would break, the mountain did
    Let's go, I want to go
    All the way to the horizon

    I took a drink out of the ocean
    And I'm treading water there before I drown
    Let's dive, I want to dive
    To the bottom of the ocean

    Took a ride, I took a ride,
    I wouldn't go there without you.
    Let's take a ride, we'll take a ride,
    I wouldn't leave here without you.

    I am a mountain.
    I am the sea.
    You can't take that away from me
    I am a mountain.
    I am the sea.
    You can't take that away from me

    'Cause you tear us apart,
    With all the things you don't like,
    You can't understand that I won't leave
    'til we're finished here,
    And then you'll find out
    Where it all went wrong

    I wrote a note to the jungle and,
    They wrote me back that I was never crowned
    King of the jungle,
    So there's an end to my horizon

    Took a ride, I took a ride,
    I wouldn't go there without you.
    Let's take a ride, we'll take a ride,
    I wouldn't leave here without you

    I am a mountain.
    I am the sea.
    You can't take that away from me
    I am a mountain.
    I am the sea.

    'Cause you tear us apart,
    With all the things you don't like
    You can't understand that I won't leave
    'til we're finished here,
    And then you'll find out
    Where it all went wrong

    Nothing lasts forever, except you and me.
    You are my mountain, you are my sea
    Love can last forever, between you and me.
    You are my mountain, you are my sea

    I am a mountain
    I am the sea
    You can't take that away from me.

    I am a mountain
    I am the sea
    I am a mountain
    I am the sea Writer/s: Simon Alexander Neil
