  • Yeah, yeah

    What you got if you ain't got love
    The kind that you just want to give away
    It's okay to open up
    Go ahead and let the light shine through
    I know it's hard on a rainy day
    You wanna shut the world out and just be left alone
    But don't run out on your faith

    'Cause sometimes that mountain you've been climbing
    Is just a grain of sand
    And what you've been out there searching for forever
    Is in your hands
    And when you figure out love is all that matters after all
    It sure makes everything else seem so small

    It's so easy to get lost inside
    A problem that seems so big at the time
    It's like a river that's so wide it swallows you whole
    While you're sitting around thinking about what you can't change
    And worrying about all the wrong things
    Time's flying by, moving so fast
    You better make it count 'cause you can't get it back

    Sometimes that mountain you've been climbing
    Is just a grain of sand
    And what you've been out there searching for forever
    Is in your hands
    Oh, and when you figure out love is all that matters after all
    It sure makes everything else seem
    So small, yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

    Sometimes that mountain you've been climbing
    Is just a grain of sand
    And what you've been out there searching for forever
    Is in your hands
    And then you figure out love is all that matters after all
    It sure makes everything else
    Oh, it sure makes everything else seem
    So small

  • Kory from El Paso, Txi love this song especially the music video im only 13 but i make things that are so small giant carrie you rule
  • Mark from Byrdstown, TnUnderwood is vastly overrated.Ive seen her live several times and she sounds nothing like her records.Her in between song chatting to the audience is just horrible.She is basically a record label creation and a studio manufactured voice.Weak songs and a mediocre voice doom her to just a blip on the screen in the genre of country music.
