  • On top of the mountain
    You make your stand
    You’re never gonna come down
    To this level again
    Everything’s better
    When you’re feeling tall
    On top of the mountain
    Try not to fall
    On top of the mountain
    Better learn to swim
    Don’t you know that the river
    Is gonna rise again
    Oh deep water
    Churning all around
    On top of the mountain
    Careful not to drown
    You know there’s two paths
    Down every road
    Sometimes it don’t matter
    Which way you go
    Through the darkness and the rain
    The sorrow and the pain
    I’ll keep on riding
    Down here at the bottom
    We’ve seen it all before
    A million people
    Walk through that door
    And every hand
    Reaching for the light
    On top of the mountain
    Better hold on tight
    You know there’s two paths
    Down every road

    Sometimes it don’t matter
    Which way you go
    Through the darkness and the rain
    The sorrow and the pain
    I’ll keep on riding
    On top of the mountain
    All alone
    Count the roses
    Around your throne
    Everything’s heavy
    When you wear the crown
    On top of the mountain
    It’s a long way down Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
