Mountain At My Gates

Album: What Went Down (2015)
  • I see a mountain at my gates
    I see it more and more each day
    What I give, it takes away
    Whether I go or when I stay

    I see a mountain at my gates
    I see it more and more each day
    I see a fire out by the lake
    I'll drive my car without the brakes

    I see a mountain in my way
    It's looming larger by the day
    I see a darkness in my fate
    I'll drive my car without the brakes

    Oh, gimme some time
    Show me the foothold from which I can climb
    Yeah, when I feel low
    You show me a signpost for where I should go

    I see a mountain at my gates
    I see it more and more each day
    And my desire wears a dark dress
    But each day, I see you less

    Oh, gimme some time
    Show me the foothold from which I can climb
    Yeah, when I feel low
    You show me a signpost for where I should go

    Through lanes and stone rows
    Black granite, wind blows
    Fire lake and far flame
    Go now but come again
    Dark clouds gather 'round
    Will I run or stand my ground

    Oh, when I come to climb
    Show me the mountain so far behind
    Yeah, it's farther away
    Its shadow gets smaller day after day

    Yeah, gimme my way
    Gimme my love
    Gimme my choice
    You keep me coming around
    Gimme my fate
    Gimme my lungs
    Gimme my voice
    You keep me coming around
    Gimme my lungs
    Gimme my, gimme my
    Gimme my, gimme my
    Gimme my, gimme my
    Gimme my, gimme my
    Gimme my way
    Gimme my fate
    Gimme my lungs
    Gimme my choice
    You keep me coming round Writer/s: JACK BEVAN, WALTER GERVERS, YANNIS PHILIPPAKIS, JAMES SMITH
