Up to the Mountain

Album: Children Running Through (2007)

  • I went up to the mountain
    Because you asked me to
    Up over the clouds
    To where the sky was blue
    I could see all around me
    Everywhere
    I could see all around me
    Everywhere

    Sometimes I feel like
    I've never been nothing but tired
    And I'll be walking
    Till the day I expire
    Sometimes I lay down
    No more can I do
    But then I go on again
    Because you ask me to

    Some days I look down
    Afraid I will fall
    And though the sun shines
    I see nothing at all
    Then I hear your sweet voice, oh
    Oh, come and then go, come and then go
    Telling me softly
    You love me so

    The peaceful valley
    Just over the mountain
    The peaceful valley
    Few come to know
    I may never get there
    Ever in this lifetime
    But sooner or later
    It's there I will go
    Sooner or later
    It's there I will go
