  • Lyrics
  • Watched him walk away (watched him walk away)
    Climb the endless shadow side
    Watched him holding on
    (watched him holding on) (watched him walk away)

    It was a thousand years, a thousand miles, a thousand dreams, a thousand minutes
    With no goodbye
    Disappear from me (a thousand miles, a thousand dreams, a thousand minutes)
    Hold on!
    As he climbed the highest peak of the dark mountain

    Let the mountain sleep
    In the past with all our bad dreams

    Was it a metaphor for all the subtle ways we would grow apart?
    Was it mortality?

    Climbing and plunged right off of the edge of his life!
    Into the hands of a loving God, oh reaching forward to get torn apart
    With his hands in the air, was he laughing and dancing or only just trying to wave "Goodbye!"

    Say a prayer for me (Hold on!)
    As he climbed the highest peak of the dark mountain
    Let the mountain fall
    Struck me down until I canâ??t go on

    Let go! Let me fall down! onto! the ground

    Don't leave
    Go on alone

    It felt like a thousand years
    It was a thousand miles away
    It was a thousand miles away Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
