lyrics

Mountain Song

The mountain called me by the name
“Just a little longer, just a little higher,” she sang.
I was short of breath, my back was in pain.
But all I could hear was that sweet refrain,

She sang:
”Keep climbing on.
Forget all the rest, just listen to my song.
Keep climbing on.”
And I was drawn to her voice though I knew it was wrong.

But the mountain kept on singing all the same:
“Step up, step lighter, step after step, don’t delay.”
I had come so far, there was no turning back, no way.
Just me, you and the mountain and I could not resist her refrain.

She sang:
”Keep climbing on.
Forget all the rest, just listen to my song.
Keep climbing on.”
And I was drawn to her voice though I knew it was wrong.

The hardest thing I had to do
To tune out that mountain so I could hear you.

But from now on I’ll be drawn to your voice cause I know it’s the right choice.
