MOUNTAIN AT MY GATES
i see a mountain at my gates
i see it more & 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 & more each day
i see a fire out by the lake
i'll drive my car without the breaks

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 breaks

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 & more each day
& 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 & stone rows, black granite, wind blows
fire lake & 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
