lyrics

I met a man, who turned his back on man’s ambition
To those who think this world’s one great competition
- a race you couldn’t count him in

And so he walked, from mountain to mountain
To clear his thoughts, to make sense of it all
his eyes fixed on a new horizon

I walked with him, and as we wandered around
I wondered if he ever got the urge to walk back down

And he said
‘All known rivers lead to one big sea
In one place is not the place I wanna be
And all these roads just lead you to some town
As for me, I’m only searching for the higher ground
And I won’t stop ‘till that mountain is found’

I knew a girl, she was hard to understand
She took me in, but she never took my hand

I was a stranger
in her world
there’s no love, there is no man
who could occupy this girl

She said
‘I’ve met so many men who have claimed to be
the prince who’s come to resque me
But I’m not in despair, no I don’t need no man
I could tell you, but you’ll never hear me plea
I need only me to tell me that I’m free’

There was a time, when all I did was dream
A state of mind, or somewhere in between
When I searched, for a piece of ground
To make mine, and to make it worth

Every single step that I have made
has lead me to believe that what I find
Floating in that space not far behind
are mountains only if they seem to be
casting shadows of my dreams of you and me
