Mountain at My Gates
I see a mountain at my gates
I see it more and more each day
And what I give, it takes away
Whether I go or when I stay

I see a mountain at my gates
I see it more and more each day
I see a fire out by the lake
I'll drive my car without the brakes

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 brakes

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 and more each day
And my desire wears a dark dress
But each day I see you less

Oh, gimme some time
Show me this foothold from which I can climb
Yeah, when I feel low
You show me a signpost for where I should go

Through lanes and stone rows, black granite, wind blows
Fire lake and 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

Gimme my lungs, gimme my, gimme my, gimme my, gimme my
Gimme my, gimme my, gimme my, gimme my, gimme my way
Gimme my fate, gimme my lungs, gimme my choice
You keep me coming 'round
