Take This Mountain – lyrics

So you say, so you say
There’s a mountain in your way
Casts a shadow on your days
So you say, so you say

Take a breath and soon you’ll see
More than trouble at your feet
And the climb is not so steep
Take a breath and soon you’ll see

Take this mountain and make it yours
Don’t try to move it anymore
Let that rest be your reward
Take this mountain and make it yours

On the side you can build a house
With a window looking out
Down the valley where you left your doubt
On the side you can build a house

But stay close to the winding stream
It’ll wash away those bitter dreams
‘Til the water runs clean
Stay close to the winding stream

There’s an early train
There’s an empty lane
That stretches out across the range
So don’t look up for who to blame
When there’s a mountain in your way

You will sleep like a grizzly bear
When you wake, that mountain air
Will fill your lungs and comb your hair
You will sleep like a grizzly bear

So you say, so you say
There’s a mountain in your way
Well that mountain’s what you make
So you say, so you say

You’ll take that mountain and make it yours
Won’t try to move it anymore
Let that rest be your reward
Take that mountain and make it yours
