We live on a mountain
Right at the top
There's a beautiful view
From the top of the mountain
Every morning I walk towards the edge
And throw little things off
Like car-parts, bottles and cutlery
Or whatever I find lying around
It's become a habit
A way to start the day

I go through all this
Before you wake up
So I can feel happier
To be safe up here with you

I go through all this
Before you wake up
So I can feel happier
To be safe up here with you

It's real early morning
No-one is awake
I'm back at my cliff
Still throwing things off
I listen to the sounds they make
On their way down
I follow with my eyes 'til they crash
Imagine what my body would sound like
Slamming against those rocks
When it lands
Will my eyes
Be closed or open?

I go through all this
Before you wake up
So I can feel happier
To be safe up here with you

I go through all this
Before you wake up
So I can feel happier
To be safe up here with you

I go through all this
Before you wake up
So I can feel happier
To be safe up here with you

Safe up (here with you) ...

    Its kind of like a middle-point in a story I guess. She lived a very adventurous live but now lives with a partner in a secluded mountain area. She talks about how every morning she goes to a top of a cliff to see the beautiful view. And she tosses things off the cliff. She imagines what it would be like to fall off the cliff and commit suicide. It must mean she wants to be in tune with her adventurous side. She does this to feel better about being safe with the person.
