I've scaled the highest mountain
Crossed the big blue sea
Chased that mighty, mighty dollar
Dreamed of the man that I could be

Little things all around me
Little things that I could never see
Like the love you tried to give me
And in the end, just threw it away

I stood atop the golden tower
Rode upon a silver steed
Piled the riches higher and higher
More then a man could ever need

Little things all around me
Little things that I could never see
Like the heart beating inside me
That I just threw it away
Like this heart beating inside me
That I just threw it away

Those little things all around me
Little things I never learned to see
Like the love you tried to give me
I went ahead and threw it away

Like the love you tried to give me
I just threw it away
Oh, threw it away

Little things all around me
Little things that I could never see
Like the heart breaking inside me
I just threw it away
