Thursday – As He Climbed The Dark Mountain lyrics

Watched him walk away (watched him walk away)
Climb the endless shadow side
Watched him holding on
(Watched him holding on) (watched him walk away)
It was a thousand years, a thousand miles,
A thousand dreams, a thousand minutes
With no goodbye

Disappear from me (a thousand miles, a thousand dreams, a thousand minutes)
Hold on!
As he climbed the highest peak of the dark mountain

Let the mountain sleep
In the past with all our bad dreams

Was it a metaphor for all the subtle ways we would grow apart?
Was it mortality?

Climbing and plunged right off of the edge of his life!
Into the hands of a loving God,
Oh reaching forward to get torn apart
With his hands in the air,
Was he laughing and dancing
Or only just trying to wave 'Goodbye'!

Say a prayer for me (Hold on!)
As he climbed the highest peak of the dark mountain
Let the mountain fall
Struck me down until I can't go on

Let go! Let me fall down! Onto! The ground

Don't leave
Go on alone

It felt like a thousand years
It was a thousand miles away
It was a thousand miles away
