Foals – Mountain At My Gates lyrics

[Verse 1]
I see a mountain at my gates
I see it more and more each day
What I give, it takes away
Whether I go or when I stay

[Verse 2]
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

[Verse 3]
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

[Chorus]
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

[Verse 4]
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

[Chorus]
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

[Bridge]
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?

[Chorus Variation]
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

[Outro]
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
