Lucy Spraggan – Mountains lyrics

Sitting in the station, contemplating looks on peoples faces
Wondering why they're smiling or what troubles they are facing
I don't know why I'm thinking it but I just take the time to sit
And wonder what their dream is and how they're trying to chase it

When an old lady comes and sits next to me
She says, "Next birthday, I'll be 83,
I fell in love with the world when I was 24
I've been to Mexico, Colombia and Ecuador
Sat next to the Taj Mahal whilst the sun was rising
Spent a year in Australia chasing the horizon
So take your guitar and do what you have to do"

She said, "I know what you're scared of, I used to feel it too
You're not scared of climbing mountains
You're scared that you can't make them move
I'll move them for you, I'll move them for you, I'll move them for you"

When the most important piece of information that you've ever heard,
Is that, soon you'll be sitting on top of the world

I'll move them for you
I'll move them for you
I'll move them for you
