Next To Normal – I Miss The Mountains lyrics

Diana:
There was a time when I flew higher,
Was a time the wild girl running free
Would be me.
Now I see her feel the fire,
Now I know she needs me
There to share

I'm nowhere.

All these blank and tranquil years
Seems they've dried up all my tears.
And while she runs free and fast,
Seems my wild days are past.

But I miss the mountains.
I miss the dizzy heights.
All the manic, magic days,
And the dark, depressing nights
.

I miss the mountains,
I miss the highs and lows,
All the climbing, all the falling,
All the while the wild wind blows,
Stinging you with snow
And soaking you with rain
I miss the mountains,
I miss the pain.

Mountains make you crazy
Here it's safe and sound.
My mind is somewhere hazy
My feet are on the ground.

Everything is balanced here
And on an even keel.
Everything is perfect
Nothing's real...
Nothing's real.

And I miss the mountains.
I, I miss the lonely climb.
Wand'ring through the wilderness.
And spending all my time
Where the air is clear
And cuts you like a knife
I miss the mountains...
I miss the mountains...
I miss my life.
I miss my life.

    This song is about feeling intensely. Struggling to deal with drugs/prescriptions that wind up make you feel numb and choosing to forego that medication in order to feel anything weather it be bad or good. The middle ground makes you restless and makes life seem dulled. It's hard to accept that as life when you have experienced such high octane moments and such extreme lows. It's about the addiction to extreme emotions and the willingness to risk madness and even potential death by your own hand in order to feel those extreme emotions. To feel real again.

    I very much relate to this song. I don't take psych meds but I have self medicated with marijuana and other drugs to push away intense feelings. I always eventually feel muted by the drugs and go off them. Immediately my mood is in the stratosphere and make plans and try to do everything at once eventually burning out into despair. The first time I heard it live on stage tears we're streaming down my face as the character dumps her pills into the trash.
