Oh, Sleeper – The Summit lyrics
[Verse 1]
From here I see clear for miles
Searching through our best times to force a smile
My blood is leaving, but the sun's still shining
And I can't see a cloud in sight
I can see our own, but they won't get here in time

[Pre-Chorus]
Every man has a mountain
And every day is spent climbing

[Chorus]
The view from the top
Is just the journey that brought you
And you'll give it all up
For one more day at the bottom
At the summit you'll wish
That you were anywhere but here
It's clear
That every man has a mountain to fear

[Verse 2]
I hear they could see the fire for miles
But I don't know if you'd known the cost if you'd ever light it
It took your two different banners on the frontline burning
And I ain't put a cloud in sight
If you knew you'd die alone, would you ever stand to fight?

[Pre-Chorus]
Every man has a mountain
And every day he spends climbing

[Chorus]
The view from the top
Is just the journey that brought him
And he'd give it all up
For one more day at the bottom
At the summit he'll wish
That he was anywhere but here
Ain't it clear
That every man has a mountain to fear?

[Bridge]
I don't wanna close our eyes
I don't wanna go our separate ways
I don't want the story that brought us here to end today
I don't wanna close our eyes
I don't wanna go our separate ways
I don't want the story that brought us here to end today

[Chorus]
'Cause the view from the top
Is just the journey that brought us
And I'd give it all up
For one more day at the bottom
At the summit I wish
That I was anywhere but here
It's so clear
But I guess every man has a mountain to fear
