TITLE: Like a Mountain
Lyrics and Chords

Driving near Mount Shavano
It seemed to be looking me over
Feeling that gaze down below
I pulled the car off on the shoulder

/ Gm - / / / / C - Gm - C - Gm - /

Staring at the rock and the sky
My heart began beating more slowly
Till I lost track of time
And forgot where it was I was going

.... / C - Gm - C - /

Suddenly, I saw life from the brink
I watched an age pass me by like a wink
For just one heartbeat, I believe I could think
Like a mountain

/ Eb BbF / / Eb BbF C - / Gm - - - / 

Mountain, we measure our lives
By tens and by twenty years only
Teach us the ways of a million-year mind
What a million-year heart could be hoping


And oh, if I'm wise I will strive and I'll pray
To turn that one tick in time into a day
And lead this poor picture-flash life in that way
Like a mountain
Like a mountain

/ Eb BbF / / Eb BbF C - - - / Gm - - - / /
