The Mountain To The Sea

from Come As You Are by basic



A nice acoustic/unplugged song about the ups and downs of life


The Mountain To The Sea (1995)
Dancin' on the hilltops
Following the mountain to the shore
All the way you stop to wonder
Will I see this mountain anymore?
Such a calm and peaceful place
You don't want to leave it but you know
There will be many mountains you will see

As you reach the shore you notice
A wide and open raging sea
"Can this be the way to go now
Is this sea calling to me?"
Though the waters rage around you
You press on 'cause you can see
There will be another mountain there for me

On this path of life we go through many stormy
Seas not knowing when we'll reach dry land
But looking back just reminds us of where we used to be
Not where we're going to be
Pressing on toward the goal of our lives we will
Reach that final mountain top, there with Him

Following the path to heaven
Stormy seas come and they go
But mountains interrupt their madness
A sturdy peaceful place to go
There is one last mighty mountain
A final mountain for your soul
There will be the greatest mountain we will see
