In the Shadow of the Mountain

© 2005 Recorded on Church of the Never Wrong


Where the cold winds blow in the shadow of the mountain

your heart must know what is hidden there among the stony peaks

where the river flows down at the bottom 

let your stolen dreams lie still till the autumn comes


I can take you there to the shadow of the mountain

I will leave you where the sunlight ends then you must go on alone

you'll find no comfort there in the shadow of the mountain

you'll be on your own no one will call your name


And when darkness falls in the shadow of the mountain

and the lonely night rains down in thunderstorm despair

remember me and look above you

everyone who ever loved you will be there


I will wait for you in the shadow of the mountain

when summer ends I will listen for your footsteps by my door

on a day so new in the shadow of the mountain

come morning light I'll see your laughing eyes return


And when the warm winds blow in the shadow of the mountain

your heart will know what is living here among the trees so green

where the river  flows down at the bottom

let the ripplin waters wash away these broken dreams

let the ripplin waters wash away these broken dreams
