THE MOUNTAIN

© Kev Gray 2007

 

I had a dream last night

That the Lord was looking down on me

I saw him standing there

Pointing waving fingers at me

He said, Go down from the mountain

You gotta go down from the mountain

 

I see light all around me

But dark clouds soon follow me

There`s a man called Peter, stroking his beard

Saying, This way through the Great Gate, Please

He said, Go down from the mountain

You gotta go down from the mountain

 

I know you think I led a life of sin

But it`s been a life of misery

I pulled a woman from a raging fire

So please, please - Don`t cut me free

 

Then Hope springs eternal

I see my friends looking at me†††††

I smile, reach out my hand

But they all turn their backs on me

 

They say go down from the mountain

You gotta go down from the mountain

As I look back on my life

I look at every good and bad deed

I pulled a man from the railway line

So please, please - Donít cut me free

†††††††

Then I awake from my dream

See the scene around me and all`s clear to me

There`s a man in the mirror with a gun in his hand

Saying, Squeeze on that trigger, Squeeze

So I go down from the mountain

I head down from the mountain

Now I see I gotta go
