lyrics

Why must I wake up like this
In the mountains
You wouldn't want to
See me as I am
Right now

How much time must I be here
In the mountains
You wouldn't want to
See me as I am
Somehow

Heard a yellow throated bird
Singing sweetly
Nothing lovely ever lasts
Long enough to see

Twice the time that you need
Half the time that you want
From me
All the things that you see
Find a home eventually

Why must I go home so soon
From the mountains
You wouldn't want to
See me as I am
Right now

How much time
Must I be gone
From the mountains
You wouldn't want to
See me as I am
Somehow

Heard a river outside
Singing sweetly
Nothing lovely ever lasts
Long enough to see

Twice the time that you need
Half the time that you want
From me
All the things that you see
Find a home eventually
Eventually...
