Heart Of The Mountain

I once knew a mountain
that grew from a grain of sand
Every year she grew bigger
Stretching out across the land

Every day she opened her heart
to welcome the dawning sun
Every night she ran with the moon
Until the time there was none



I've seen every sparrow fall
Let me crumble back to earth
Let there be nothing left at all
Nothing left at all



Can you see those diamonds
The ones she hid deep inside
Way too heavy to carry
Way too precious to hide

The hounds lay quiet now
The wolves sleep at her side
No one mourns her passing
All is lost with the unforgiving tide



I've seen every sparrow fall
Let me crumble back to earth
Let there be nothing left at all
Nothing left at all
