A breeze blows through the mountain high
Can't stop the years that shift outside
I'm looking back when I look up
I see the mountain but no doves
My innocence slides over me
To bury me and make me free

I shut my doors so I won't hear
Won't hear the words you speak to me
I lock up tight so I won't know
Know when it comes to bury me

I lie and tell you I'm all right
That there is nothing on my mind
The avalanche is getting near
I'll raise a toast and drink my beer
I drink cause I already know
Just what you'll say and where you'll go?

I shut my doors so I won't hear
Won't hear the words you speak to me
I lock up tight so I won't know
Know when it comes to bury me

I thought that you might be the one
To have my kids and grow old with
And I am forced to wonder why
This world could be so cruel and I
Wonder if I'll find a reason
To open my eyes when
Morning comes or if I'll just
Close them again
And try to sleep until I am dead
