"Phantom Mountain" as written by and Laura Veirs....
At the top of
Phantom Mountain
I saw the turquoise
Brilliant burning sea
The sweat on my shoulders
The silvery haze
Swords of lightning
Hawks and Gulf Stream
Made me crazy, crazy

I could not tell the truth
I could not tell the truth
From the mirage, from the mirage

Yellow butterfly
On the rocky path below
Fluttering lifeless
In the shimmering glow
Of the Phantom Mountain
Took her heartache
Took her beautiful face
To a distant place

I could not tell the truth
I could not tell the truth
From the mirage, from the mirage

I could not tell the truth
I could not tell the truth
From the mirage, from the mirage

    General CommentAmazing sound. Sometimes, I wish the lyrics could be more about her, and less imagery. But I do like it as it is. I just as a rule like more... Auto-biographical songs. :S
