"Mt. Washington" as written by and Emily Wells....
Before we got out, I had my doubts

but walking around in the middle of the town,

freedom can be fun

Tell me all that wakes you wise

forget the mortgage and the end of time

we’ll blend together like bleeding lips

and trust that death’ll be our dying wish

come on over to the dark side, I’ll keep it warm

My love, don’t you worry, I got you in my arms

So we got out, first thing that we did was hit the hill top

to gaze upon the city that had given us birth

and listen to the sound of a baby’s crying

It all starts somewhere… it all starts somewhere

And once the sun had left the autumn sky

and the laughing of the children had gone inside

we wandered through the shadows of the tall streetlights

and remembered that it all ends somewhere

It all ends somewhere… it all ends somewhere

Tell me all that wakes you wise

forget the mortgage and the end of time

we’ll blend together like bleeding lips

and trust that death’ll be our dying wish

come on over to the dark side, I’ll keep it warm

My love, don’t you worry, I got you in my arms

my time keeps floating away

My love, don’t you worry, I got you in my arms

    General CommentThis song is probably THE most meaningfully beautiful song Ive ever had the pleasure of hearing.

    Its about two people who escape from prison to find that the simple things in their world were taken for granite.
    They realize how amazing the world is and how good it is to be free.


    Metaphorically it symbolizes escaping the box of the normal. Escaping the very binds of what makes everything the same, everything so plain.

    True freedom.



    An awefully beautiful song.

    General CommentSo, it could be about a couple during a financial crisis. One of them says to the other ''Give up everything. Don't think about our problems. I'll be always there for you''. That's just an interpretation.
