She was always walking singing to her footsteps
Dirt ditch paths and pine cones
Digging up glass bottles
Rusty springs from feather beds
Old hubcaps on the picket fence
She planted beds of flowers
Stayed outside for hours

In spirit she's drifted to the ocean
All those years of waiting for the water
She’s watching long shadows caught in the tide
But the sunset by the sea is in her mind
The sunset by the sea is in her mind

And she was always hoping to someday leave the mountain
Domestic chores and children
The darkness of the winter
Painting all these mermaids
Wandering to the sea shore
She wanted him to follow but his heart is with the hillside

In spirit she's drifted to the ocean
All those years of waiting for the water
She’s watching long shadows caught in the tide
But the sunset by the sea is in her mind
The sunset by the sea is in her mind

These days you'll find her walking
Singing to the deep sea
But she will always love him
Lost up in the mountains
The sun set in the ocean
Gathering shells and beach glass
Dancing with the rogue waves
Gives her peace of mind
But she will always love him
Lost up in the mountain
Oh she will always love him
Lost up in the mountain
