"Lullaby (Mountain)" as written by and Klausener Debutte....
Lullaby (Mountain) by The Acorn
I, I will wash over you
I know your heart is true
Little Mountain of mine
?Cause the sun set down on me
You turn your head and slowly start to breathe
Like the common bonds on carbon, buried deep
I?m the shadow of the long forgotten dream
But I, I will wash over you
I know your heart is true
Little mountain of mine
But every word I wrote left incomplete
And the promises I never got to keep
Though you toes grow colder as you sleep
The blood runs through your heart with every beat
?Cause I, I will wash over you
I know your heart is true
Little Mountain of mine
I, I will wash over you
I know your heart is true
Little Mountain of mine

    General CommentI've read that the whole album is about the life of lyricist/singer/guitarist Rolf Klausener's mother, Gloria Esperanza Montoya (hence, Glory Hope Mountain). The whole song is a new mother's lullaby, in which the little mountain takes on a double meaning. It is the enormous significance of the child, but it is also the mother's family name. The song affirms the everlasting commitment of a mother to her child.

    If you love the singer, she is not actually part of The Acorn, but Casey Mecija of Ohbijou.

    General Comment...I could listen to this all day..

    I wrote 'wash' because that's what I've seen written elsewhere
    but I hear 'watch'

    what do you all hear, 'wash' or 'watch'?

    General CommentIt says "watch" in the liner notes plus it fits with the lullaby theme.

    And yeah, I definitely agree! It's my favorite track off of the album and definitely one of the most beautiful songs ever written!

    General CommentOh and I meant to say, I thought it was "note I wrote" not "word I wrote".

    General CommentI'm really bad with interpreting lyrics... but this is her saying goodbye, right?

    She is leaving this life, but she will always be there and inside of him...?
