"Mountain" as written by and Cat/nascimento Stevens....
Oh, I was
On top of a mountain
Lookin' down
On where I been.
Just like forgotten
It was another world
Livin' in
And I was another girl.
I should've know,
But when in Rome,
And I did know.
But you roll along,
Like a stone,
In a whirlpool.
Do remind me
That it was yesterday
And it can't be changed
Or locked away.
But behind me
And you will find your way
Will be rearranged
You'll get used to change.
Oh...Just like it turn around, it is, it is.
Whoa, lately
In a common thread
Among my friends
Whoa, the thrill is dead.
Come slowly
Then like it was always there
You're drinkin' up
From the golden cup.
I should have known,
But when in Rome,
And I did know.
But perspective is like a light switch,
In the darkest room,.
Whoa, impending doom
Is only I will die
Like a fire fly
Out goes the light.
Always, there'll be a sadder day
And won't you
Remember it that way.
Oh...Just like it turn around, it is, it is.
