"Small Mountain" as written by Eric Pulido, Paul Alexander, Eric Nichelson, Tim Smith and Mckenzie Smith....
The rise and the fall upon small mountain
Was fair not for all in need
And I with my life has gone
Away from this land of gold

Formed from the seed aligned for all that fortune brings
And all that certain men lay upon it when anger is seen

And it reigns like the others
Giving what all it can
While the days count for nothing
Nothing that one understands

Upon that road I had struggled to find
A way of life that was common for all
And all that runs on the mountain was mine
A way of life that will surely be gone

Poor lands will grow
Among the weeds among the roads
And all are anxious for song and dance
That will sometimes get old

And it reigns like the others
Giving what all it can
While the days count for nothing
Nothing that one understands

Upon that road I had struggled to find
A way of life that was common for all
And all that runs on the mountain was mine
A way of life that will surely be gone

    My Interpretation"The rise and the fall upon small mountain
    Was fair not for all in need
    And I with my life have gone
    Away from this land of gold"

    ->This short but intense relationship failed to meet either of our needs, and my entire reason for living (love) has been exposed as a shallow myth.

    "Formed from the seed aligned for all that fortune brings
    And all that certain men lay upon it when anger is seen"

    ->I entered this relationship in good faith, with a determination to weather any storms we might encounter/ disagreements we would inevitably have...

    "And it reigns like the others
    Giving what all it can"

    ->...and however briefly we'd been together compared with others, and regardless of how much we still had to learn about each other, I was so happy to be part of your life.

    "While the days count for nothing
    Nothing that one understands"

    ->But all the time it meant nothing whatsoever to you.

    "Upon that road I had struggled to find
    A way of life that was common for all
    And all that runs on the mountain was mine
    A way of life that will surely be gone"

    -> I tried my very best to understand you, to gain your trust and respect, to let you know how much I loved you so that we could become closer and have more common ground. But I was doing all the work, all the love was coming from me and that could never be sustained.

    "Poor lands will grow
    Among the weeds among the roads
    And all are anxious for song and dance
    That will sometimes get old"

    -> your lack of interest and love for me inevitably made the relationship deteriorate into mistrust, insecurity and boredom.

    And it reigns like the others
    Giving what all it can
    While the days count for nothing
    Nothing that one understands

    Upon that road I had struggled to find
    A way of life that was common for all
    And all that runs on the mountain was mine
    A way of life that will surely be gone
