"Mountains Still Asleep" as written by and Damien Jurado....
I stood above the clouds
To see you on the ground
Waving me down

Feel free to lose yourself
I do this all the time
Love is a blinding sight

We are songs to be sung

Treasures of worry here
Your voice was so sincere
I’ve known you my whole life

You told me once before
I should have known it then
Joy is letting it go

We are all mountains still asleep

I heard an echo say
We are all given away
Never to come back
And when we cross the line
We become defined
Broken sound, feedback

Ooh, ooh, ooh (x2)

    General CommentThat has to be David Bazan on harmonies for the "we are all mountains still asleep", anyone?

    Gorgeous song as usual, I'm loving this album, Maraqopa.

    I honestly don't know what these might mean, but I'm hearing themes of our potential if we learn to let go (we are songs to be song/....joy is letting go) as well that we'll never truly understand ourselves until we have some different perspective (above the cloud/...an echo/...cross the line/...sound feeding back).
