"Mountains on the Moon" as written by Karen Ruth Staley and Jack White....
The Montana night is still
There's a coyote on the hill
Howlin' at the diamond sky, but no one hears
There are no answers in the stars
Only questions in my heart
So I count mountains on the moon
Through my lonely tears
Countin' mountains on the moon
Sleep, it never comes too soon
I'd climb the highest one for you
Countin' mountains, mountains on the moon
Sometimes in perfect light
Those mountain tops come into sight
Almost close enough to touch
Like dreams of you
And if you pass this canyon dear
I left an echo for you there
Hopin' you'd come back again
Like echoes always do
Countin' mountains on the moon
Sleep, it never comes too soon
I'd climb the highest one for you
Countin' mountains, mountains on the moon
Countin' mountains, mountains on the moon
