"Mountain" as written by Bruce Cockburn and Pd Traditional....
She
She came down
From the mountain
And I
I stood my ground
On the mountain

Like a fire I'm drawn to her lust
I can't run from her but Lord I must
Like a demon I'm drawn to her flame
I'm gonna burn calling her name
I'm gonna burn calling her name

She
She came down
From the mountain
And I
I stood my ground
On the mountain

Like a fire I'm drawn to her lust
I can't run from her but Lord I must
Like a demon I'm drawn to her flame
I'm gonna burn calling her name
I'm gonna burn calling her name

She's got a sweetness about her
That I can't explain
She's got a wonderment about her
That I can't deny
And if we are patient
Then maybe we'll get it straight
On the mountain

Like a fire I'm drawn to her lust
I can't run from her but Lord I must
Like a demon I'm drawn to her flame
I'm gonna burn calling her name
I'm gonna burn calling her name
Oh I'll burn calling her name

    General CommentIt's a good song. It's clearly about someone who he cares for, but...he needs to stay the heck away from her.

    General CommentAbsolutely phenomenal song, I didn't think much of it at first, but on a second listen I took a liking to it.

    It's got a heavy metaphoric kinda element, but it's about someone who's drawn uncontrollably to a girl, and she's going to be very bad for him. He tries to stand his ground but can't resist in the end.

    Song Meaningi believe this song refers to a woman who is wild and restless that refuses to let her guard down every time a man falls for her. she finally comes down off her pedestal("she came down from the mountain") for this guy. when he says, "i stood my ground on the mountain"...i believe it refers to him not giving up on her. And the rest is pretty much right in front of us, he knows that even though she is letting him in, its most likely temporary due to her ways.

    i think this is saying that he knows somewhere deep inside, she wants to change, because she means well but her inner wild child is hard to tame. so he's saying if we are patient we can come to a level ground and be high on love together..
