You call me a mountain
And I call you the sea
I'll stand tall and certain
And watch you swallow me

You can move me if you want to
You can move a mountain, you can move a mountain
You can move me if you want to
You can move everything, you can move everything

I will grow my own trees
While you follow the moon
I feel you in my knees
Say you'll come in soon

You can move me if you want to
You can move a mountain, you can move a mountain
You can move me if you want to
You can move everything, you can move everything

But then one day you'll go away, but I will too
But until then, oh my darling friend, well I will hold
Yes I will hold, yes I will hold
Yes I will hold on to you

You can move me if you want to
You can move a mountain, you can move a mountain
You can move me if you want to
You can move everything, you can move everything

    General Commentoh my gosh, I love Ingrid's newest cd! This song is great. The meaning is really obvious but the imagery is fantastic! whoever this is about, she sure has feelings for this guy. It probably isn't working out, plus he's leaving
    "Then one day, you'll go away,
    but I will too.
    But until then, oh, my darling friend,
    well I will hold,
    yes I will hold,
    yes I will hold,
    yes I will hold on to you."
    He may be leaving, but her feelings aren't going to change anytime soon. I think it's like she's leaving the ball in his court. like they may not have a relationship going on right now, but certainly if he gave her the word, he'd move her mountain in a heartbeat.
    What an amazing song.
