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 CommentI actually think this song is more about being in a relationship with someone where they both hold their own. She being a mountain and he being the sea. Two very very strong things coming together. But even though she's very strong and does her own thing, when he leaves, she wants to follow, but is not certain he wants her to and needs that assurance. She knows he has to go away but intends on holding onto him until he does and at the same time she also realizes she really should continue to hold her own, go away and be her own person without him. Even still she wants him tell her to stay with him. This is so amazingly touching for me right now, because I am in an identical situation. I just love it.
