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

    My InterpretationI'm surprised that nobody mentioned the sexual connotations in the lyrics. At least to me, I definitely get a sexual vibe, especially from the lines:

    And watch you swallow me
    ...
    I feel you in my knees
    Say you'll come in soon

    Seems a little explicit to me.. about getting lost in love/lust in the moment. But not necessarily in an uncaring way..
