lyrics

Reach

I’m looking for a mountain peaking high
If I could only be where the mountains reach the sky
If I could only reach you
I could only reach
I could only reach you
Then I could only reach you
I could only reach you
I could only reach you, oh…

But it’s just too far…

See these bones have found their resting place
What’s left at stake
Evades me
It’s strange
But it takes my breath away
I hesitate,
I instinctively know that death awaits
I’m left awake inside
But my body is like a heavy weight
My debt is great
And my life is so regretful
I stare my failures in the face
And each one’s just as dreadful
The thought just makes my head full
And I’ve had my fill of sorrow
If I could reach that mountain in the distance
By tomorrow
Then this cup that’s hard to swallow
Would somehow go down easy
But a picture of your perfection’s
What I’m left with just to tease me
I concede that it’s not easy
To see you at this great distance
Through all the mist and fog
Amidst it all
I must’ve missed it
I kissed it
Slowly goodbye
Across of a lifetime of mistakes
If I manage to make it to you
You can wipe it all away
But on my way
My heart it starts to give
With so much left to go
I’m left alone
Within my final moments
“Purify my soul”

I’m looking for a mountain peaking high
If I could only be where the mountains reach the sky
If I could only reach you
I could only reach
I could only reach you
Then I could only reach you
I could only reach you
I could only reach you, oh…

But then you reached me…

And I can’t tell what happened to me first
My universe collapsed
And I gasped
As I fell into the earth
In human words
It’s like you caught me on the way down
But in reality
There’s no worthy word I can say now
I was face down
But you came to lift my head
I assumed I had to find you
But you found me here instead
When you walked the ground I tread
And I recognized and turned to you
You poured out your compassion
On a selfish undeserving fool
You’re merciful
Beyond what I imagined
When I searched for you
You’re vertical
Above me
And nothing short of a perfect view
I heard the truth
Then I saw it with my own eyes
I marched across a foreign land
Where the flesh erodes and souls fly
And I met a man that knows mine
Beyond how man can know me
Who with graciousness and justice
Holds the only throne worth holding
And a name that’s worth extolling
Is the one upon my lips
On a mountain high above the ground
Where earth and heaven kiss

I’m looking for a mountain peaking high
If I could only be where the mountains reach the sky
If I could only reach you
I could only reach
I could only reach you
Then I could only reach you
I could only reach you
I could only reach you, oh…
