Damien Jurado Mountains Still Asleep

I stood above the clouds

To see you on the ground

Waving me down

Feel free to lose yourself

I do this all the time

Love is a blinding sun

We are songs to be sung

Treasures of worry here

Your voice was so sincere

I’ve known you my whole life

You told me once before

I should have known it then

Joy is letting it go

We are all mountains still asleep

I heard an echo say

We are all given away

Never to come back

And when we cross the line

We become defined

Broken sound, feeding back
