For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11


V1
The mountain was higher than I could’ve dreamed
And the higher I rose, the more my heart screamed
And I slipped my hand into your promising grip
Never believing that you’d let go of it

I’ve heard rumors of landslides
In the world of rocky dreams
But I never believed
That would be you and me

Your words once so perfect
You tone so sincere
You wouldn’t believe
The pain left to bear
Ch.
I’ve climbed every mountain
I’ve sailed every sea
I’ve soured every sun
That has set upon me
I’ve fallen in ice caps
I’ve dived into sand
grabbed every false smile
And every wrong hand
You wouldn’t believe the hell I’ve been through
All failed attempts to get over you
V2.
I was forced to borrow strength from my very own tears
And I dwelled in a river of a hundred cursed years
And the water I laid in resembled your eyes
And that look that they wore
When you rejected my tries

You have ice in the depth of you tropical breath
You have poison behind every word you’ve ever said
And I toasted to your voice with my vulnerable soul
Right before you left my heart with no home

Ch.
I’ve climbed every mountain
I’ve sailed every sea
I’ve soured every sun
That has set upon me
I’ve fallen in ice caps
I’ve dived into sand
grabbed every false smile
And every wrong hand
You wouldn’t believe the hell I’ve been through
All failed attempts to get over you
V3.
You set the same fire that burnt me within
You blew the same wind that tortured my skin
Your laugh was the venom that boiled my blood
You’re the murder of my laughter, the murder of love.
Ch.
I’ve climbed every mountain
I’ve sailed every sea
I’ve soured every sun
That has set upon me
I’ve fallen in ice caps
I’ve dived into sand
grabbed every false smile
And every wrong hand
You wouldn’t believe the hell I’ve been through
All failed attempts to get over you
