Jump, Little Children - Mountains So Grand lyrics

I have risen in the darkened valley,
The one who in my dreams
Of twilight did stand.
And I am off by the moonlight,
The break of the morning,
I am leaving the mountains,

The mountains so grand.

I strayed to a place far from my home,
In search of a lover that I might adore.
And my heart it was aching,
For the forest so gentle,
But my longing for love was with me even more

And many the comings I passed my eye over
And many the moment I emptied the well
Of beauty returned.

They sit with their smiles
And eyes filled with laughter
But sure in the end
With myself waiting still

But when I returned to the forest I found you in
In valleys overshadowed
By mountains so grand,

And I pray that god's angels
Ever protect you
After their own sanctitude,
And I pray to keep safe
Your little white heart.

And now I'm stationed
Where the waterways are braking,
Far from the forest,
A love and to side.
And when I return,
It's to leave me to my dear one,
In my lands in the mountain,

The mountains so grand.
