There are always mountains in the distance,

Even if I’ve just climbed one.

There are always mountains in the distance,

Chanting what’s still to be done.

There are always mountains in the distance,

They beckon, they taunt, they call.

There are always mountains in the distance,

On them I’ll stumble and fall.

There are always mountains in the distance,

They frighten the weak, the frail.

There are always mountains in the distance,

Those without courage will bail.

There are always mountains in the distance,

I know that I’m meant to try.

There are always mountains in the distance,

Sometimes I’m not quite sure why.

There are always mountains in the distance,

Noble, majestic and true.

There are always mountains in the distance,

I’m marching towards them… you?
