Verse 
   F                                         C 
Today, I climbed the highest mountain I have ever climbed 
      F                              C 
And I turn, to look at ruins I had left behind 
    F                      C                    F 
And you, where were you so far removed from any truth 
  Am               Bb 
I lost you, didn't I? 
                            F 
But first I think I lost myself 

      F                               C 
Children, then and forever locked in a memory 
    F                                          C 
Olden, that mirror searching for some kind of certainty 
     F                         C 
That you were just the same as everyone 
                F 
But you were wrong 
        Am              Bb 
And it hurt you, didn't it? 
                 F 
All you couldn't be

Verse F C I tried to hold on to some kind of dignity F C Too long I waded through a vast and endless sea F C F Thinking, I could find the secret there within Am Bb But I gave up, didn't I?
