verse 1: 
              C                               F          C 
Last night a big, cold mountain raised up outside my door 
                                             F          C 
Tall as the clouds it stretches, never once seen before 
                Am               Am/G#    F        C  
I fear should I try to round it I'd be forever lost 
                   C    G    F  
Somewhere by that big, cold mountain covered in frost 

verse 2: 
There's one million words for heartache, one million names for pain 
One million tears collecting in rivers as fallen rain 
To cascade in streams and wander aimlessly to the  sea 
To drift with the tides and the currents indefinitely

verse 3: 
Last night I braved the mountain, tackled its wintry peak 
Where standing an icy gust lifted me off my feet 
In lover's arms it held me suspended in time and space 
Then the cold mountain tossed me down upon the rocks at its base

verse 4: 
These days I've grown accustomed to the mountain outside my door 
Which, like the wolves, has circled; the path leading round is no more 
I fear should I try to cross it, I'd be forever lost 
Somewhere on that big, cold mountain covered in frost.
