save a mountain for me lyrics – godley & creme

save me a mountain to climb
save me a river to cross
at midnight the sound of the stockyard trains
wail in the distance and rattle my chains

save me a valley like the one in the distance
save me a canyon to swallow this jail
i wanna stand outside and feel the rain when it falls
breathe the air on the other side of these walls

save a mountain for me
save a mountain for me
it sounds like a choir when the chaingangs shout
save me a mountain for when i get out

save me a desert, just me and the sand
save me a sea to sail
in my heart i know i’m too weak to be strong
i’ve been wasting away in this jail for too long

save a mountain for me
save a mountain for me
it’s like a choir of fallen angels when the chaingangs shout
save me a mountain for when i get out

“has the jury reached a verdict?”
“we have your honour.”
“how does the jury find?”
“we find the defendant guilty.”
“do the defendants have anything to say on their behalf,
before the court pr*nounces sentence?”

save me a mountain to climb
save me a river to cross
at midnight the sound of the stockyard trains
still wail in the distance and rattle my brains

save me a valley like the one in the distance
save me a canyon to swallow this jail
if only i could tie all these dreams together
i could break out of the big house and run forever

save a mountain for me
oh save a mountain for me
it’s like a choir of fallen angels when the chaingangs shout
save me a mountain for when i get out
save a mountain for me
save it, save it
save a mountain for me
it sounds like a choir when the chaingangs shout
save a mountain for me
save a mountain for when i get out
i need a mountain
save a mountain…
