the last frontier lyrics – andrew peterson

why don’t the mountains make me cry no more?
they don’t sing the way they did before
they’re just piles of stone
as dead as bones
like corpses on a field of war
and they just don’t make me cry no more

and the highway’s like an old sad song
people moving through their lives alone
on the run from grace
from place to place
like fugitives without a home
and the highway’s like an old sad song

and my heart is black as coal
it’s been mined and there ain’t no gold
it’s so dark in there
but i don’t care
i will lay down in the this empty hole
where my heart is black as coal

and oh, there is nowhere left to go from here
i have fallen past the last frontier
but at the bottom of this well i hear you breathing

love below me
love around me
love above me
love has found me
love has found me here

so lay me down
oh, lay me down in a field of golden
lay me down
oh, lay me down in a field of golden
lay me down
(love above, love below me)
oh, lay me down in a field of gold and green
