Lyrics

On The Mountain

Written By: Alan Plaep

Falling down is easy if you've never been too high
Standing up is hard if you've never even tried
And on the mountain that's where I want to die
All alone with nothing but the pine trees and the sky

The evil in my heart feels good sometimes
Even though I know it can't be right
And by the river that's where I want to sleep
Listening to the water, dreaming of the sea

On and on and on I go but never seem to find
A reason for my struggle or a purpose in this life
And on the mountain that's where I want to die
All alone with nothing but the pine trees and the sky

Reno

Written By: Alan Plaep

It's a long way to Reno
And there's no rain
Don't know why I'm going
Don't know why I stayed

The mountains around me are lonely
The city below me is cold
The lights on the freeway
Disappear so slow

And I need you to miss me
A thousand miles away
I need you to love me
No matter what I say

It's a long way to Reno
And there's no rain

Miles Traveled

Written By: Alan Plaep

Miles traveled
Gone for days now
Nowhere bound
Headed north maybe
Get there someday
Then turn around

And she cries for him every single night
Memories kill but they don't make nothing right
And she sleeps listening to the rain falling down

Hopped a train
In Idaho
Rode to the coast
And as the sun sets
Does he love her
He don't know

She can feel him
In the morning
But the bed is cold
Who's gonna love him
Who's gonna hold him
When he grows old
