Mountains and Trees (Lyrics)

Words and music by Ionne


If I raise you up,

wait for me.

With my last breath revive you,

wait for me.

Wait for me.


Said the mountain to the trees.

Said the mountain to the trees.

Said the mountain to the trees.


If I raise you up,

wait for me.

Put my own heart inside you,

wait for me.

Wait for me.


Said the mountain to the trees,

to the fish beneath the sea,

to the shadow in my dream.


We need you.

We love you.


The forests replied.


And we can't continue.


If I raise you up,

wait for me.

Bid angels walk beside you,

wait for me.

Wait.

Love, shelter, feed, and guide you,

wait for me.

Wait for me.


Said the mountain to the trees,

to the fish beneath the sea,

every creature running free,

to the shadow in my dream.


We need you.

We love you.


The forests replied.


And we can't continue

without you alive.


The wind and the thunder,

they joined the refrain,

till rain fell like teardrops

and washed them away.


If I raise you up

wait for me.

Leave bitterness behind you,

and wait for me.

Wait for me.


Said the mountain to the trees,

to the fish beneath the sea,

to the shadow in my dream.


If I raise you up,

wait for me.


Wait for me.
