THE MOUNTAINS OF GOLD AND FOOTHILLS OF OLD  THE MOUNTAINS OF GOLD AND FOOTHILLS OF OLD

I KNOW THEYʼLL ALWAYS BE AROUND AND HERE BY MY SIDE
THEYʼLL NEVER LET ME DOWN  THEYʼRE PART OF MY LIFE

STANDING OVER ME RISING TO THE SKY I OPEN MY ARMS JUST LIKE I CAN FLY

THE MOUNTAINS OF GOLD AND FOOTHILLS OF OLD  THE MOUNTAINS OF GOLD AND FOOTHILLS OF OLD

IʼVE BEEN THINKING IT OVER… MY WHOLE POINT OF VIEW
AND I KNOW IʼVE TOLD HER… TIME HAS COME TO MAKE MY MOVE   IʼVE BEEN DREAMING OF SOMEWHERE… I CAN TAKE ME TO AND I WONʼT BE UNFAIR…. OWE IT TO MYSELF, IʼM LEAVING SOON

TRYING TO KEEP MY HEAD ON STRAIGHT… I DONʼT NEED NO BLUES SOMETIMES IT SEEMS LIKE A LONG WAY… WHAT IʼVE GOT TO DO TRYING TO KEEP MY HEAD ON STRAIGHT…. I DONʼT NEED NO BLUES DONʼT NEED NO HOME AT A HALFWAY… UNDERNEATH THE MOON

OH DONʼT  YOU KNOW… WHATʼS KILLIN’ ME.. DOWN TO  THE BONE… BUT IʼM BREAKIN’ FREE…

LEAVE BEHIND ANY WORRIES… ‘CAUSE THE PRESENTʼS NEW
IʼM TAKING OFF IN A HURRY… MY BAGS ARE PACKED ‘CAUSE IʼM JUST PASSING THROUGH
I SHOWED HER ALL OF MY COLORS… AND EVERY SHADE OF BLUE
AND EVEN THOUGH I LOVE HER… IʼM OUTTA HERE   GONNA LOOSEN UP THE NOOSE

TRYING TO KEEP MY HEAD ON STRAIGHT… I DONʼT NEED NO BLUES  SOMETIMES IT SEEMS LIKE A LONG WAY… WHAT IʼVE GOT TO DO  TRYING TO KEEP MY HEAD ON STRAIGHT…. NO I DONʼT NEED NO BLUES   DONʼT NEED NO HOME AT A HALFWAY… UNDERNEATH THE MOON

ALL – MY – LIFE… IʼVE BEEN RUNNING WILD. SEEMS – LIKE.. FOR SO MANY MILES. DAYS – TO – NIGHTS… I CAN FEEL A PAIN. IN – SIDE… LIKE VENOM IN MY VEINS.

IT FEELS LIKE A SNAKE…. BITE

IT FEELS LIKE A SNAKE…. BITE.     AND I DONʼT WANT TO LOSE… SIGHT

I… SEE.. MY FOOTPRINTS… PASSING ME RIGHT BY…. WHILE.. I WONDER… WHATʼS NAKED TO THE EYE? WHEN IʼM LOOKING. WINDING FROM THE SIDE… MY FOOTPRINTS.. PASSING ME RIGHT BY

UN – DER – NEATH… MY ADRENALINE.
HARD TO-SEE… ITʼS LIKE A LABYRINTH. PUSHED – AND – SHOVED… THE CLOSER THAT I GET.

LIFE – BLOOD… WONʼT LET ME FORGET.

IT FEELS LIKE A SNAKE…. BITE

WHERE – I – GO…. EVERYWHERE IʼVE GONE UN – KNOWN… INTO THE BEYOND. CANʼT – BE – TIRED… NEED-ALL MY ENERGY FOR – THIS-FIRE… THAT BURNS INSIDE OF ME

IT FEELS LIKE A SNAKE…. BITE.     AND I DONʼT WANT TO LOSE… SIGHT

I… SEE.. MY FOOTPRINTS… PASSING ME RIGHT BY…. WHILE.. I WONDER… WHATʼS NAKED TO THE EYE? WHEN IʼM LOOKING. WINDING FROM THE SIDE… MY FOOTPRINTS.. PASSING ME RIGHT BY
