Every Mountain
Lyrics
In a perfect world
There?d be food on every table
And soup in every pot
But until that day
We got to fight for every scrap
Like it or not
The path I got to walk gets harder every day
Rent gets higher but not the pay
Sometimes I wonder if I can keep it up
But I got to believe I can make it

Every mountain
Is just another hill to climb
Every mountain
Is one step closer to the sky
Every mountain
Is just another hill to climb
Every mountain
Is one step closer to the sky


On a perfect day
Every voice would be heard
Every child would laugh
We can sit down and wait
Or we can take up the fight
And follow the path
Every time you think it?s coming to an end
The hill gets steeper around the bend
Sometimes I wonder if I can keep it up
But I got to believe I can make it

Every mountain
Is just another hill to climb
Every mountain
Is one step closer to the sky
Every mountain
Is just another hill to climb
Every mountain
Is one step closer to the sky

One step closer
One step closer
