Lyrics:

I took a bite out of a mountain range
Thought my teeth would break, the mountain did
Let's go, I want to go
All the way to the horizon

I took a drink out of the ocean
And I'm treading water there before I drown
Let's dive, I want to dive
To the bottom of the ocean

Took a ride, I took a ride
I wouldn't go there without you
Let's take a ride, we'll take a ride
I wouldn't leave here without you


I am a mountain
I am the sea
You can't take that away from me
I am a mountain
I am the sea
You can't take that away from me

'Cause you tear us apart
With all the things you don't like
You can't understand that I won't leave
'til we're finished here
And then you'll find out
Where it all went wrong


I wrote a note to the jungle and
They wrote me back that I was never crowned
King of the jungle
So there's an end to my horizon

Took a ride, I took a ride
I wouldn't go there without you
Let's take a ride, we'll take a ride
I wouldn't leave here without you


I am a mountain
I am the sea
You can't take that away from me
I am a mountain
I am the sea

'Cause you tear us apart
With all the things you don't like
You can't understand that I won't leave
'til we're finished here
And then you'll find out
Where it all went wrong


Nothing lasts forever, except you and me
You are my mountain, you are my sea
Love can last forever, between you and me
You are my mountain, you are my sea


I am a mountain
I am the sea
You can't take that away from me
I am a mountain
I am the sea
I am a mountain
I am the sea

Please comment and correct me!

- I'm not so sure about the picking part for the second D at "cause you tear us apart", because it seems that
he's moving his fingers there.

- Also not sure for the D and G chords in the bridge
