Lyrics

Took a bite out a mountain range
Thought my teeth would break them and did
Lets go I wanna go
All the way to the horizon

Took a drink out the ocean and
Treading water there before I drown
Lets dive I wanna dive
To the bottom of the ocean

Took a ride I took a ride
I wouldnt go there without you
Lets take a ride we'll take a ride
I wouldnt leave here without you

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

You tear us apart with all the things you dont 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 
It wrote me back but I was never crowned 
King of the jungle so 
There’s an end to my horizon

Took a ride I took a ride
I wouldnt go there without you
Lets take a ride we'll take a ride
I wouldnt leave here without you

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

You tear us apart with all the things you dont 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
