~ I Choose The Mountain~ - Howard Simon

The low lands call
I am tempted to answer
They are offering me a free dwelling 
Without having to conquer

The massive mountain makes its move
Beckoning me to ascend
A much more difficult path
To get up the slippery bend

I cannot choose both 
I have a choice to make
I must be wise
This will determine my fate

I choose, I choose the mountain
With all its stress and strain
Because only by climbing
Can I rise above the plain

I choose the mountain 
And I will never stop climbing
I choose the mountain
And I shall forever be ascending

I choose the mountain
