Song Description

Climbing a mountain is the metaphor for the journey of life...

Lyrics

Copyright  by Ali Matthews (SOCAN) 2000

There?s an ache in my back and dirt in my sandals
On a road that is rugged and steep
But there?s no looking back - it?s too much to handle
All the promises I didn?t keep
So I?ll climb through the night, and I?ll look for the light
And I?ll follow the stars in the sky
And I never will stop till I?m up at the top
Up on Hunger Mountain

I have a heart that?s in need of some mending
And dreams that are weary and old
There?s a longing inside that seems never-ending
The yearning that burns in my soul
But my vision is clear and my destiny near
And my footing is steady and sure
It?s a journey but still, I will soon drink my fill
Up on Hunger Mountain

Your words are a lamp to my feet and a light to my path
Though darkness surrounds me, your love is the wind at my back

I know that my pockets are filled up with treasures
From a world I keep trying to leave
I have plenty of fear and I?ve pride beyond measure
And a heart that I wear on my sleeve
But, the view from the peak is the moment I seek
So I?ll pray for the strength to go on
From the valley below, I cannot help but go
Up on Hunger Mountain
