lyrics

I saw something from the mountain top today
Didn't look good, didn't look good
Everything that blossoms has to rot one day
It's a simple truth, a simple truth

Kiss me as if Eden were just a glimmer
in your tender mama's eye
Don't forget to live before you die

Glaciers ease themselves into a warming sea
It's down to you, it's down to me
Gather all you love and calm your trembling hands
Forget what you know, learn what you can

Kiss me as if Eden were just a glimmer
in your tender mama's eye
Don't forget to live before you die

All hands on deck there's no time left
to wonder what we could have done
We sail beneath an angry sun
Violent seas are rising
Man and beast and creeping thing
Stand humbled before the fountain of the great deep


Kiss me as if Eden were just a glimmer
in your tender mama's eye
Don't forget to live before you die
