When The Mist Rolls Off The Mountains

When The Mist Rolls Off The Mountain

On the prairie plains, where I got my name, where I left my family
When I headed East, to big NYC with a suitcase and a dream
But it get’s you down when you’re not around the ones who love you most
So, I packed my bags, I headed north a ways, further up the coast

And, when the mist rolls off the mountains now
It’s pretty as it sounds
And, there’s a light that comes inside us
From all it surrounds
And, oh you know I miss you so, every single day
But, it’s easier to love you when I’m so far away

Now, a mother’s love is the kind of stuff
You never think you’ll lose
But, as the saying goes, “that’s life.” Well, I suppose
‘Cause I’m not the one to choose
But, when she’s laying there in intensive care
All I can do is cry
And wonder if it’s better without me by her side

And, when the mist rolls off the mountains now
It’s pretty as it sounds
And, there’s a light that comes inside us
From all it surrounds
And, oh you know I miss you so, every single day
But, it’s easier to love you when I’m so far away

And that’s fine, she says, at least you know I’m with you all the time
Yeah, that’s fine, she says, at least you know I’m with you
Oh, oh, oh
And, it’s hard to stay, but it’s hard to go
and it’s hard to follow your heart
when your heart doesn’t know

And, when the mist rolls off the mountains now
It’s pretty as it sounds
And, there’s a light that comes inside us
From all it surrounds
And, oh you know I miss you so, every single day
But, it’s easier to love you when I’m so far away
Oh, oh, oh
