I know why you went out east
I know the Brooklyn streets run pretty deep
And city lights beat counting sheep
As night falls in the belly of the Beast
So too much dreaming will wreck your sleep
You're like a wooden ship on high seas
Alone and in for heavy weather
Thinking we might be together still
You know I love you better
The mountain loves you better

The street's a grove of steel trees
The signals shift like leaves upon the breeze
And all the crowds are winding streams
Waters even blacker than it seems
So shiver in your ugly sweater
You know that we could be together still
The forest loves you better
The river loves you better

Make believe that it's all sweet
The air you breathe, the concrete at your feet
And your career path's pretty steep
What view at the summit will you reap?
Skyscrapers won't last forever
You know that we should be together still
The mountain loves you better

So burn your midnight lamp and reach
For gold rings in that distant empire
One day the Beast will spit you on this beach
From the secrets that you keep we'll build a fire
And it won't matter about the weather
You and me will be together till
You know I love you better
The river loves you better
The mountain loves you better
