Always Reaching
(a.k.a. Taller than the Highest Mountain)

~music and lyrics by Skye Pixton

I wanna stand taller than the highest mountain
Surer than the rolling seas
I wanna be stronger than the ocean tide
gentle as a breeze
I wanna be steady like an oak tree:
bend when I need to sway
I wanna live like there's no tomorrow
but for more than just today

I wanna be sweeter than spring flowers
clean as a mountain stream
I wanna be humble like a child
and wistful as a dream
I wanna be sexy like wild nectar
but pure as the fallen snow
I wanna be mystery and shadow
and the only one you really know

Take my hand... you'll never stand alone
we could live in a dream but then we could always go back home

I wanna be grounded like the forrests
bright-eyed as the sun
I wanna see clouds with silver linings
and have hope behind every one
I wanna be clear about my future
as if I had a crystal ball
I wanna have peace about my past
as if I understood it all

Take my hand... you'll never stand alone
There are no guarantees what I'll be, but always reaching
Take my hand... the world is all our own
We could live in a dream but then we could always go back home

I wanna be part of something greater
to know exactly where I stand
I wanna have spirit like wild horses
but have a calm and gentle hand
I wanna soar like an eagle
I wanna sing like a bird

Take my hand... you'll never stand alone
There are no guarantees what I'll be, but always reaching
Take my hand... the world is all our own
We could live in a dream but then we could always go back home
