my lyricsbox
He was born in the summer of his 27th year,
Coming home to a place he'd never been before.
He left yesterday behind him
You might say he was born again,
You might say he found a key for every door.

When he first came to the mountains
His life was far away
On the road and hanging by a song.
But the strings already broken
And he doesn't really care,
It keeps changing fast, and it don't last for long.

And the Colorado Rocky Mountain high,
I've seen it raining fire in the sky
The shadows from the starlight are softer than a lullaby.
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado
Rocky Mountain high

He climbed cathedral mountains, he saw silver clouds below,
Saw everything as far as you can see.
And they say that he got crazy once and he tried to touch the sun,
And he lost a friend, but kept the memory.
Now he walks in quiet solitude, the forest and the stream,
Seeking grace in every step he takes,
His sight is turned inside himself, to try and understand,
The serenity of a clear blue mountain lake.

And the Colorado Rocky Mountain high,
I've seen it raining fire in the sky
You can talk to God and listen to the casual reply.
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado)
Rocky Mountain high

Now his life is full of wonder,
But his heart still knows some fear,
Of a simple thing he can not comprehend.
Why they try to tear the mountains down
To bring in a couple more.
More people, more scars upon the land.

And the Colorado Rocky Mountain high,
I've seen it raining fire in the sky
I know he'd be a poor man if he never saw an eagle fly
Rocky Mountain high

The Colorado Rocky Mountain high,
I've seen it raining fire in the sky.
Friends around the campfire and everybody's high
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado
Rocky Mountain high
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado
Rocky Mountain high
