Lyrics

ON THE MOUNTAINSIDE

If I had lived a hundred million years ago
I would be happier, I'd learn to let things go
Until the ice age hit - but, what's a little snow?
I would be happier a hundred million years ago

And though it could be lonely I would have a home
A cave of rocks tucked in the mountain stone
There'd be no rent to pay - my heart, my own
I would be happier: I would have a home

And though we may have known each other then
There'd be no words to measure starts and ends
I'd carry firewood when you'd touch my hand
We'd be much happier then...

We'd raise our children on the mountainside
We'd learn that love can always break you inside
Until the day we'd crawl away to die
I would be happier
I should be happier

If I had lived a hundred million years ago
I would be happier, I'd hold to what I know
And you'd be proud of all the changes I'd show
I would be happier a hundred million years ago...
