about

“I’d like to dedicate this song to my wonderful wife Colleen, who inspired me to write these lyrics and cover one of my favorite Yasunori Mitsuda compositions. Although Singing Mountain was sadly not included in the original release of the game, to me it’s so wintry and ethereal; it always felt like the perfect theme for Death Peak. Such a beautiful and morose, yet hopeful piece of music…I never would have guessed I’d someday turn it into a love song, but hey life's funny like that. I hope you enjoy it.”

lyrics

On top of the singing mountain, the world seems so far below
Look up to the darkened clouds, shrouding footsteps left in the snow
The howl of the mournful wind rings through pathways of frozen earth
For winter can never end in this realm of death and rebirth

High on the mountain peak lies a white solitary tree
As the sun and the stars break free, I can hear you call me home

'Til then I roam on the singing mountain, in search of a dying past
While glimmers of hope are found in the world outside of the glass
You come to this place for solace, and hope for a brighter day
Hold on to our distant promise, as time and space fade away

Lost in the great beyond, I had thought that my life was gone
You brought me to where I belong, in a future all our own, together
