Liner Notes: 

Jason: Sometimes we set goals for ourselves and we think that achieving them will "fix things" and make us happy.
Sometimes we're sadly disappointed. This is a tune about not only the support system that will help you reach the summit - but having one that will help you get back down safely.

Roel: Hey Jason! I loved your lyrics and found them to deserve an extra special treatment. I'm sorry it took me so long, but I'm finally ready to share this song. Hope you like it! Smile
P.S. I'm sorry that I sing one sentence wrong (for every rise a fall), I'll correct it as soon as possible)

Lyrics: 

A warrior’s journey starts with one step
Today will be the day that I begin
I will follow through, till I have none left
Along the way I could sure use a friend

I will climb that mountain
I will do it one step at a time
Committed to the goal deep inside my heart
I will climb that mountain
I will do it one step at a time
The finish line moves closer as soon as I start

I trust in my belief, what I intend
And ignore the feelings of fear and doubt
From this distance I can see no end
Learning what bravery is all about

I will climb that mountain
I will do it one step at a time
As each struggle appears I will overcome it
I will climb that mountain
I will do it one step at a time
I need you to be there after I reach the summit

At the top we’ll embrace the moment
And all the dreams realized
We’ll know it can’t stay frozen
And gaze on it with realistic eyes
For everything that goes up, must come down
For every rise, a fall
It’s on the journey back to the ground
When I need you most of all

I will climb that mountain
I will do it one step at a time
As each struggle appears I will overcome it
I will climb that mountain
I will do it one step at a time
I need you to be there after I reach the summit

Very inspiring and majestic! Excellent rhymes. Certainly worthy of a sweeping, grand musical treatment - or a standalone piano/vocal ballad would be really cool too.

Oh Jason, these are great and inspiring lyrics! I'd love to follow Chip Withrows hunches and try a piano/vocal ballad that developes in a sweeping, grand arrangement. I already have ideas for the vocal melody. So, would you please make me your collab on this majestic song? Smile

I like that opening line....he's a warrior. That sets it up so nicely. And there's so much determination in those lines. It builds and then descends as he comes off the mountain. And adding in the element of needing the other person is lovely. Great sentiments. Can't wait to hear Roel's musical wisdom for this!

Absolutely inspiring. I really love the line "It’s on the journey back to the ground
When I need you most of all"
Powerful because not only do we need someone to help us succeed but to be there when we fall. Excellent job on this collab
