"HIGH NOON"

Verse 1
Morning on a mountain trail, like I always said I'd do.
Might end up skipping breakfast, break a sweat, get a bruise or two.
But keep up the old stamina, it's worth it for the view.
Yeah.

Verse 2
Sure enough, when the summit wind starts blowing through my hair,
Morning gone, midday is on, can't recall a single care.
It's always worth the time, -
Always worth the climb, yeah.

Chorus 1
I've been lost in my wanderings in the valley down below,
And it's cost me some peace of mind in the things that I should know.
But from way up here it's crystal clear, my receiver's back in tune,
And I'm feeling like a butterfly squeezing out of its cocoon,
To love this day, to hear You say You're coming for me soon.
High Noon!

Verse 2
Mighty ocean in slow motion echoes a soaring creature's call.
In the rolling seas and swaying trees breathes the Highest of us all.
And all the sights and sounds down on the ground, and the confining walls,
And all the deafening noise seem like children's toys.

Bridge 1
I've got to remember this perspective
Next time I get introspective
And all my work seems ineffective.
Can't lose sight of my objective-You! You!

Chorus 2
I've been so lost in my wandering in the valley down below,
And it's cost me some peace of mind in the things that I should know.
But from way up here it's crystal clear, heart to heart we can commune,
And I'm feeling like a butterfly squeezing out of the ol' cocoon,
To love this day, to hear You say that You're coming for me soon.
High Noon!

Bridge 2
Help me remember this perspective
Next time I get introspective
And all my work seems ineffective.
Can't lose sight of my objective-You! Yeah, You!

Interlude
I've been lost!
And it's cost!
I've been lost!
And it's cost!

Chorus 3
But from way up here it's crystal clear, my receiver's back in tune,
And I can see Your hand more steady than the earth, the sun, the moon,
And I love this day, love to hear You say that You're coming for me soon.
High Noon!
High Noon!
It's High Noon!
