Lyrics

Unchained Melody version:

This is quite absurd
But still it must be true
All these songs we've heard
Are sung from me to you

Poetry is trite
But still I want to rhyme
Stay with me tonight
If you have any time

I will follow
Over the mountain
Over the mountain
Where you run

I will follow
Over the mountain
Over the mountain
To the sun

City folk will scoff
And so I must agree
If this gets us off
Then we should let it be

Deep within our brains
There is a prisoner
Let's undo his chains
And let our fate occur

I will follow
Over the mountain
Over the mountain
Where you run

I will follow
Over the mountain
Over the mountain
To the sun

Sad one
Show me your smile
Show me your heart
Show me your pain
I can feel too
Show me your heart

I will follow
Over the mountain
Over the mountain
Where you run

I will follow
Over the mountain
Over the mountain
To the sun

SIR version:

You don't need to fear
I'll never bother you
I just wanna be near
And do what I can do
I will hold my own
And look out for myself
You can do your thing
And I'll be there to help

I will follow over the mountain
Over the mountain
Where you run
I will follow over the mountain
Over the mountain
To the sun

Come what ever may
I'll never leave your side
Even if you fall
I'll never run and hide
I will fight for you
Until the bitter end
That is how I am
I hope you understand

I will follow over the mountain
Over the mountain
Where you run
I will follow over the mountain
Over the mountain
To the sun

Dear one, give me a chance
Give me some hope
Give me some love
I can be strong
I can be strong

I will follow over the mountain
Over the mountain
Where you run
I will follow over the mountain
Over the mountain
To the sun

I will follow over the mountain
Over the mountain
Where you run
I will follow over the mountain
Over the mountain
To the sun

Alone IX: The Make Believe Years version:

You may break my back
And you may step on me
Push me in a crack
But I will always be
I will never die
And I will want your genes (?)
You will wonder why
You still can't hear my screams

I will follow
Over the mountain
Over the mountain
Where you run
I will follow
Over the mountain
Over the mountain
To the sun

I will wait for you
And I will always love
Whatever you do
You are my god above
Someday you will see
And you will come to me
I will know your kiss
And will .... (?)

I will follow
Over the mountain
Over the mountain
Where you run
I will follow
Over the mountain
Over the mountain
To the sun

See me I am grown up
I am so tall
I am so strong
How did I learn
How did I die

I will follow
Over the mountain
Over the mountain
Where you run
I will follow
Over the mountain
Over the mountain
To the sun

I will follow
Over the mountain
Over the mountain
Where you run
I will follow
Over the mountain
Over the mountain
To the sun
