How to climb a mountain

Let’s climb this mountain together, but separately
Won’t be seeing each other ’til we stop at the top
You go from the other side, I start here

Thanks to civilization, we can use words
Even telecommunication was invented
But, it doesn’t take long to find out how useless these things are

This is not just a game
No worries for the end
Let’s remember, we don’t have a time limit to commit to
Slowly, carefully, we climb this mountain

Let’s make some noise together, but separately
In case of wild fire which takes us higher
So don’t run away, rather get close, don’t you think it’s beautiful?

Let’s climb this mountain together, but separately
Won’t be seeing each other ’til we stop at the top
So don’t look down at the bottom, you’ll fall and might see some tears

It would not have been the same
If I didn’t know you were there
Let’s remember, we don’t have a time limit to commit to
Slowly, carefully, we climb this mountain

Clearly, you’ll see why we need to meet again
