Somewhere In Montana

Somewhere in Montana, in the shadow of a mountain,
I looked up and saw the brightest star shine its light on me.
For a moment in my lifetime all the world stood still before me
   and I felt your arms around me with the touch of a mountain breeze.

With a midnight song, I will come back home, to you.

Somewhere in Montana, where the wild call goes unnoticed,
I could feel myself get stronger like a flower on the hill.
Walking with the spirit of the land and all its power,
I could see your eyes before me and a promise to fulfill.

With a midnight song, I will come back home, to you.

Somewhere In Montana, where the eagle lives in silence,
I stood tall by a hidden canyon and I echoed out your name.
All the years were broken when I looked out in the darkness
   where my words of love were spoken to you, and always will remain.

With a midnight song, I will come back home, to you.

The mountains and the river, from the sky to the summer meadow,
Life is seen in all its mystery of how it all began.
Whatever makes me whisper when I hold you close beside me,
I believe your are the promise from the maker of this land.

With a midnight song, I will come back home, to you.

Somewhere in Montana....
