lyrics

I’m looking up not just ahead
I’m looking up not just around
I’m looking up at the stars above
I’m looking up at a mountaintop

I’m looking up stuck on the ground
I’m looking up no way around
I’m looking up but I’m dreaming still
I’m looking up at a rocky hill (don’t rush)

(Chorus)
Those mountaintops are calling me
Out of my mind, out of my head
Those mountaintops are calling me
To know my heart and follow its lead

I’m looking up at a ridgeline choir
I’m looking up at this holy hour
I’m looking up where angels sing
I’m looking up where heavens ring

(Chorus)
Those mountain tops are calling me
Out of my mind, out of my head
Those mountain tops are calling me
To know my heart and follow its lead

I’m looking up not just ahead
I’m looking not just around
I’m looking up at the stars above
I’m looking up at a mountaintop
