lyrics

Afternoon sun setting on your forehead
With the fire in your belly quite recluse
I'm beggin' you, Koma Kulshan, remain dormant
I can barely see you rise from my commute

Your white head tells less your age than elevation
And when you sing the whole wide valley sings along
I find your tears in every nearby bay and basin
Wish I could ask you what is wrong
Shy mountain
My shy mountain
Rise on

You've had your share of lovers long before me
Some have known you as a silent sentinel
Like a distant mother who adores me
You implore me to draw close and be made well

Even folks 'cross Juan de Fuca know your beauty
Though we lose you on the cloudly winter days
You stand with the fragile world we treat so crudely
Yet we approach you unashamed
Shy mountain
My shy mountain
Rise on

Your white head tells less your age than elevation
And when you sing the whole wide valley sings along
I find your tears in every nearby bay and basin
Wish I could ask you what is wrong
Shy mountain
My shy mountain
Rise on
