TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN
by Ellen Gennaro 

When you reach the top of the mountain 
I was told the stars would align 
My dreams would come true Love would come too 
And the life I deserved would be mine 

When I reached the top of the mountain 
I sought a higher mountain to climb 
Drunk on success wanting more to possess 
I ignored all of greed's warning signs 

Time passes us by in the wink of an eye 
And the wise learn the meaning of wealth 
The Midas touch doesn't count for much 
If it comes without peace, love and health 
When it comes without peace, love and health 

When I reached the top of the mountain 
My children had lives of their own 
It hurt to discover my man loved another 
And my house was no longer my home 

Time passes us by in the wink of an eye 
And the wise learn the meaning of wealth 
The Midas touch doesn't count for much 
If it comes without peace, love and health 
When it comes without peace, love and health 

I heard a voice at the top of the mountain  
Where I stood weary, lonely and cold  
What does it matter to gain the world 
If the cost is the loss of your soul 
What does it matter to gain the world 
When the cost is the loss of your soul 

Time passes us by in the wink of an eye 
And the wise learn the meaning of wealth 
The Midas touch doesn't count for much 
If it comes without peace, love and health 
The Midas touch doesn't count for much 
Unless it comes bringing peace love and health
