Lyrics

10 O’clock and her life quit going
It wasn’t long til it started snowing
And the end saw the wind really blowing around

Lone bird on a perch nearby
Saw something in her come untied
And then shivered just a bit as she aimed toward the sky

Get down that Matterhorn
What’s wrong with the safe and warm?
What’s wrong with a book and tea at night?
Up high in a friendless wind
Tears frozen upon descent
Get down that Matterhorn again

There’s a handwritten note he wrote
In the pocket of a cold down coat
On the body of the one who has left our world
And in the note there’s a love professed
And some apology about some mess
But she won’t be reading those words too soon

Get down that Matterhorn
What’s wrong with the safe and warm?
What’s wrong with a book and tea at night?
Up high in a friendless wind
Tears frozen upon descent
Get down that Matterhorn again

Up high in a frightening sky
What’s wrong with a quiet night?
Get down that Matterhorn again
