Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I don’t know where you are
I don’t know if you still care
I only know that I miss you so
I’ve searched for you ev’rywhere

[Verse 2]
I know that I’m to blame
That’s why we’ve drifted apart
But if you knew what I’m going through
You would forgive me sweetheart

[Chorus]
I’d climb the highest mountain if I knew that when I climbed that mountain I’d find you
I’d swim the deepest river if I knew that when I swam that river I’d find you
Without you dear, my life means nothing to me no matter where you are that’s where I want to be
I’d pray to get to Heaven ‘Cause I know that I got Heaven I’d find you


I’d climb the highest mountain if I knew that when I climbed that mountain I’d find you
I’d pay the price of sorrow if I only knew that some tomorrow I’d find you There’s not a single thing that I wouldn’t dare if I knew that you would be waiting for me there
I’d give my greatest treasure
If I knew by giving up that treasure I’d find you
