Mountain and the Eagle

Words and Music: Koshka (Ekaterina Zvyozdosamtseva) (mka Maya Heath)

I say I need my freedom, you say that I have changed,
We have become like strangers, we only share a name.
But once we laughed together and helped each other grow.
We shared and learned from differences, where did our sharing go?

Like the mountain and the eagle, together we could be
One standing firm upon the earth, the other flying free.
In all the changing seasons, and all the changing times
Both part of one another, each gives the other life.

Why can't we talk together, there's so much left to say?
We can agree to make a peace before we go our ways
There was a time when we were friends and held each others hands
Why must my hand be empty now when you're so close at hand.

Like the mountain and the eagle, together we could be
One standing firm upon the earth, the other flying free.
In all the changing seasons, and all the changing times
Both part of one another, each gives the other life.

We've gone too far for turning if what you say is true.
But not too far for distances that loving can undo
It's not for lack of loving but only different ways
It's just for lack of giving, let's try and mend our ways.

Like the mountain and the eagle, together we could be
One standing firm upon the earth, the other flying free.
In all the changing seasons, and all the changing times
Both part of one another, each gives the other life.

We'll stand together you and I two people(nations) proud and free
Each giving to the other to make a harmony
Our differences like different tunes can make a single song
Apart we're only half the piece, together we are strong.

And I hope we'll grow in kinship together side by side
Each gives the other heart and strength and shields the others right
Like the mountain and the eagle, Like a parent and a child
We'll both be strong within the earth, we'll both be free and wild.

Alternate last verse (SCA specific)
And I hope we'll grow in kingship together side by side
Each gives the other heart and strength and shields the others right
Like the Dragon and the Falcon, Like a parent and a child
We'll both be strong within the earth, we'll both be free and wild.
