lyrics

There's spirits in this valley
Ancient treasures buried deep
A million footsteps echoed
A thousand trembling feet
You told me of a landscape
A patchwork bathed in gold
I said you must be dreaming
And I curled up in the snow

I can be a Sherpa for your heart
I'll play the silent part
I'll keep you warm and fed
I'll never leave

In a blizzard battered hovel
That's where I like to stay
Sir Edmund at the front door
But no one's here today
Two fjordland crested penguins
Lift you up like angels
Far beyond horizons
Past fallen friends and strangers

I can be a Sherpa for your heart
I'll play the silent part
I'll keep you warm and fed
I'll never leave

The sound of running water
The scent of mountain sage
Has blown across these ice flows
Since the mesolithic age
But weather never moved me
Except to turn my head down
From your favourite ancient poetry
Carved into the valley

I can be a Sherpa for your heart
I'll play the silent part
I'll keep you warm and fed
I'll never leave
