about

A combination of forthright, playful, introspective and assertive lyrics, and sound that’s influenced by alternative rock and grunge music of the early 90’s, coupled with the affinity for human imperfection inherent to the spirit of rock and roll, Mountains And You present their debut EP, “Amateurism”.

Track Name: Jet Black
you call it melancholic
and ominous
but i think of it as
optimistic and beneficial
my idea of happiness
my feel-good outfit
that lifts my mood
on a gloomy monday afternoon

so come on come on
take my hand
let’s run away
to a place i know
where everything is
painted jet black
it’s a different kind of beautiful

jet black this
jet black that
jet black everything
it’s not just my aesthetic
it’s my personality
an expression of power
a solid state of mind
where I am
invincible

so come on come on
take my hand
let’s run away
to a place i know
where everything is
painted jet black
it’s a different kind of beautiful

jet black this
jet black that
jet black everything
jet black feeling
jet black personality
jet black this
jet black that
jet black everything
jet black state of mind
jet black way of life
Track Name: The Park
i was out strolling
in the park
that’s when i saw this
beautiful girl
with hazel eyes and
a heart-shaped face
we locked eyes and
exchanged smiles

my world
came to a halt
when i noticed her
adorable dog

i said hi my
name is jimmy
do you mind if i
pet your dog
she said not at all
her name is doodle
she’s a 9-year-old
miniature poodle

my world
came to a halt
when i petted her
adorable dog

a simple round of
conversation
led to a delightful
sensation
we took a walk
along the river i
admit i couldn’t stop
staring at her

my world
came to a halt
i couldn’t help it
it was all her fault

i was out strolling
in the park
that’s when i saw this
beautiful girl
with hazel eyes and
a heart-shaped face
i knew i was in love
Track Name: I Feel Free
something that i felt
today a feeling
that was lost
in the scheduled life
that clogged up my
mind and dulled
my thoughts
it feels refreshing to be
out there in the sun
a change of place
a change of space
was just what i needed

i feel free
free among the
unfamiliar faces i see
around me
i feel free
free amid the
structures that seem to
touch the sky
i feel free
free on the busy
subway trains
on the lively
streets unknown
above the river and
beneath the trees
i feel free

i love it when i wander
through this place
without a plan
changing landscapes
and new encounters
it’s like a breath of
fresh air i don’t mind
the heat nor do i
mind the cold
‘cause all i care
about right now is
how fucking good
i feel
Track Name: Sorry State of Affairs
too much talk
not enough
communication
too many dreams
not enough
action
too many regrets
not enough happiness
to share
too much hatred
not enough
compassion

it’s a sorry
state of affairs
it’s a sorry
state of affairs
it’s a sorry
state of affairs

too much judgement
not enough
acceptance
too much pretense
not enough
honesty
too many problems
not enough people
who care
too much violence
not enough love
Track Name: Dreamer
hey you
here we go again
hit me as hard
as you can
tear me down
rip me apart
break my bones
but you can’t ever
break my heart
i may stand
no chance in the fight
but you’ll be dumbfounded
when i attack
ask me who i am
all i can tell you
is that

i’m a dreamer
a misfit
a believer
i won’t back down
i’m a fighter
a dark horse
a survivor
i will take you on

look me
in the eye
do you see my
flaming soul
or feel my stubborn heart
that seeks hope
in a hopeless cause
i have seen the
depths of hell
these battle scars have got
stories to tell
ask me who i am
all i can tell you
is that

i’m a dreamer
a misfit
a believer
i won’t back down
i’m a fighter
a dark horse
a survivor
i will take you on

i’m a dreamer
i’m a dreamer
i’m a dreamer
i’m a dreamer
