Nightmare Mountain

Janis Ian

Wish you would have told me
what was wrong with you
Made mountains out of valleys
and took away the view
Wish you would have told me
Told me there and then
I never would have done it if I knew
it meant losing you

So many dreams forgotten
in the twinkling of an eye
Dreams of unborn children
used to glitter in our sky
Now there's only Nightmare Mountain,
grown too high to climb
Never would have done it if I'd known
that it meant losing home

There's lots of other chances
now that I've got lots of time
to search out these romances
that once occupied my mind

I wish you would have told me
before this mountain grew
I never would have built it if I knew
that it meant losing you
It meant losing you
