I will be queen of the mountain on high
Oh how I’ve climbed, how I’ve climbed
There’s nothing that can come between you and I
For this frozen kingdom is mine

But then, avalanche
Is that why you worried so
Avalanche: just one slip and now watch it go
Avalanche: under each rock is a precipice
Under each rock

I was once queen of the mountain on high
But I’ve lost my place in the sky
Someone else sits and admires the view
While I tremble to think it was mine

But then, avalanche…..

We fall we fall we fall, but we are still breathing, what for?
We fall we fall we fall, yet we are still breathing, what for?
What for? When the avalanche comes to take it away
When the avalanche will come to take you away from me

We fall we fall we fall

A new snow was falling when I raised my head
The old wounds had melted away
I’ll find a green valley where I’ll make my home
A refuge away from the avalanche
