Standing on a mountain looking down on a city

The way I feel is a doggone pity

Teardrops fallin' down a mountainside

Many times I've been here, many times I've cried

We used to be so happy when we were in love

High on a mountain of love

Night after night I'm a-standing here alone

Weepin' my heart out till cold gray dawn

Prayin' that you're lonely and you come here too

Hoping just by chance that I'll get a glimpse of you

Tryin' hard to find you, somewhere up above

High on a mountain of love

A mountain of love, a mountain of love, you should be ashamed

We used to be a mountain of love

But you just changed your name

Way down below there's a half a million people

Somewhere there's a church with a big tall steeple

Inside a church there's an altar filled with flowers

Wedding bells are ringin' and they shoulda been ours

That's why I'm so lonely, my dreams gone above

High on a mountain of love

A mountain of love, a mountain of love, you should be ashamed now

Used to be a mountain of love

But you just changed your name

Way down below there's a half a million people

Somewhere there's a church with a big tall steeple

Inside a church there's an altar filled with flowers

Wedding bells are ringin' that shoulda been ours

That's why I'm so lonely, dream gone above

High on a mountain of love

High on a mountain of love

High on a mountain of love

High on a mountain of love

High on a mountain of love

look up the signs you need to on lifeprint.com but this is an interpretation I found very beautiful to compliment this beautiful work of literature.


HERE NOW MOUNTAIN, LOOK(point ‘look’ down)
I FEEL NOW AWFUL SADNESS(slowly)—(or perhaps use the sign for JOKING with a face of annoyance and disgust)
CRY, MOUNTAIN(only instead of using the crumble sign ‘CRY’ down the mountain)
BEFORE I CRY HERE, NOW(double to indicate ‘TODAY’) I CRY.
WE(hand shape ‘K’ as if pointing to audience, etc. and yourself’) BEFORE HAPPY(exaggerated)

I hope that inspires you a a little if you need some help. If you need more help, please do pm me. When I learned ASL I mostly started on learning music in ASL so this comes very naturally to me.
