The chorus of this song represents the current attitude and direction at The Mountain.


We can, we can, make a difference if we try…

We can, we can, change the world you and I…






Lyrics for the song, We Can – The Mountain


There is wisdom on the mountain top

In the stillness of meditation rock

See how nature thrives in adversity

In the twisted beauty of ancient oak

I will let this sacred place evoke

The spirit of possibility


It's not much but it's something I can do

Just a little thing but if you do it too

We can, we can make a difference if we try

We can, we can change the world you and I


Every person has a story

Their tragedy, their time of glory

Our histories have colored what we see

If I share the things I know

Listen deeply so I can grow

Bridge the distance between you and me


It's not much but it's something I can do

Just a little thing but if you do it too

We can, we can make a difference if we try

We can, we can change the world you and I


A bumper sticker says be the change

But it's hard work to rearrange

Our hearts and minds but that's where we must begin

If I learn new skills so I can choose

To walk the walk live my values

Light the world a little from within


It's not much but it's something I can do

Just a little thing but if you do it too

We can, we can make a difference if we try

We can, we can change the world you and I


It’s the cash and volunteering, re-purposed staff and engineering,

these all help The Mountain make it through.

You live your values, walk the walk, it’s so much more than just talk the talk.

For everything you do, we say, “thank you.”

It’s not much, but it’s something we can do.



Just a little thing, but really, we thank you.

We can, we can, make a difference if we try.

We can, we can, change the world you and I.

We will change the world, you and I.
