(verse)
They gave him the Medal of Honor, his last tour, he was a tail gunner,
He helped the rest of his squadron to survive.
They presented Mom with a folded flag, said Daddy always gave all he had,
I still remember the last time I saw him alive,
He said "Son, you don't have to be scared."
"It's okay, go ahead and climb that mountain,"

(chorus)
Because it's there,
Every challenge that we face is something to embrace,
If we dare.
When you're where,
You know that you belong, you can do no wrong,
So, Son, prepare.
Birth and death, we're all between 'em,
Live your moments like you mean 'em.
Time's the only thing that can't be spared.
Go on and climb that mountain,
Because it's there.
Because it's there.

(verse)
She just learned her ABC's, she climbed up on my knee,
She said, "Daddy, someday, can I be president?"
I told her, "Grandpa said we can do anything, anything that we can dream.
Don't let anyone tell you that you can't.
Little butterfly, don't ever be scared,
It's okay, go ahead and climb that mountain,"

(repeat chorus with "So, Girl prepare.")
(repeat hook)

Live your moments like you mean 'em.
Time's the only thing that can't be spared.
Go on and climb that mountain,
I know I'm gonna climb that mountain,
You know it's time to climb that mountain,
Because it's there.
