lyrics

I went up to the mountain just the other day
I kissed the ground beneath me and I prayed
Where has all my courage gone?

How come I can’t hear my song?

This is what the mountain had to say



She said

Oh, the less that you carry

The less you’ll need, the less you’ll need

And oh, the less that you gather
The less you’ll leave, yeah the less you’ll leave
And oh, the less that you worry
The more the world will bring, the more this world will bring

Yeah, ‘cause everything I have ever wanted is here
In this hollow wooden box
& these wound up metal strings
& this open hopeful heart

& the little song it sings



I went down to the ocean, my doubt & me
I poured it into a bottle & I sent it out to sea

How come I can’t trust the flow?

How come I can’t let this go?

This is what the water said to me


She said

Oh, the less that you carry

The less you’ll need, the less you’ll need

And oh, the less that you gather
The less you’ll leave, yeah the less of a mess you’ll leave
And oh, the less that you worry
The more the world will bring, the more this world will bring

Yeah, ‘cause everything I have ever wanted is here
In this hollow wooden box
& these wound up metal strings
& this open hopeful heart

& the little song it sings



I ask myself these questions almost every day

This is what my spirit has to say

She says

Oh, the less that you carry

The less you’ll need, the less you’ll need

And oh, the less that you gather
The less you’ll leave, yeah the less of a mess we’ll all leave
And oh, the less that you worry
The more the world will bring, the more this world will bring

Yeah, ‘cause everything I have ever wanted is here
In this hollow wooden box
& these wound up metal strings
& this little open hopeful honest moment, yeah

& this little song I sing, this little song I sing

Yeah this open hopeful honest moment, yeah
In this hollow wooden box
& these wound up metal strings
& this open hopeful heart

& the little song it sings
& this open honest moment

& the little songs we sing
The little songs we sing
The little songs we sing
