(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 he'd always given all he had,
'til he left us, Daddy had that sparkle in his eyes.
Last time I saw him, he said "Son, don't 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, you're 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, 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,"

(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, Girl, prepare.
Birth and death, you're 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.
Because it's there.
