Misty's Song


Tell me the reason I was born to roam,
Tell me the reason I am so far from home,
Tell me the reason only birds can fly,
Tell me the reason I was born just to die
.
How many mountains will I have to climb,
How many memories will I leave behind,
How many daydreams will I make come true,
How many heartbreaks until I find you?
There is a valley called Peace of Mind,
There is a river running right by it's side,
There is a moment of Glory so new,
There is Eternity to spend loving you.
I am absolutely in love with this song. Today we had General Conference with our branch and in between sessions one of my friends busted out her ukulele and showed us this song. A group of four eventually turned into 8 and we had split into parts. The harmonies of this song are beautiful and I love the words of this song right now. There is nothing better than a beautiful jam session with your friends.

  2. This is sung at an LDS camp in Utah called Oakcrest. It was my favorite song sung there.

    1. I sang this at Oakcrest also, over 20 years ago! It is the only time I have ever heard this song, and it is my favorite girls' camp song.

  3. 3 of my young women are sisters. They were taught this song by their mom and they know a soprano and alto part to it (kind-of), but we are having a hard time learning it from them. What are the chances you could convince you and your friends to make a YouTube video?????

  4. I learned this song as a Girl Scout in the 90s. I can't remember all the details, but I recall that this was a poem written by a girl named Misty that was dying and then someone put it to a melody.
