The Peak (Graduation Song) Bonus Track

from by Todd Burge



Inspired by my 10-year-old Sophia after she said she wanted her final week of fifth grade to last “a long long time”. Dedicated to the 5th grade of Criss Elementary. Best of luck in middle school!

Once you reach the peak of any mountain, you’ll be able to see farther than ever before. You’ll likely see another, taller mountain, and many times, you’ll have to climb down, before going back up to “take another peak”.


The Peak (by Sophia and Todd Burge May 23 2017)

I hope this day goes on forever
Or at least this week crawls and crawls
Oh… I hope this day goes on forever
As I’d like to hang out with you all, that’s all

But we’re older now and we know better
There’s more out there, as we wait and see
There’s another door that we must open
But we may be a bit afraid to take a peek

We’ll take a peek together
We’ll take a peek together

So, new beginnings always make me nervous
But nothing really stays that new for long
And the new becomes something I got used to
Like new buildings, with new friends or a new song

And together, we’ll sort this out
Through sun and clouds, the good times and the bad
If you stop and think a little or a lot
Just know, one day, you’ll be back on top
And see, we’ve climbed another peak

So, let’s take that peak together
We’ll take that peak together

I know this day will stay with me forever
