Song Lyrics

For Greg Carroll
This is One Tree Hill

We turn away to face the cold, enduring chill
As the day begs the night for mercy love
The sun so bright it leaves no shadows 
Only scars carved into stone 
On the face of earth
The moon is up and over One Tree Hill
We see the sun go down in your eyes


You run like river to the sea
You run like a river runs to the sea
(For this, our song)

And in a world a heart of darkness
A fire zone
Where poets speak their heart
Then bleed for it
Jara sang, his song a weapon
In the hands of love
You know his blood still cries 
From the ground

It runs like a river to the sea
It runs like a river to the sea

I don’t believe in painted roses 
Or bleeding hearts
While bullets rape the night of its merciful
I’ll see you again 
When as stars fall from the sky
And the moon has turned red
Over One Tree Hill

We run like a river to the sea
We run like a river to the sea
And when it’s raining
Raining hard
That’s when the rain will
Break my heart

Rain, rain, raining in the heart
Rain, rain, raining in the heart
 
Oh great ocean
Oh great sea, yeah
We run to the ocean
We run to the sea
