Song Lyrics

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 in stone on the face of earth
The moon is up and over One Tree Hill
We see the sun go down in your eyes

We run like a river to the sea
You ran like a river to the sea
(For Greg Carroll)

In our 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
(Send more volume)

Like a river to the sea
It runs like a river to the sea
Yes it runs

And I don’t believe in painted roses or bleeding hearts
While bullets rape the night of its merciful
I’ll see you again as the 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

Raining, raining, rain into your heart
Raining, raining, rain into your heart

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

Oh great ocean
Oh great sea, yeah
Run to the ocean
Run to the sea
