Song Lyrics

We turn away to face the cold, enduring chill
As the day begs the night for mercy love
A 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 a river to the sea
You run like a river to the sea

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

It runs like a river to the sea
It runs like a river to the sea
Yes it runs, love

But I don’t believe in painted roses or bleeding hearts
Bullets they 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

You run like a river to the sea
You run like a river to the sea, yeah

And when it’s raining, raining hard
That’s when the rain will break my heart
Ah-yah-yah-yah, yah-yah-yah

No, no, no, raining
No-no-no-no

Pick it up, all day
Rivers don’t care
Rivers don’t
It’s rock ’n’ roll

Like a river to the sea, alright
Like a river to the sea, pick it up
Like a river runs to the sea

Oh great ocean
Oh great sea, yeah
We run to the ocean
