One Tree Hill

U2

/ One Tree Hill /

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 on to the sea
You run like a river runs to the sea

And in the 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 runs 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 the merciful

I’ll see you again when the stars fall from the sky
And the moon has turned red over One Tree Hill

We run like a river runs to the sea
We run like a river to the sea
