U2 – One Tree Hill Lyrics

Produced By: Brian Eno & Daniel Lanois

You pyonged “U2 – One Tree Hill”

Save Note No Thanks
Caution: You are now annotating this song as

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

And when it's rainin', rainin' hard
That's when the rain will break a heart

Rainin', rainin' in your heart
Rainin' in your heart
Rainin', rain into your heart
Rainin', rainin', rainin'
Rain into your heart
Rainin', ooh, rain in your heart, yeah
Feel it

Oh great ocean
Oh great sea
Run to the ocean
Run to the sea
