One Tree Hill Lyrics

U22 (2012)

Note: U2 has released different versions of most singles in different countries. We are not showing every cover image in this space, just one that's representative of each release.

"One Tree Hill" (live from Auckland)

Turn away to face the cold, enduring chill
As the day begs the night for mercy, love
Your sun so cruel it leaves no shadows, only scars
Carved into stone under 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
Tears like a river to the sea

And in our world a heart of darkness
A fire zone where workers great their parts
Then bleed for it
While Jara sang his song as a weapon
In the hands of love
You know a miner's blood still cries on the ground

It runs like a river to the sea
With tears 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 to the sea
We run like a river to the sea
And when it's raining, raining hard
River to the sea
That's when the rain will break your heart
River to the sea

Oh great ocean, oh great sea
Run to the ocean, run to the sea
