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 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 river, on like a 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 
Run 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 in the heart  Raining in your heart 
Raining, raining to your heart 
Raining, raining, raining  Raining to your heart 
Raining, raining in your heart  Raining in your heart 
To the sea

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