  1. The Hill

From the album The Hill

Lyrics

I drove up the hill and stopped at your place. I swear that it’s always and never the same. I opened your door and walked in your room. I blacked out and woke up with nothing to prove.

But I thought I would try, although we might fall. Although we might cry for awhile, that’s all. I thought I might feel a little bit for just a second’s time. I thought I might be careless and free. I thought I might be yours.

So here we are shoeless and blue. We’re warmed by the fire but cooled by the mood. Restless and weak. Tired of sleep. We’re stronger than ever, but never complete.

And I thought I would try, although we might fall. Although we might cry for awhile, that’s all. I thought I might feel a little bit for just a second’s time. I thought I might be careless and free. I thought I might…

I thought I might shoulder the blame, and take all the pain. Be your disguise. I’m sorry, but everyone has to come clean sometimes.

He’s broken and beaten through. The man in the corner starts to move. Though he’s broken and beaten through, the man in the corner starts to move. Slowly he stands up and climbs on the sill. A cool breath of air, the fool on the hill he screams, “lord, can’t you see? I wish I was anyone other than me. I wish I was anyone other than me. I wish I was anyone other than me.”
