The Hill

2 09 2008

by Marketa Irglova (from the movie “Once”)

Walking up the hill tonight
and you have closed your eyes,
I wish I didn’t have to make
all those mistakes and be wise.
Please try to be patient
and know that I’m still learning.
I’m sorry that you have to see
the strength inside me burning.

Where are you my angel now?
Don’t you see me crying?
I know that you can do it all
but you can’t say I’m not trying.
I’m on my knees in front of him
but he doesn’t seem to see me
but all his troubles on this night
is looking right through me
and I’m letting myself down
by satisfying you
and I wish that you could see
I have my troubles, too.

Looking at you sleeping,
I’m with the man I love.
I’m sitting here weeping
while the hours pass so slow.
And I know that in the morning
I have to let you go
and you’ll be just a man
once I used to know.
But for these past few days
you’re someone I don’t recognize
This isn’t all my fault.
When will you realize?

Looking at you leaving,
I’m looking for a sign

**sheet music coming soon :)**
