First verse with Riff 1:

 

C5 F5

We turn away to face the cold, enduring chill

 

Bb5 F5 C5 C7 C5

As the day begs the night for mercy love

 

C5 F5

The sun's so bright it leaves no shadows, only scars

 

Bb5 F5 C5 C7 C5

carved into stone on the face of earth

 

C5 F5

The moon is up and over One Tree Hill

 

Bb5 F5 C5

We see the sun go down in your eyes

 

 

Chorus with Riff 2:

 

Bb F C5

You run like river in like a sea

Bb F C5

you run like a river runs to the sea

 

 

Second verse same as first verse:

And in the world a heart of darkness, a firezone

Where poets speak their hearts, then bleed for it

Jara sang, his song a weapon, in the hands of love

You know his blood still cries from the ground

 

 

Chorus as before.

 

Cello Solo.

 

Now play synth chords (C C F F Bb5 F/C C C)

 

Third verse with synth chords:

 

C F

I don't believe in painted roses or bleeding hearts

 

Bb5 F/C C

while bullets rape the night of the merciful

 

F

I'll see you again when the stars fall from the sky

 

Bb5 F/C C

and the moon has turned red over one tree hill

 

 

Continue to play Riff 2 to end.

 

Distorted guitar kicks in towards end.

 

Outro: (With synth chords)

 

C F/C Bb5 F/C

Oh great ocean, old great sea

 

C F Bb5 F/C C

run to the ocean, run to the sea.

 

***************************************************************************

One Tree Hill

 

C F

We turn away to face the cold, enduring chill

Bb F C

As the day begs the night for mercy

Your sun's 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

 

Bb F C

You ran like river to the sea

Bb F C

Like a river to the sea

 

And in our world a heart of darkness, a firezone

Where poets speak their hearts, 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 to the sea, 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, like a river to the sea
