You Can Walk Down the Hill

You can walk down the hill
To where the two lovers hold each other’s hand
Bound by a chain they forged together
On this dire, frightful land

You can walk down the hill
To see the waters who hide many skulls and bodies
Of people who stood by the tree
Of people called ‘nobodies’

You can walk down the hill
To the tree standing ‘lone by the sea
Looking out at the water
That tries but will never claim the tree

You can walk down the hill
To where the wind howls so loud
Where the two lovers wait
For the tide to come proud

You can walk down the hill
To the leaves swinging and wind singing
Where the water swiftly rises
Its cold chill the waves bringing

You can walk down the hill
To powerful waves of the sea
That have claimed many souls
Souls like that of me

You can walk down the hill
To hear the high CAW of the gulls
Where the water sings to its victims
The two lovers, it lulls

You can walk down the hill
To where the tree stands tall
But the lovers begin to sag
As the waves crash down, they both fall

You can walk down the hill
To where the two lovers hold each other’s hand
As the tide engulfs them and carries them away
Away from this dire, frightful land.
