lyrics

Up through the grass
Side of the hill
She sits and waits
Perfectly still

Nothing has come
Nothing has gone
She sits and waits
Looking for dawn

Girl on the hill
Where are you from?
Why do you wait
Though nothing has come?
The town is all grown
and seen you grow too
Now they are all gone
But you have not moved
They are all gone
But you have not moved

Weeds start to grow
A ball around her
A fair warning they give
We don’t decipher
Please, girl on the hill
Come down from your throne
We’ve nothing for you
You’ll die here alone
We have nothing for you
You’ll die here alone

But she twiddles her thumbs
Plays with the grass
Crosses her legs
Bats her lash
Nothing has come
Nothing has gone
She’ll sit here and wait
Looking for dawn
Sit here and wait
Looking for dawn

Sit here and wait…

Girl on the hill
Come down from your throne
Go into the world
And wait no more

Oooh (x4)
Ahhh (x4)
