Up on this hill in this uncanny house
The wind makes this place creak
The lights, they are flickering
The moon, she is lurking
The clock, it stopped working at a quarter past three
There's something dancing here in the shadows
And I wish it were us

You haunt me baby
You haunt me here tonight
You haunt me baby
You haunt me here tonight
Tonight, tonight

Can't get your memory off of my mind (My mind)
Just want your heartbeat on top of my mine (On mine)
There's something dancing here in the shadows
And I wish it were us

You haunt me baby
You haunt me here tonight
You haunt me baby
You haunt me here tonight
Tonight, to

Up on this hill, in this uncanny house
Your spirit I can't see, but I still believe
I can feel your breath on me

You haunt me baby
You haunt me here tonight
You haunt me baby
You haunt me here tonight
Tonight, to

Up on this hill, in this uncanny house

    General CommentWow, first post??? This song is so beautiful. But you missed the ending, it says "Up on this hill in this uncanny house." That's how it ends. But otherwise, I love this song. Stephen's vocals give me shivers. I love this song.

    General CommentUp on this hill, in this uncanny house
    The wind makes this place creak
    The lights, they are flickering
    The moon she is lurking
    The clock has stopped working
    At a quarter past three
    There's something dancing here in the shadows
    And I wish it were us

    You haunt me baby
    You haunt me here tonight
    You haunt me baby
    You haunt me here tonight
    Tonight, tonight

    Can't get your memory off of my mind (My mind)
    Just want your heartbeat on top of my mine (On mine)
    There's something dancing here in the shadows
    And I wish it were us

    You haunt me baby
    You haunt me here tonight
    You haunt me baby
    You haunt me here tonight
    Tonight, tonight

    Up on this hill, in this uncanny house
    Your spirit I can't see, but I still believe...
    I can feel your breath on me

    You haunt me baby
    You haunt me here tonight
    You haunt me baby
    You haunt me here tonight
    Tonight, tonight

    Up on this hill, in this uncanny house.

    General CommentThis song is incredible - maybe my favorite Anberlin song of all. If the rest of the new record sounds this good, it will be a all time top 10 for sure.

    I'm not quite certain what he's talking about (outside of the obvious, of course)

    General Commentthis song is obviously one of longing, i think the girl he is talking about is probably dead and he feels like she is "haunting" him or at least her memory is...my favorite line of the whole song is "There's something dancing here in the shadows/ And I wish it were us," that is just so chilling yet still romantic...

    General CommentOne of my all time favorite lines:
    "Your spirit I can't see, but I still believe
    I can feel your breath on me"

    General CommentIt's probably talking about one of the girls that he dated that he led on and dumped or something like that...and the memory of his mistakes and the mean things he's done haunt him. He wishes he could have a good relationship with her, and start over.
