"Over the Hills" as written by and Kristian Matsson....
Well, I could hear it, the river was crying
And I could see you through the fog
And I could reach into magnetic fields, all
To steal a hammer and a gun
For every engine down
Yes, I will find a cure
I'm going over the hills now
I'm going into the blue

And I will tell it to the mighty wind that
I have betrayed it once again
And I will listen to the backwards music
With a propeller in my hand
For every child in tears
I will throw down a hand
I'm going over the hills now
I'm going over as planned

And every morning I will push the bottom
To bring the sun above our head
And with a smiling face I drew upon it
I will consider it as said
That every lie I tell
Will arrive like it's true
I'm going over the hills now
I'm going into the blue

Oh, honey!

And I will hijack every morning railroad
Perhaps I'll die upon that train
Perhaps I'll turn the wheel to slide it over
Into the long and narrow trail
And I would bounce the moon
On the earth if I could
I'm going over the hills now
I'm going over now for good

    Lyric CorrectionWell, I could hear it when the rivers crying
    And I could see it through the fog
    And I could reach into magnetic fields now
    To steal a hammer and a gun
    For every engine down
    Yes, I will find a new
    I'm going over the hills now
    I'm going into the blue

    And I will tell it to the mighty wind that
    I have betrayed it once again
    And I will listen to the backwards music
    With a propeller in my hand
    For every child in tears
    I will throw down a hand
    I'm going over the hills now
    I'm going over as planned

    And every morning I will push
    And bring the sun above our head
    And with a smiling face I do upon it
    I will consider it as sin
    That every lie I tell
    Will arrive like it's true
    I'm going over the hills now
    I'm going into the blue

    Oh, honey!

    And I will hijack every morning railroad
    Perhaps I'll die upon that train
    Perhaps I'll turn the wheel to slide it over
    Into the long and narrow trade
    And I would bounce the moon
    On the earth if I could
    I'm going over the hills now
    I'm going over now for good

    General CommentPretty good lyrics. Although I think you missed a few. Such as instead of "for every child in tears, i will go down a hill" I think it should be "For every child in tears, I will throw down a hand" It follows the rhyme scheme better. Also "That every lie I tell, will alright like it's true" should be "That every lie I tell, will arrive like it's true". And the very last verse I always thought he said "I would bounce the moon on the Earth if I could" Although I'm not sure.
