She was on her way to the ??? of Mission Hill
With her head hanging down in her eyes
In a car climbed the hill with the sun shining still
And it bent as she rode through the trees

The sign up ahead said the way was turning left
So she slowed to the middle of the road
And she came to the pass, he was walking across
And she screamed, but a lump in her throat

And her foot hit the break and her tail swung around
And she stopped and he stared at the colors and the sound
And the car hit him hard and he fell to the ground
And she closed her eyes and prayed that he'd survive

She had blood in her eyes from a cut on her head
So she wiped them and turned in her seat
And she saw through the back that the figure looked dead
And his shoes had been knocked from his feet

She walked to the place where he lay on his back
And she felt for a pulse on his wrist
His eyes opened wide as she started to cry
And a smile crossed his face that she missed

He was thinking of what he would say to the girl
Who had just knocked him down on the side of a hill
And was sitting there wondering if he'd been killed
And was trying to come to terms with the guilt

Then he sat up and said, "Did you think I was dead?"
She was down on the edge of the road
So she got up and hugged him, her hands on his head
And she helped him back up with his load

Then they drove up the road to the ??? of Mission Hill
The sun on the cracks in the screen
Made the light on his hand as he reached for her arm
Seem to flicker and jump like a dream
