You thought that you could hide your love away
Up in the attic in some darkened place
But it’s your eyes, they tell the truth
They say the things that you don’t want them to

So it’s up to the hillside where you led me, dear
Promising you would leave me here
I see the gallows, but where’s the noose?
Somehow your heart got away from you
Somehow your heart got away from you

Scattering birds when we embrace
Out from the cage to some higher space
You can shoot them from Heaven for the wings they grew
But you can’t run away from what’s after you

So it’s up to the hillside where you led me, dear
Promising you would leave me here
I see the gallows, but where’s the noose?
Somehow your heart got away from you
Somehow your heart got away from you

Up through the garden like unwanted weeds
Against the odds, against decree
But I ain’t afraid when I hold your face
There’s a light so bright that I can’t turn away

Now it’s up to the hillside where you led me, dear
Promising you would leave me here
I see the gallows, but where’s the noose?
Somehow your heart got away from you
Somehow your heart got away from you
