"Over the Hill" as written by and Alessi Linda Laurent Marke....
Once we get over the hill
We'll find a library
I like the bird books best
But you can choose from a variety

And if you shake the book really fierce
Out will fly a note from me
I know we'll get there eventually
But I'm english, so bear with me

I love you
Oh, I love you

We feed ducks in the local park
And eat ice-cream, get all jittery
Not from the sugar in the dessert itself
But from what you do to me
I want us to be sewn together
On a detailed embroidery
So the distance and the water between us

Won't keep you away from me

I love you
Oh, I love you

Well, all the rivers, oceans and lakes
Try to wash you on a shore faraway
And all the miles and the months that we wait
I've packed my suitcase, I'm here to stay
Oh, I will walk across vast miles of sand
To keep wrapped up in your hands
It's just a shame that from the very beginning
You've always been her man

I love you
Oh, I love you

It's just a shame that from the very beginning
You've always been her man

    My InterpretationI think this might be my favourite Alessi song, at least lyrically. "I'm English, so bear with me..."

    As for my interpretation - jetting off to America or Canada (across the Atlantic, 'the water between us') and falling for somebody who's perfect, but taken. She knows she can't have him, but she'd still follow him everywhere with this unspoken, unspeakable adoration.
