One Tree Hill

by U2

Lyrics

We turn away to face the cold, enduring chill
As the day begs the night for mercy love
The sun so bright it leaves no shadows
Only scars carved into stone

The Joshua Tree is by far their best album
one tree hill...Jesus on the cross.
Stupid Pandora...yo u cut out the awesome coda to the song!
@daisyandwil l o w There's definitely some imagery in the song that refers to political unrest, and he mentions Victor Jara, a poet who was imprisoned for political reasons and killed.

Why does pandora think this song has 'political lyrics'? These lyrics are not political at all!
One Tree Hill is a hidden on the Joshua Tree album. It is so thought provoking and the music pushes one to that hill. U2 were firing full thrusters with this beauty. Nice cruncing guitar that ends it. Peace.
OOOOOOH YEAH!!!!!!!!
Can't get enough one of the best albums ever !!
Wyclef Jean once said in 1987 that U2 were the only ones to have something to say. Wow what a great album and an under noticed track. Powerful and Haunting as is the whole album.

What a great song on one of the best albums ever made. Listening to the Joshua Tree brings me right back to a very specific time in my life.
Wish I could give three thumbs up to this song.
By far their best album. One Tree Hill still resonates today as it did in 1987.

Pandora didn't play the whole song. That's just wrong.
great song

There were a lot of great tracks on The Joshua Tree, but for me, this song was the best. How it didn't get more recognition is beyond me. Brings back a lot of memories of 1987. Good times.:)

Powerfull lyrics with a melody to match the force and raw emotion. None better than U2 and very few peers.
still a great song.

That album is really good and you should see them in concert at least once. It's worth it.
How amazing was this album that this was an album track and not a single?

How do you mix "One" with "One Tree Hill"? Who put them on?
wrong lyrics, please fix
carlasbizz: don't know where you live, but there are still some tickets available to some concerts on the 360 tour... I've been saying what you've said since the '80s. Not sure why it took me so long, but I will be going to my first U2 concert later this year :) Life's too short. If this is one of your dreams, then go for it!
carlasbizz
Would like to see them in concert before I die

The lyrics above are wrong: those are for One, not One Tree Hill. Amazing song, though.
oui33
Classic U2!
bluemrm
This is also my favorite song:)
This is one of the best songs ever. Seriously. The last 60 seconds give me goosebumps every single time.
this is one of my all time favorite songs too!!
