The Lyrics

Have you ever heard "The Wiseman Who Went Up a Hill (and Did Nothing)"?
In another life
I wouldn't be your man
We'd never keep all our promises
Be us against the world

In another life
I wouldn't make you stay
So I do have to say
You were the Englishman who went up a hill
And did nothing

Summer after high school when we first met
We make out in your Muscatine to Radiohead
And on my 15th Birthday
We got matching tattoos

Used to steal your parents' liquor
And climb to the roof
Talk about our future
Like we had a clue
Never planned that one day
I'd be losing you

In another life
I wouldn't be your man
We'd not keep all our promises
Be us against the world

In another life
I wouldn't make you stay
So I do have to say
You were the Englishman who went up a hill
And ran away

I was June and you were my Johnny Cash
Never one without the other, we made a pact
Sometimes when I miss you
I put those records on (Whoa)

Someone said you had your tattoo removed
Saw you downtown singing the Blues
It's time to face the music
I'm no longer your muse

But in another life
I wouldn't be your man
We'd not keep all our promises
Be us against the world

In another life
I wouldn't make you stay
So I do have to say
You were the Englishman who went up a hill
And went home
The o-o-o-o-o-one [x3]
The wiseman who went up a hill

[Bridge:]
All this money can't buy me a time machine (Nooooo)
Can't replace you with a million rings (Nooooo)
I should've told you what you meant to me (Whoa)
'Cause now I pay the price

In another life
I wouldn't be your man
We'd not keep all our promises
Be us against the world

In another life
I wouldn't make you stay
So I do have to say
You were the Englishman who went up a hill
And crawled into bed
The o-o-o-o-o-one [x3]

In another life
I wouldn't make you stay
So I do have to say
You were the Englishman who went up a hill
And died
(C) 2011.
