Ride a blue eyed horse far away from home, far away from fear into the fields I go 

I took the road less run, took a lover on a long, cold lonely night and now sorrow, sorrow wears me like a badge

Hilly Fields, where you took my arms and taught them how to feel 

How I loved you

But my heart crushed beneath your heel, and scattered like ashes upon 

Hilly Fields, where you took my heart, ain’t made of steel, it cracks when the sun falls upon 

Hilly Fields, but if you asked me now if I would do it all again, how I’d love to
