Song Meaning
Verse 1
Did you hear of the city on the hill
Said one old man to the other
It once shined bright, and it would be shining still
But they all started turning on each other
Verse 2
You see the poets thought the dancers were shallow
And the soldiers thought the poets were weak
And the elders saw the young ones as foolish
And the rich man never heard the poor man speak
Verse 3
But one by one, they ran away
With their made up minds to leave it all behind
And the light began to fade
In the City on the Hill, the City on the Hill
Verse 4
Each one thought that they knew better
But they were different by design
Instead of standing strong together
They let their differences divide
Verse 5
And one by one, they ran away
With their made up minds to leave it all behind
And the light began to fade
In the City on the Hill, the City on the Hill
Verse 6
And the world is searching still
Verse 7
But it was the rhythm of the dancers
That gave the poets life
It was the spirit of the poets
That gave the soldiers strength to fight
It was fire of the young ones
It was the wisdom of the old
It was the story of the poor man
That needed to be told
Verse 8
It is the rhythm of the dancers
That gives the poets life
It is the spirit of the poets
That gives the soldiers strength to fight
It is fire of the young ones
It is the wisdom of the old
It is the story of the poor man
That's needing to be told
Verse 9
But one by one will we run away
With our made up minds to leave it all behind
As the light begins to fade in the City on the Hill
Verse 10
One by one will we run away
With our made up minds to leave it all behind
As the light begins to fade in the City on the Hill
The city on the hill
Verse 11
(Come home)
And the Father's calling still
(Come home)
To the city on the hill
(Come home)
