I'm standing in the shadow of the hill
I'm standing in the shadow of the hill
Feel the fear everywhere, hope it don't get me killed
I'm standing in the shadow of the hill

I'm standing in the shadow, walking blind
I've been unfair and unkind
I've turned away from your suffering far too many times
Now I'm standing in the shadow walking blind

Sister, brother, there's a fire on the hill
And it's burning like a lantern
Making all this time stand still
I'm standing, I'm standing, I'm standing
I'm standing, standing, standing

Mother, I am weak but I am strong
Standing in the darkness this long
But in the deepest darkness I listen to your song
Mother I am weak but I am strong

I'm standing, and I'm standing, I'm standing
I'm standing, standing, standing, I'm standing
Standing in the shadow of the hill
