Since last Saturday, I have been obsessed with listening to the soundtrack to the Irish musical Once. Here's one of my favorite songs, The Hill.

Walking up the hill tonight and you have closed your eyes

I wish I didn't have to make

all those mistakes and be wise

Please try to be patient and know that I'm still learning

I'm sorry that you have to see the strength inside me burning

Where are you my angel now

don't you see me crying?

And I know that you can't do it all

but you can't say I'm not trying

I'm on my knees in front of him

but he doesn't seem to see me

But all his troubles on his mind

he's looking right through me

And I'm letting myself down beside this fire in you

And I wish that you could see that half my troubles too
Looking at you sleeping

I'm with the man I love

I'm sitting here weeping

while the hours pass so slow

And I know that in the morning I'll have to let you go

And you'll be just a man once I used to know

And for these past few days someone I don't recognise

This isn't all my fault

when will you realise
Looking at you leaving,

I'm looking for a sign.
