Half Mile Hill, eight years old
Standing on top with the world below
Me and my dad
Talking man to man
Suitcase packed, he was moving out
Said, It's no one's fault, but I had my doubts
And I have them still
Up on Half Mile Hill

Chorus:
You can see the ball fields
Watch the cars go 'round the courthouse
See the sun go down
Where the street lamps glow
On those checkerboard roads
Wishing I could fly like a cut-string kite
Tapping on the floor of heaven
Is anybody listening?

Half Mile Hill, seventeen
Tail end of summer, Angie and me
Kicking beer cans off the side
One last time
She was wildcat tough, I was scarecrow thin
We were thick as theives 'til the bitter end
Trying to make time stand still
Up on Half Mile Hill

Repeat Chorus

Hey all, you lovers and leavers
Stuck in-betweeners
Loners and stoners
Old drunks and dreamers
Rumbling and stumbling
Always looking for something
Past that no trespassing sign

You can see the ball fields
Watch the cars go 'round the courthouse
See the sun go down
Where the Street lamps glow
On those checkerboard roads
Wishing I could fly like a cut-string kite
Tapping on the floor of heaven
Tapping on the floor of heaven

Is anybody listening?
(Is anybody listening?)
Up on Half Mile Hill
Is anybody listening?
(Is anybody listening?)

    Free, young, and the unknown. With a mixture of innocence, nievity, and reality. Half mile hill is reaching out for guidance when words fail. Is anybody listening? :)

    There is always a half mile hill to climb when facing something... Whatever it is there will always be answers but not always easily given!

    A place to forget and remember your regrets... Funny hoe the program wants fifty words or more, too many words and the message is lost

    Half mile hill is that quite place. Place that you can see and think bout everything in the world everything that means anything to you. You can remember the good times and think about the bad yet you know you can't change a thing in the past
