Little girl on a hill

Little girl on a hill, be still

Little girl on a hill, be still

For the shadows are here

For the shadows smell fear.

Little girl on a hill, be still

Little girl on a hill, be still.

For the monsters draw near.

For the creatures smell fear.

Little girl on a hill, they taste your tears.

Little girl on a hill, they know you're near.

Little girl on a hill, show no fear.

Little girl on a hill, the whips crackle near.

Little girl on a hill, they smell of blood and tears.

Be still Little girl on a hill, you're black as night

No one will see you in sight.

Little girl on a hill, screams they follow.

Little girl on a hill, be still.

Little girl on a hill, mama is killed

Little girl on a hill, papa is killed

Little girl on a hill, pale face is near.

Little girl on a hill, don't cry my dear.

Too black, he won't see you 

Too quiet, he won't hear you

Too pretty, he won't recognize.

Little girl on a hill, don't cry.

Little girl on a hill, pale face is here

Little girl on a hill, hear the crackle

Little girl on a hill, hear the jackal

Little girl on a hill, he is gone.

Little girl on a hill, safe tonight 

Little girl on a hill, don't breathe

For the shadows are always with thee.
