1. From the Hill

From the recording Colours



To my dismay
Through my door today
Came a leaflet bearing unwanted news
Of a development plan
Constructed by man
Right there in my beautiful view

From the top of the hill
Out passed Selsey Bill
‘cross the bay to the Isle of Wight
Is a view that I treasure
Beyond monetary measure
And something that man shouldn’t blight

Power power
Yes we need more power
So that we can leave everything on
Lights shine all night
With no one in sight
The countryside wasted and gone

So look at our view
Where houses ensue
Where woodland was growing pristine
And out in our sea
A wind farm you’ll see
Turning yes turning us green
