Gorillaz - On Melancholy Hill

Up on melancholy hill
There's a plastic tree
Are you here with me
Just looking out on the day
Of another dream

Well you can't get what you want
But you can get me

So let's set up and see
'Cause you are my medicine
When you're close to me

When you're close to me

So call in the submarine
'Round the world will go
Does anybody know
If we're looking out on the day
Of another dream


If you can't get what you want
Then you come with me

Up on melancholy hill
A manatee?
Just looking out on the day
When you're close to me
When you're close to me

When you're close to me

"On Melancholy Hill" is the third single from Gorillaz's third studio album, Plastic Beach. The single was released on 12 June 2010. The song was originally written by Damon Albarn during the production of The Good, the Bad & the Queen's self titled album. Band member Murdoc Niccals stated the following about "On Melancholy Hill" in an interview: "The Melancholy Hill - it's that feeling, that place, that you get in your soul sometimes, like someone's let your tyres down. It's nice to break up the album with something a little lighter. It's good to have something that's a genuine pop moment on every album. And this is one of those."
