The Lightning Thief - The Tree on the Hill Lyrics

2017 Off-Broadway
The Lightning Thief: Percy Jackson Musical - The Tree on the Hill Lyrics


"The Tree on the Hill" is a song performed by George Salazar (Grover) from The Lightning Thief: Percy Jackson Musical.

[PERCY] (Spoken)
Who's Thalia?

[GROVER] (Spoken)
You're not the first half-blood I was sent to protect. I should've told you,
but I-I thought that if I did, you'd never want me on this quest.
If you knew what a failure I really am. Ask Annabeth, she knows.

(Sung)
There's a tree on the Hill
Up on Half-Blood Hill

That watches over us
Silent and still

And no one at camp is safe until
We can see the tree on the Hill

(Spoken)
This was way before I met you. Chiron sent me to escort three half-bloods back to camp.
Two were runaways. One was Annabeth. The other was Luke. The third was Thalia.
Tough girl. Like her dad... Zeus.

[PERCY] (Spoken)
I thought I was the only kid of the Big Three gods.

[GROVER] (Spoken)
You are now. We'd only made it back to camp,
but I got nervous and we got lost and by the time we found the hill... something else found us.

(Sung)
And there on the Hill
Up on Half-Blood Hill

A cold wind blew
Dark and chill

For nothing would slake its wrathful will
We had to make a stand-

And maybe if I'd been a little bit braver
Maybe if I stayed behind to fight
But "maybe" doesn't let me go back and save her

"Maybe" doesn't make it alright

(Spoken)
Thalia saved us. We only survived because she stayed to hold off the monsters.
She paid for her sacrifice with her life. That's when Zeus showed up.

[PERCY]
(Spoken)
And saved her... right?

[GROVER]
(Spoken)
It was too late for that. As she died, he turned her into a tree,
So she could stand protecting us, forever. The way I couldn't do for her.

(Sung)
There's a tree on the Hill
Up on Half-Blood Hill

That protects us all
And always will

And it's there reminding me
Of all I failed to be

The tree on the Hill
