Running To Stand Still Song Lyrics

And so she woke up
She woke up
From where
She was lying still.
I gotta do something
Where we're going.
Step on a fast train
Step out
Of the driving rain
From the darkness
In the night.
Singing ah
Ah la la la de day
Ah la la la de day.
Sweet the sin
Bitter the taste
In my mouth.
I see seven towers
But I only see
One way out.
You gotta cry
Without weeping
Without speaking
Without raising
Your voice.
You know
I took the poison
the poison stream
Then I floated
Out of here, singing
ah la la la de day
ah la la la de day.
She walks
Through the streets
With her eyes
Painted red
Under black belly
Of cloud in the rain.
In through a doorway
She brings me
White golden pearls
Stolen from the sea.
She is ragin'
She is ragin'
And the storm
Blows up
In her eyes.
She will suffer
The needle chill
She's running
To stand still
