Elbow lyrics : "Running To Stand Still"

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
