Elbow - Running To Stand Still lyrics

And so she woke up
Woke up from where
She was lying still.
Said I gotta do something about
Where we're going.

Step on a steam train
Step out of the driving rain
Maybe
Run from the darkness
In the night.
Singing ah,
Ah la la la de day
Ah la la la de day
Ah 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
Talk without speaking
Scream without raising
Your voice.
You know
I took the poison
From the poison stream
Then I floated out of here, singing
Ah la la la de day
Ah la la la de day
Ah la la de day.

She roams 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
