Song Lyrics

And so she woke up
She woke up from where she was lying still
Said I, gotta do something about where I’m going
Step on a steam train
Step out of the driving rain
Maybe, run from the darkness in the night

Singing ha, ha-la-la-la-de-day
Ha-la-la-la-de-day
Ha-la-la-de-day
Mmmhmm

Sweet the sin, bitter the taste in my mouth
I see seven towers but I only see one way out
You got to 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 ha, ha-la-la-la-de-day
Ha-la-la-la-de-day, ha–la-la-de-day
Ha-la-la-de-day

She runs through the streets with her eyes painted red
Into the city red through the rain
In through a doorway she brings to me
White gold and pearls stolen from the sea
She is raging, she is raging
And a storm blows up in her eyes
She will suffer the needle chill
She’s running to stand…still

Still running, still running
Still running, still running
Still running, still running
Still running, still running

It’s a true story
True story about the city I grew up in
About 2 people so driven by a need
To fill their veins with heroin that they would do anything
Risk anything
But it is a song, written by, written about anyone driven to run
We’re all addicted to something
Me, I’m addicted to being up here
(Yeah)
