Song Lyrics

And so she woke up
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
Mmm-hmm

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 ha, ha-la-la-la-de-day
Ha-la-la-la-de-day, ha–la-la-de-day
Ha-la-la-de-day
Hoo…

She runs through the streets with her eyes painted red
Under a black belly of cloud full of rain
In through a doorway she brings 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…

You know this is…this is a true story
Set in the city I grew up in which is Dublin city
Just over my back wall, this large place
They call the seven towers
There were some people I knew there
Some people I saw driven by a need
To fill their veins with heroin
This is a song written about anybody’s need
Driven to do anything, I suppose
We’re all addicted to something
Me, I’m addicted to be up here

Still running
