Song Lyrics

So she woke up
Woke up from where she was lying still
Said I, 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

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…
Ha-la-la-de-day…

She runs through the streets with her eyes painted red
Under a black belly of cloud in 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 eye
She will suffer the needle chill
She’s running to stand…still

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

Well it’s a true story
True story written about the city I grew up in
About 2 people I knew
2 people so driven by a need to fill their veins with
This dangerous drug called heroin that they would risk anything…
Everything…at all
But it’s a song written about anybody driven
We’re all addicted to something
Me? I’m addicted to being up here
