***************************************************************************

Running to Stand Still

 

D G

And so she woke up, woke up from where she was lying still, said I

D G

got to do something about where we're going.

D G

Step on a steam train, step out of the driving rain, maybe

D G

run from the darkness in the night, singing

A C G

ah, ah la la la de day

A C G D G

ah la la la de day, ah la la de day

 

Sweet the sin, but 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

ah, ah la la la de day

ah la la la de day, ah la la de day

 

G D G

oooh, oooh, oooh

 

D

She runs through the street with her eyes painted red

G

under black belly of cloud in the rain

D

in through the doorway she brings me

G D

white gold and pearls, stolen from the sea, she is raging

G

she is raging, and the storm blows up in her eyes, she will

A C G

suffer the needle chill

A C G D G D G D

she's running to stand still
