And so she woke up...

I didn't choose this song today..

It was more than an election..

I was watching the open field in front of me..

... A resonator and the slide on my hands of a lonely wooden house in the prairie...

Running To Stand Still

And so she woke up
Woke up from where she was lyin’ still.
Said I gotta do something
About where we’re goin’.
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.

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.

She walks 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.


  1. absolute classic.
    this song has been played on repeat for hours in my life.
    it's meant alot of things to me, then i read it was all about heroin and stuff.... idont know.
    it's sooo good and i had kind of forgotten how much i love it sooo thank you for the reminder

  2. Just read about it, quite sad..

    I found that the seven towers refer to Ballymun Flats in Dublin where the couple were living..
