Running to Stand Still Songtext

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 ooh la, ah la la la de day
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
Ah la la la de day

She walks through the streets
With her eyes painted red
Under a 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

I have no clue about the meaning of this song, but these sure are some of the most touching lyrics I read so far. Their lack of direction and hints makes them quite a thing to deal with. But the more often you read em, the clearer they become. Not necessarily clear in terms of meaning, but in beauty of poetry.

Whitney Houston sang „I Will Always Love ...“?
