Vol. 110 “Running To Stand Still”- U2

Great things are timeless.  The U2 song “Running To Stand Still” speaks about the horror of heroin addiction, so relevant now in the face of the current opioid epidemic, as it was 30 years ago when it was released on the “The Joshua Tree”.  Today I share my rendition of this song recorded March 2017-June 2017, at The Land of Hope & Dreams studio, in honor and prayer for those who have recovered, those who still struggle and the many people who work hard to help others heal from this hell.  Thanks for listening!

Happy Independence Day!

Running To Stand Still

And so she woke up
She woke up from where she was
Lying still
And said I gotta do something
About where we’re going
Stepped on a steam train
Stepped out of the driving rain, maybe
Runs from the darkness in the light
Ah la la la dey dey
Ah la la la dey dey
Ah la la dey dey

Sweet little 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
And I floated outta here
Ah la la la dey dey
Ah la la la dey dey
Ah la la dey dey

She runs through the streets
Her eyes painted red
Under a black belly of clouds in the rain
In through a doorway she brings me
White golden pearls stolen from the sea
She is raging she is raging
And a storms blows up in her eyes

She will
Suffer the needle chill
She’s running to stand still
