Straight To You Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

All the towers of ivory are crumbling
And the swallows have sharpened their beaks
This is the time of our great undoing
This is the time that I'll come running

Straight to you
For I am captured
Straight to you
For I am captured
One more time

Now, the light in our window is fading
And the candle it gutters on the ledge
Well, now sorrow, it comes a-stealing
And I'll cry, girl, but I'll come a-running

Straight to you
For I am captured
Straight to you
For I am captured
Once again

Gone are the days of rainbows
And gone are the nights of the swinging from the stars
For the sea will swallow up the mountains
And the sky will throw thunderbolts and sparks

Straight at you
But I'll come a-running
Straight to you
Yeah I'll come a-running
One more time

Now, Heaven has denied us its kingdom
And the saints they're all drunk and howling at the moon
And the chariots of angels are colliding
Well, I'll run, baby, but I'll come a-running

Straight to you
For I am captured
Straight to you
For I am captured
One more time
