Running to Stand Still  U2

I'm taking this from the elbow cover version made for the war child album
( ) Which is just as
good as the original (maybe even better?). Guy hasn't messed around with
it much, though, so if you're just looking for the U2 one, this one wont
sound any different!
Verse Riff
[D] [D] [G] [G]  

A x22220
G 540033
x= no chord
D x
And so she woke up
G x
Woke up from where she was lying still
Said [D]I've gotta do somethin[D]g
G x
About where we're going
D x
Step on a steam train
[G] Step out of the dri[G]ving rain, maybe
D x G x
Run from the darkness in the night
Singing [A]ha, ah la la [G]la de day
[A]Ah la la la [G]de day
D D | D | D |
Ah la la de day
[D] Sweet the sin[D]
Bitter the[G] taste in my mou[G]th
[D] I see seven tower[D]s
But I only [G]see one way out[G]
You got to cr[D]y without weeping
Ta[D]lk without speaking
Sc[G]ream without raising your voi[G]ce
You know I took the p[D]oison
From the [D]poison stream
Then I f[G]loated out of h[G]ere
Singing...[A]ha la la [G]la de day
[A] Ha la la [G]la de day
Ha la l[D]a de day
D|D|G|G| x10 with Intro Riff and Harmonica Riff
[D] She runs through the streets[D],
With her eyes painted red,[G]
Under black be[G]lly of cloud in the rain
[D] In through a doorway [D]she brings me
[G]White gold and pearls [G]stolen from the sea
She is rag[D]ing
She is rag[D]ing
And the s[G]torm blows up in her eyes[G],
She will...
[A] Suffer the nee[G]dle chill
[A] She's running to [G]stand...
