The Turning

Album: Dig Out Your Soul (2008)
  • Eyes over the city
    Rise up from your soul
    They hang over the streets at night
    Brought on by the cold

    We live with the numbers
    Mining our dreams for the same old song
    Why hope for the turning
    If everything you know is wrong

    [Chorus]
    So come on, shake your rag doll, baby
    Before you change your mind
    Then come on, when the rapture takes me
    Be the fallen angel by my side

    You carry the lantern
    I'll carry you home
    You search for the disappeared
    I'll bury the cold

    Yours is a messiah
    Mine is a dream and it won't be long
    No hope for the journey
    If no-one ever sees the dawn

    So come on, shake your rag doll, baby
    Before you change your mind
    Then come on, when the rapture takes me
    Will you be by my side

    [Chorus]

    So come on, shake your rag doll, baby
    Before you change your mind
    Then come on, when the rapture takes me
    Will you be by my side

    Hey come on, shake your rag doll, baby
    Before you change your mind
    And come on, when the rapture takes me
    Be the fallen angel by my side

    (Shake your rag doll baby)
    (Shake it 'round)
    (Shake your rag doll baby)
