Turn to stone

Turn to stone

Electric Light Orchestra

The city streets are empty now
(The lights don't shine no more)
And so the songs are way down low

A sound that flows into my mind
(The echoes of the daylight)
Of everything that is alive
(In my blue world)

I turn to stone when you are gone
I turn to stone
I turn to stone, when you comin' home
I can't go on
Turn to stone, when you are gone
I turn to stone

The dying embers of a night
(A fire that slowly fades till dawn)
Still glow upon the wall so bright

The tired streets that hide away
(From here to everywhere they go)
Roll past my door into the day
(In my blue world)

Yes, I'm turnin' to stone
'Cause you ain't coming home
Why ain't you comin' home
If I'm turnin' to stone
You've been gone for so long
And I can't carry on
Yes, I'm turnin', I'm turnin'
I'm turnin' to stone

The dancing shadows on the wall
(The two-step in the hall)
Are all I see since you've been gone

Through all I sit here and I wait
(I turn to stone, I turn to stone)
You will return again some day
(To my blue world)
