ELO - Turn to stone
Tekst en muziek: Jeff Lynne
(1977)






The city streets are empty now
The lights don’t shine no more
And so the songs are way down low
Turning, turning, turning
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
Turn to stone when you comin’ home
I can’t go on



The dying embers of the night
A fire that slowly fades till dawn
Still glow upon the wall so bright
Burning, burning, burning
The tired streets that hide away
From here to everywhere they go
Roll past my door into the day
In my blue world



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



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



The dancing shadows on the wall
The two-step in the hall
Are all I see since you’ve been gone
Turning, turning, turning
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



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



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