Erasure – Tower Of Love Lyrics

Tower Of Love Lyrics – Erasure

Stuck in the tower of love
The tower of love
You whispered in my ear
“Don’t go there, don’t go there.”
You slept a thousand years
A thousand years
Waited for the prince to come
Don’t go there, don’t go there

Said yourself you shouldn’t be there
No society
Couldn’t cut your way through roses
Or see the wood for trees
Said your love would give you nightmares
Walls are closing in
To see above the parapet
To realise your dreams

I thought you’d rise above
You’d rise above
You whisper in my ear
“I’ll get outta there, I’ll get outta there.”
I’ll always be your friend
You can count on me
Trapped in a loveless bond
Get outta there, get outta there

Freedom shouts and freedom screams
Let me run away
Can’t be trapped behing a screen
Hear the holy say
Even under doctor’s orders
Can’t stay in your room
Those four walls are closing in now
Mentally will bruise
When you see a crack of sunlight
Run straight for the door
I don’t want to meet the shadow
Of your former self

Said your love would give you nightmares
Walls are closing in
To see above the parapet
To realise your dreams
