She can't sleep for the dreams
That walk inside
Tear down the walls
Are standing still
She's seen the shadows
Drift and flow
Still can't make up her mind

The ivory tower
Stands in the moonlight
Every footstep echoing
Along it's gleaming edge

I was the candle
I was the night
Darker than desire

Come down from your ivory tower
Come down from your ivory tower
Come down from your ivory tower
Come down from your ivory tower

Like a river breaks into the sea
Like a summer rain she breaks on me
And falls....

Across the battlefield
The lines are drawn
How tired lies inside us
When we live behind these walls
Hoping distances will hide us

Come down from your ivory tower
Come down from your ivory tower
(Come down)
Come down from your ivory tower
(Come down)
Come down from your ivory tower
(Come down)
Come down from your ivory tower...
(Come down)
Come down from your ivory tower
(Come down)
Come down from your ivory tower
(Come down)
Come down from your ivory tower
(Come down)
Come down from your ivory tower
(Come down)
Come down from your ivory tower
(Come down)
Come down from your ivory tower
(Come down)
Come down from your ivory tower
(Come down)
Come down from your ivory tower
(Come down)
