U2 Landlady

Roam, the phone is where I live til I get home

And when the doorbell rings you tell me that I have a key

I ask you, how you know it’s me

The road, no road without a turn and if there was

The road would be too long

What keeps us standing in this view

Is the view that we can be brand new

The landlady takes me up in the air

I go, I go where I would not dare

Landlady shows me the stars up there

I’m weightless, weightless when she is there

And I’ll never know, never know what starving poets meant

Cause when I was broke, it was you that always paid the rent

Space, her place is where I found my parking space

And when I’m losing ground, you know she gives it back to me

She whispers “don’t do, just be”

The landlady takes me up in the air

I go, I go where I would not dare

Landlady shows me the stars up there

I’m weightless, weightless when she is there

And I’ll never know, never know what starving poets meant

Cause when I was broke, it was you that always paid the rent

Every wave that broke me

Every song that wrote me

Every dawn that woke me

Was to get me home to you, see

Every soul that left me

Every heart that kept me

The strangers that protected me

To bring me back to you

Every magic potion

Every false emotion

How unswerving our devotion

To the lies we know are almost true

Every sweet confusion

Every grand illusion

I will win and call it losing

If the prize is not for you

U2 If You Wore That Velvet Dress

Tonight the moon is playing tricks again

Feeling sea sick again

And the whole world could just dissolve… into a glass of water

I’ve been good ’cause I know you don’t want me to

Do you really want me to be blue as you

It’s her daylight that gets me through

We’ve been here before… last time you scratched at my door

The moon was naked and cold I was like a two year old

Who just wanted more

If you wear that velvet dress

If you wear that velvet dress

Tonight the moon has drawn its curtains

It’s a private show no one else is going to know

I’m wanting

Sunlight sunlight fills my room

It’s sharp and it’s clear

But nothing at all like the moon

It’s okay the struggle for things not to say

I never listened to you anyway

And I got my own hands to pray…

But if you wear that velvet dress

But if you wear that velvet dress

Tonight the moon is a mirrorball

Light flickers from across the hall

Who’ll catch the star when it falls

If you wear that velvet dress

U2 Mysterious Ways

Johnny take a walk with your sister the moon

Let her pale light in to fill up your room

You’ve been living underground

Eating from a can

You’ve been running away

From what you don’t understand…

Love

She’s slippy

You’re sliding down

She’ll be there when you hit the ground

It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright

She moves in mysterious ways

It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright

She moves in mysterious ways

Johnny take a dive with your sister in the rain

Let her talk about the things you can’t explain

To touch is to heal

To hurt is to steal

If you want to kiss the sky

Better learn how to kneel

(on your knees boy)

She’s the wave

She turns the tide

She sees the man inside the child

It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright

She moves in mysterious ways

It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright

She moves in mysterious ways

It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright

Lift my days, light up my nights

One day you will look…back

And you’ll see…where

You were held…how

By this love…while

You could stand…there

You could move on this moment

Follow this feeling

It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright

She moves in mysterious ways

It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright

She moves in mysterious ways

It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright

We move through miracle days

Spirit moves in mysterious ways

She moves with it

She moves with it

Lift my days, light up my nights

U2 Who’s Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses

You’re dangerous ’cause you’re honest

You’re dangerous, you don’t know what you want

Well you left my heart empty as a vacant lot

For any spirit to haunt

Hey hey sha la la

Hey hey

You’re an accident waiting to happen

You’re a piece of glass left there on the beach

Well you tell me things I know you’re not supposed to

Then you leave me just out of reach

Hey hey sha la la

Hey hey sha la la

Who’s gonna ride your wild horses

Who’s gonna drown in your blue sea

Who’s gonna ride your wild horses

Who’s gonna fall at the foot of thee

Well you stole it ’cause I needed the cash

And you killed it ’cause I wanted revenge

Well you lied to me ’cause I asked you to

Baby, can we still be friends

Hey hey sha la la

Hey hey sha la la

Who’s gonna ride your wild horses

Who’s gonna drown in your blue sea

Who’s gonna ride your wild horses

Who’s gonna fall at the foot of thee

Oh, the deeper I spin

Oh, the hunter will sin for your ivory skin

Took a drive in the dirty rain

To a place where the wind calls your name

Under the trees the river laughing at you and me

Hallelujah, heavens white rose

The doors you open

I just can’t close

Don’t turn around, don’t turn around again

Don’t turn around, your gypsy heart

Don’t turn around, don’t turn around again

Don’t turn around, and don’t look back

Come on now love, don’t you look back

Who’s gonna ride your wild horses

Who’s gonna drown in your blue sea

Who’s gonna taste your salt water kisses

Who’s gonna take the place of me

Who’s gonna ride your wild horses

Who’s gonna tame the heart of thee

U2 Tryin’ To Throw Your Arms Around The World

Six o’clock in the morning

You’re the last to hear the warning

You’ve been trying to throw your arms

Around the world

You’ve been falling off the sidewalk

Your lips move but you can’t talk

Tryin’ to throw your arms around the world

I’m gonna run to you, run to you, run to you

Be still

I’m gonna run to you, run to you, run to you

Woman I will

Sunrise like a nosebleed

Your head hurts and you can’t breathe

You been tryin’ to throw you arms around the world

How far you gonna go

Before you lose your way back home

You’ve been trying to throw your arms

Around the world

I’m gonna run to you, run to you, run to you

Woman be still

I’m gonna run to you, run to you, run to you

Woman I will

Yeah, I dreamed that I saw Dali

With a supermarket trolley

He was trying to throw his arms around a girl

He took an open top beetle

Through the eye of a needle

He was tryin’ to throw his arms around the world

I’m gonna run to you, run to you, run to you

Woman be still

I’m gonna run to you, run to you, run to you

Oh, Woman I will

(And you just gotta, you just gotta make your faith…see…)

Nothin’ much to say I guess

Just the same as all the rest

Been trying to throw your arms around the world

And a woman needs a man

Like a fish needs a bicycle

When you’re tryin’ to throw your arms around the world

I’m gonna run to you, run to you, run to you

I’m gonna run to you, run to you, run to you

I’m gonna run to you, run to you, run to you

Woman be still

Woman be still

Be still

Woman be still

Woman I will

U2 Christmas (Baby, Please Come Home)

It’s Christmas

Baby, please come home

(Yeah!)

The snow’s coming down

I’m watching it fall

Watching the people around

Baby please come home

The churchbells in town

They’re rining a song

What a happy sound

Baby please come home

Theyr’e singing deck the halls

But it’s not like Christmas at all

I remember when you were here

And all the fun we had last year

Pretty lights on the tree

I’m watching ’em shine

You should be here with me

Baby please come home

Baby please come home

Baby please come home

They’re singing deck the halls

But it’s not like Christmas at all

I remember when you were here

And all the fun we had last year

If there was a way

I’d hold back these tears

But it’s Christmas day

Baby please come home

Ohh…

Baby please come home

Baby please come home

Baby please come home

Ohh…

Baby please come home

Baby please come home

U2 Always

Here today, gone tomorrow

Crack the bone, get to the marrow

To be a bee and the flower

Before the sweetness turns to sour

What we have we’re gonna keep, always

What we’ve lost we don’t need, always

What is it that won’t let you sleep, always

Be the arrow and the target

Put your head over the parapet

Be uncool, be awkward

Don’t look in the obvious place

The soul needs beauty for a soulmate

Get down off your holy cloud, always

God will not deal with the proud, always

Well if you dream then dream out loud, always

Eternally yours, always

I want you

I want you

I want you

Know what to do yourself, always

Go find yourself in someone else, always

And always wear a safety belt, always

Wait for me I’m running late, always

This is the moment that we share for always

Turning slowly into a prayer, always

Now and forever

For always…

U2 Unknown Caller

Sunshine, sunshine

Sunshine, sunshine

Oh, oh

Oh, oh

I was lost between the midnight and the dawning

In a place of no consequence or company

3:33 when the numbers fell off the clock face

Speed-dialing with no signal at all

Go, shout it out, rise up

Oh, oh

Escape yourself and gravity

Hear me, cease to speak that I may speak

Shush now

Oh, oh

Force quit and move to trash

I was right there at the top of the bottom

On the edge of the known universe

Where I wanted to be

I had driven to the scene of the accident

And I sat there waiting for me

Restart and re-boot yourself

You’re free to go

Oh, oh

Shout for joy if you get the chance

Password, you, enter here, right now

Oh, oh

You know your name so punch it in

Hear me, cease to speak that I may speak

Shush now

Oh, oh

Then don’t move or say a thing
