U2 Original Of The Species

Baby slow down

The end is not as fun as the start

Please stay a child somewhere in your heart

I’ll give you everything you want

Except the thing that you want

You are the first one of your kind

And you feel like no-one before

You steal right under my door

And I kneel ’cause I want you some more

I want the lot of what you got

And I want nothing that you’re not

Everywhere you go you shout it

You don’t have to be shy about it

Some things you shouldn’t get too good at

Like smiling, crying and celebrity

Some people got way too much confidence baby

I’ll give you everything you want

Except the thing that you want

You are the first one of your kind

And you feel like no-one before

You steal right under my door

I kneel ’cause I want you some more

I want the lot of what you got

And I want nothing that you’re not

Everywhere you go you shout it

You don’t have to be shy about it, no

And you’ll never be alone

Come on now show your soul

You’ve been keeping your love under control

Everywhere you go you shout it

You don’t have to be shy about it

Everywhere you go you shout it

Oh my my

And you feel like no-one before

You steal right under my door

I kneel ’cause I want you some more

I want you some more, I want you some more…

U2 Love Is Blindness

Love is blindness

I don’t want to see

Won’t you wrap the night

Around me

Oh my heart

Love is blindness

In a parked car

In a crowded street

You see your love

Made complete

Thread is ripping

The knot is slipping

Love is blindness

Love is clockworks

And cold steel

Fingers too numb to feel

Squeeze the handle

Blow out the candle

Love is blindness

Love is blindness

I don’t want to see

Won’t you wrap the night

Around me

Oh my love

Blindness

A little death

Without mourning

No call

And no warning

Baby…a dangerous idea

That almost makes sense

Love is drowning

In a deep well

All the secrets

And no one to tell

Take the money

Honey

Blindness

Love is blindness

I don’t want to see

Won’t you wrap the night

Around me

Oh my love

Blindness

U2 If God Will Send His Angels

Nobody else here baby no one else here to blame

No one to point the finger…

It’s just you and me and the rain

Nobody made you do it, no one put words in your mouth

Nobody here taking orders when love took a train heading south

It’s the blind leading the blond

It’s the stuff the stuff of country songs

HEY IF GOD WILL SEND HIS ANGELS

AND IF GOD WILL SEND A SIGN

AND IF GOD WILL SEND HIS ANGELS

Would everything be alright?

God has got his phone off the hook

Babe would he even pick up if he could?

It’s been a while since we saw that child

Hangin’ round this neighbourhood

See his mother dealing in a doorway

See Father Christmas with a begging bowl

Jesus sister’s eyes are blister …

THE HIGH STREET never looked so low

It’s the blind leading the blond

It’s the cops collecting for the cons

So where is the hope and where is the faith … and the love?

What’s that you say to me

Does love… light up your Christmas tree?

The next minute you’re blowing a fuse

And the cartoon network turns into the news

HEY IF GOD WILL SEND HIS ANGELS

AND IF GOD WILL SEND A SIGN

WELL IF GOD WILL SEND HIS ANGELS

WHERE DO WE GO

Jesus never let me down

You know Jesus used to show me the score

Then they put Jesus in show business

Now it’s hard to get in the door

It’s the stuff it’s the stuff of country songs

But I guess it was something to go on

HEY IF GOD WILL SEND HIS ANGELS

I SURE COULD USE THEM HERE RIGHT NOW

WELL IF GOD WILL SEND HIS ANGELS

WHERE DO WE GO…

U2 With A Shout

Oh, and where do we go

Where do we go from here

Where to go

To the side of a hill

Blood was spilt

We were still looking

At each other

Oh, we’re goin’ back there

Jerusalem Jerusalem

Shout, shout

With a shout, shout it out

Shout…shout it out…

I wanna go

To the foot of the messiah

To the foot of he who made me see

To the side of a hill

Where we were still

We were filled

With our love

We’re gonna be there again

Jerusalem Jerusalem

Shout, shout

With a shout

Shout…

With a shout

U2 Gone

You get to feel so guilty got so much for so little

Then you find that feeling just won’t go away

You’re holding on to every little thing so tightly

Till there’s nothing left for you anyway

GOODBYE YOU CAN KEEP THIS SUIT OF LIGHTS

I’LL BE UP WITH THE SUN

AND NOT COMING DOWN… I’M NOT COMING DOWN

IM NOT COMING DOWN

You wanted to get somewhere so badly

You had to loose yourself along the way

You change a name but that’s okay… it’s necessary

And what you leave behind you don’t miss anyway

GOODBYE YOU CAN KEEP THIS SUIT OF LIGHTS

I’LL BE UP WITH THE SUN

AND NOT COMING DOWN… I’M NOT COMING DOWN

I’M NOT COMING DOWN

AND I’M ALREADY GONE

Felt that way all along

Closer to you every day

Didn’t want it that much anyway

You’re taking steps that make you feel dizzy

Then you get to like the way it feels

You hurt yourself you hurt your lover

Then you discover…

What you thought was freedom is just greed

Goodbye… no emotional goodnight

I’ll be up with the sun

Are you still holding on

I’m not coming down

I’m not coming down

U2 Bad

If you twist and turn away

If you tear yourself in two again

If I could, yes I would

If I could, I would

Let it go

Surrender

Dislocate

If I could throw this

Lifeless lifeline to the wind

Leave this heart of clay

See you walk, walk away

Into the night

And through the rain

Into the half-light

And through the flame

If I could through myself

Set your spirit free

I’d lead your heart away

See you break, break away

Into the light

And to the day

To let it go

And so to fade away

To let it go

And so fade away

I’m wide awake

I’m wide awake

Wide awake

I’m not sleeping

Oh, no, no, no

If you should ask then maybe they’d

Tell you what I would say

True colors fly in blue and black

Blue silken sky and burning flag

Colors crash, collide in blood shot eyes

If I could, you know I would

If I could, I would

Let it go…

This desperation

Dislocation

Separation

Condemnation

Revelation

In temptation

Isolation

Desolation

Let it go

And so fade away

To let it go

And so fade away

To let it go

And so to fade away

I’m wide awake

I’m wide awake

Wide awake

I’m not sleeping

Oh, no, no, no

U2 Sleep Like A Baby Tonight (Alternative Mix)

Wake,

In the morning when you wake up,

You won’t have much but you’ll have enough

When you are weakest I’ll be strong enough for you,

Dreams, the ones where you are fearless

Can’t break what’s broken, you are tearless

Steal back your innocence

That’s what they stole from you

You’re gonna sleep like a baby tonight

Not everything can be so black and white

There are demons in the broad daylight

But you can sleep like a baby tonight

Stop, stop.

Where you stand right now, just stop.

Don’t think or look down at the drop

The people staring from the street don’t know what you’ve got

You’re gonna sleep like a baby tonight

No, not everything can be so black and white

There are demons in the broad daylight

But you can sleep like a baby tonight

Hope is where the door is

When home is where the war is

Where nobody can feel no one else’s pain

You’re gonna sleep like a baby tonight

Not everything can be so black and white

There are demons in the broad daylight

You’ve got to sleep like a baby tonight

Sleep like a baby tonight

Take care of your heart until it is light

Where you stand, where you fall is where I kneel

To take your heart back to where you can feel

Like a child, a child.

U2 A Man And A Woman

Little sister don’t you worry about a thing today

Take the heat from the sun

Little sister

I know that everything is not ok

But you’re like honey on my tongue

True love never can be rent

But only true love can keep beauty innocent

I could never take a chance

Of losing love to find romance

In the mysterious distance

Between a man and a woman

No I could never take a chance

‘Cause I could never understand

The mysterious distance

Between a man and a woman

You can run from love

And if it’s really love it will find you

Catch you by the heel

But you can’t be numb for love

The only pain is to feel nothing at all

How can I hurt when I’m holding you?

I could never take a chance

Of losing love to find romance

In the mysterious distance

Between a man and a woman

And you’re the one, there’s no-one else

You make me want to lose myself

In the mysterious distance

Between a man and a woman

Brown eyed girl across the street

On rue Saint Divine

I thought this is the one for me

But she was already mine

You were already mine…

Little sister

I’ve been sleeping in the street again

Like a stray dog

Little sister

I’ve been trying to feel complete again

But you’re gone and so is God

The soul needs beauty for a soul mate

When the soul wants…the soul waits …

No I could never take a chance

Of losing love to find romance

In the mysterious distance

Between a man and a woman

For love and faith and sex and fear.

And all the things that keep us here

In the mysterious distance

Between a man and a woman

How can I hurt when I’m holding you?

U2 Promenade

Earth sky sea and rain

Is she coming back again

Men of straw sneak a whore

Words that build or destroy

Dirt dry bone sand and stone

Barbed-wire fence cut me down

I’d like to be around

In a spiral staircase

To the higher ground

And I, like a firework, explode

Roman candle lightning lights up the sky

In the cracked streets trampled under foot

Sidestep, sidewalk

I see you stare into space

Have I got closer now

Behind the face

Oh…tell me…

Charity dance with me

Turn me around tonight

Up through spiral staircase

To the higher ground

Slide show sea side town

Coca-Cola, football radio radio radio

Radio radio radio…

U2 All I Want Is You

You say you want diamonds on a ring of gold

You say you want your story to remain untold

But all the promises we made

From the cradle to the grave

When all I want is you

You say you’ll give me a highway with no one on it

A treasure just to look upon it

All the riches in the night

You say you’ll give me eyes in a world of blindness

A river in a time of dryness

A harbour in the tempest

But all the promises we make

From the cradle to the grave

When all I want is you

You say you want your love to work out right

To last with me through the night

You say you want diamonds on a ring of gold

Your story to remain untold

Your love not to grow cold

All the promises we break

From the cradle to the grave

When all I want is you

You

All I want is…you

All I want is…you

All I want is…you
