U2 – Staring at The Sun

Posted in U2 with tags on September 4, 2009 by kJouL

Summer stretching on the grass

Summer dresses pass

In the shade of a willow tree

Creeps a crawling over me

Over me and over you

Stuck together with God’s glue

It’s going to get stickier too

It’s been a long hot summer

Let’s get under cover

Don’t try too hard to think

Don’t think at all

I’m not the only one

Staring at the sun

Afraid of what you’d find

If you took a look inside

I’m not just deaf and dumb

Staring at the sun

Not the only one

Who’s happy to go blind

There’s an insect in your ear

If you scratch it won’t disappear

It’s going to itch and burn and sting

You want to see what the scratching brings

Waves that leave me out of reach

Breaking on your back like a beach

Will we ever live in peace

‘Cause those that can’t do

Often have to

And those that can’t do

Often have to preach

To the ones

Staring at the sun

Afraid of what you’ll find

If you took a look inside

Not just deaf and dumb

Staring at the sun

I’m not the only one

Who’d rather go blind

Intransigence is all around

Military still in town

Armour plated suits and ties

Daddy just won’t say goodbye

Referee won’t blow the whistle

God is good but will He listen

I’m nearly great

But there’s something missing

I left it in the duty free

But you never really belonged to me

You’re not the only one

Staring at the sun

Afraid of what you’d find

If you stepped back inside

I’m not sucking on my thumb

I’m staring at the sun

Not the only one

Who’s happy to go blind?

U2 – Stuck In A Moment

Posted in U2 with tags on September 4, 2009 by kJouL

I’m not afraid of anything in this world

There’s nothing you can throw at me that I haven’t already heard

I’m just trying to find a decent melody

A song that I can sing in my own company

I never thought you were a fool

But darling, look at you

You gotta stand up straight, carry your own weight

These tears are going nowhere, baby

You’ve got to get yourself together

You’ve got stuck in a moment and now you can’t get out of it

Don’t say that later will be better now you’re stuck in a moment

And you can’t get out of it

I will not forsake, the colours that you bring

But the nights you filled with fireworks

They left you with nothing

I am still enchanted by the light you brought to me

I still listen through your ears, and through your eyes I can see

And you are such a fool

To worry like you do

I know it’s tough, and you can never get enough

Of what you don’t really need now… my oh my

You’ve got to get yourself together

You’ve got stuck in a moment and now you can’t get out of it

Oh love look at you now

You’ve got yourself stuck in a moment and now you can’t get out of it

I was unconscious, half asleep

The water is warm till you discover how deep…

I wasn’t jumping… for me it was a fall

It’s a long way down to nothing at all

You’ve got to get yourself together

You’ve got stuck in a moment and now you can’t get out of it

Don’t say that later will be better now

You’re stuck in a moment and you can’t get out of it

And if the night runs over

And if the day won’t last

And if our way should falter

Along the stony pass

And if the night runs over

And if the day won’t last

And if your way should falter

Along the stony pass

It’s just a moment

This time will pass

U2 – Beautiful Day

Posted in U2 with tags on September 4, 2009 by kJouL

The heart is a bloom, shoots up through the stony ground

There’s no room, no space to rent in this town

You’re out of luck and the reason that you had to care,

The traffic is stuck and you’re not moving anywhere.

You thought you’d found a friend to take you out of this place

Someone you could lend a hand in return for grace

It’s a beautiful day, the sky falls

Abd you feel like it’s a beautiful day

Don’t let it get away

You’re on the road but you’ve got no destination

You’re in the mud, in the maze of her imagination

You love this town even if that doesn’t ring true

You’ve been all over and it’s been all over you

It’s a beautiful day

Don’t let it get away

It’s a beautiful day

Don’t let it get away

Touch me, take me to that other place

Teach me, I know I’m not a hopeless case

See the world in green and blue

See China right in front of you

See the canyons broken by cloud

See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out

See the Bedouin fires at night

See the oil fields at first light

And see the bird with a leaf in her mouth

After the flood all the colors came out

It was a beautiful day

Beautiful day

Don’t let it get away

Touch me, take me to that other place

Reach me, I know I’m not a hopeless case

What you don’t have you don’t need it now

What you don’t know you can feel it somehow

What you don’t have you don’t need it now

You don’t need it now, you don’t need it now

Beautiful day

U2 – With Or Without You

Posted in U2 with tags on September 4, 2009 by kJouL

See the stone set in your eyes

See the thorn twist in your side

I wait for you

Sleight of hand and twist of fate

On a bed of nails she makes me wait and I wait without you

With or without you

With or without you

Through the storm we reach the shore

You give it all but I want more and I’m waiting for you

With or without you

With or without you

Ah ha

I can’t live with or without you

And you give yourself away

And you give yourself away

And you give

And you give

And you give yourself away

My hands are tied

My body bruised

She’s got me with nothing to win and nothing left to lose

And you give yourself away

And you give yourself away

And you give

And you give

And you give yourself away

With or without you

With or without you

Oh

I can’t live with or without you

U2 – Elevation

Posted in U2 with tags on September 4, 2009 by kJouL

High, higher than the sun

You shoot me from a gun

I need you to elevate me here,

At the corner of your lips

As the orbit of your hips

Eclipse, you elevate my soul

I’ve lost all self-control

Been living like a mole

Now going down, excavation

I and I in the sky

You make me feel like I can fly

So high, elevation

A star lit up like a cigar

Strung out like a guitar

Maybe you could educate my mind

Explain all these controls

I can’t sing but I’ve got soul

The goal is elevation

A mole, living in a hole

Digging up my soul

Going down, excavation

I and I in the sky

You make me feel like I can fly

So high, elevation

Love, lift me out of these blues

Won’t you tell me something true

I believe in you

A mole, living in a hole

Digging up my soul

Going down, excavation

I and I in the sky

You make me feel like I can fly

So high, elevation

Elevation…

Elevation…

Elevation…

Elevation…

Elevation…

Elevation…
