Staring At The Sun – U2

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 go undercover
Don’t try too hard to think… don’t think at all

I’m not the only one starin’ at the sun
Afraid of what you’d find if you took a look inside
Not just deaf and dumb i’m 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 gonna itch and burn and sting
Do 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
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 is 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 I’m missing I left in the duty free
Though 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 my thumb I’m staring at the sun
Not the only one who’s happy to go blind

Original Of The Species – U2

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, yeah babe

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
Oh no
Oh no

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

Oh no
Oh no
Oh no

(Black flash)
Black flash over my own love
Tell me of my eyes
Black flash come though my own life
Telling these things
And I believe them
And I believe in you

White flash sees the sky
And it turns its side from you
She won’t turn my back
And I know you turn so blue
And you know
And your sky is feeling blue
And your heart
So cold when I’m with you
And you feel
Like no one told you to
And your time is your side
And your time with me
Ah, don’t talk to me
Ah, don’t talk to me
Don’t talk to me

You know
Like no one told you how
But you know
Though the king that howls has howled
But you feel like sentimental
But you don’t care
If I just share it in your heart
(Heart…)

Hopelessly
So hopelessly
I’m breaking through for you and me
And you don’t
Though no one told you to
And you found out
Where you were going, where to
You’re through with me
But I know that you will be back
For more

And you know
And though no one told you so
And you know, blue sky
Like a harder shade of blue
And you walk
When you want
To let go
Me, I’m the outside, tell me fade away
Drop me down but don’t break me
In your sleep

In your sleep, inside
It’s in your heart and mine
Whole sea is dark
It’s in your heart and mine

Sweetly, those will come
Loving is on your side walking through
So let me in your heart
Your beat is like something…

They…
Run…
See say you’re sad and reach by
So say you’re sad above beside
Oh stay sad above beside
So stay sad above we said

You know I don’t
No one told you how
(And you don’t)
(And you wipe sweat off your white brow)
And you care
And no one told you tried
And your heart
Is left out from the side

And the rain beats down
And the shame goes down
And this rain keeps on coming down
And this sky
Tonight…

You know “S” “O” “N” “G”, why
You’re going go join to God
You know “S” “O” “N” “G”, why
Give away some him no lie
Give away some my de day no

You know
And though no one told you sky
And you feel
Like you pretend you can
You say go, you live
Go live outside of me
Don’t you leave
Don’t leave out part of me
Then I can feel
Like I feel before
Like I hurt now
And I see the floor
If you pick me up
Bits and pieces on this floor
