White As Snow – U2

Where I came from there were no hills at all
The land was flat, the highway straight and wide
My brother and I would drive for hours
Like we’d years instead of days
Our faces as pale as the dirty snow

Once I knew there was a love divine
Then came a time I thought it
Knew me not
Who can forgive forgiveness when forgiveness is not
Only the land as white as snow

And the water, it was icy
As it washed over me
And the moon shined above me

Now this dry ground it bears no fruit at all
Only under a crescent moon
The road refuses strangers
The land, the seeds we sow
Where might we find the land as white as snow

As boys we would go hunting in the woods
To sleep the night shooting out the stars
Now the voes of every passing stranger
Every face we cannot know

For only a heart could be as white as snow
For only a heart could be as white as snow

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

Elvis Presley And America – U2

(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
