Fast Cars
by U2

Album: How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb (2004)
  • My cell is ringing
    No ID
    I need to know who's calling

    My garden's overgrown
    I go out on my belly crawling
    I got CCTV, pornography, CNBC
    I got the nightly news
    To get to know the enemy

    All I want is a picture of you
    All I want is to get right next to you
    All I want is your face in a locket
    Picture in my pocket
    I take a pill to stop it

    I know these fast cars
    Will do me no good

    I'm going nowhere
    Where I am it is a lot of fun
    There in the desert to dismantle an atomic bomb
    I watch you shadow box
    Check the stocks
    I'm in detox
    I want the lot of what you've got
    What you've got can make this stop

    All I want is a picture of you
    All I want is to get right next to you
    All I want is your picture in a locket
    Your face in my pocket
    Take a pill to stop it

    I know these fast cars
    Will do me no good

    Child inside

    Don't you worry 'bout your mind
    Don't you worry 'bout your mind
    Don't you worry 'bout your mind
    Don't you worry 'bout your mind

    You should worry 'bout the day
    That the pain it goes away
    You know I miss mine sometimes

    The size is much too big

    There is no fiction
    That will truly fit the situation
    I'm documenting every detail
    Every conversation
    Not used to talkin' to somebody in the body
    Somebody in a body,
    Somebody in a body Writer/s: Adam Clayton, David Evans, Laurence Mullen, Paul David Hewson
