  • I was talking
    I was talking to myself
    Somebody else
    Talk, talk, talking
    I couldn't hear a word
    A word you said

    He was my brother
    I said there was no other
    Way out of here
    Be my brother
    Gotta get out
    Gotta get out

    I was walking
    I was walking into walls
    I'm back again
    I just keep walking
    I walk into a window
    To see myself
    And my reflection
    When I thought about it
    My direction
    Going nowhere
    Going nowhere

    No one, no one is blinder
    Than he who will not see
    No one, no one is blinder
    Than me

    I was talking
    I was talking in my sleep
    I can't stop talk, talk, talking
    I'm talking to you
    It's up to you

    Be my brother
    There is another way out of here
    Be my brother
    Gotta get out
    Gotta get out
    Gotta get out of here Writer/s: Adam Clayton, Dave Evans, Larry Mullen, Paul Hewson
