No Line on the Horizon
by U2

Album: No Line on the Horizon (2009)
  • I know a girl who's like the sea
    I watch her changing every day for me, oh yeah
    Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

    One day she's still, the next she swells
    You can hear the universe in her sea shells, oh yeah
    Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

    No, no line on the horizon, no, no line

    I know a girl with a hole in her heart
    She said infinity is a great place to start
    Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

    "Time is irrelevant, it's not linear"
    Then she put her tongue in my ear
    Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

    No, no line on the horizon, no, no line
    No, no line on the horizon, no, no line

    Ooh
    Oh-oh, oh-oh, ooh
    Oh-oh, oh-oh

    The songs in your head are now on my mind
    You put me on pause, I'm trying to rewind and replay
    Every night I have the same dream
    I'm, I'm hatching some plot, scheming some scheme, oh yeah
    Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

    I'm traffic cop, Rue de Marais
    The sirens are wailing but it's me that wants to get away
    Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

    No line on the horizon, no, no line
    No, no line on the horizon, no, no line Writer/s: BRIAN PETER GEORGE ENO, ADAM CLAYTON, DAVID EVANS, PAUL DAVID HEWSON, DANIEL ROLAND LANOIS, LAURENCE MULLEN JNR., DAVE EVANS, LARRY MULLEN

  • Mike from Fair Haven, VtI like the groove of this song-but on the deluxe version of the album, there is a second version of it-it's a little faster and the chord changes are more pronounced-I actually like it better than the original album version-very raw feel to it
  • Grayson from Cleveland, Ohthis song sounds like something from the Achtung or Zooropa...
  • Grayson from Cleveland, Ohbrilliant song. one of the best in their catalogue.
