Song For Someone
by U2

Album: Songs of Innocence (2014)
  • You got a face not spoiled by beauty
    I have some scars from where I've been
    You've got eyes that can see right through me
    You're not afraid of anything they've seen
    I was told that I would feel nothing the first time
    I don't know how these cuts heal
    But in you I found a rhyme

    If there is a light
    You can't always see
    And there is a world
    We can't always be
    If there is a dark
    Now we shouldn't doubt
    And there is a light
    Don't let it go out

    And this is a song
    A song for someone
    This is a song
    A song for someone

    You let me into a conversation
    A conversation only we could make
    You break and enter my imagination
    Whatever's in there
    It's yours to take
    I was told I'd feel nothing the first time
    You were slow to heal
    But this could be the night

    If there is a light
    You can't always see
    And there is a world
    We can't always be
    If there is a dark
    Within and without
    And there is a light
    Don't let it go out

    And this is a song
    A song for someone
    This is a song
    This is a song for someone

    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

    And I'm a long way
    From your hill of Calvary
    And I'm a long way
    From where I was, where I need to be
    If there is a light
    You can't always see
    And there is a world
    We can't always be
    If there is a kiss
    I stole from your mouth
    And there is a light
    Don't let it go out Writer/s: ADAM CLAYTON, DAVE EVANS, LARRY MULLEN, PAUL DAVID HEWSON
