Green light, Seven Eleven, You stop in for a pack of cigarettes. You don't smoke, don't even want to. Hey now, check your change. Dressed up like a car crash Your wheels are turnin' but you're upside down. You say when he hits you, you don't mind Because when he hurts you, you feel alive. Oh, is that what it is?
Red lights, grey morning You stumble out of a hole in the ground. A vampire or a victim It depends on who's around. You used to stay in to watch the adverts You could lip synch. to the talk shows. And if you look, you look through me And when you talk, you talk at me And when I touch you, you don't feel a thing.
If I could stay, then the night would give you up. Stay, and the day would keep its trust. Stay, and the night would be enough.
Faraway, so close Up with the static and the radio. With satellite television You can go anywhere: Miami, New Orleans London, Belfast and Berlin.
And, if you listen, I can't call. And, if you jump, you just might fall. And, if you shout, I'll only hear you.
If I could stay, then the night would give you up. Stay, and the day would keep its trust. Stay with the demons you drowned. Stay with the spirit I found. Stay, and the night would be enough.
Three o'clock in the morning It's quiet, there's no one around, Just the bang and the clatter As an angel runs to ground. Just the bang and the clatter As an angel hits the ground.
Nick from La Paz, BoliviaOne of their best songs for sure!! Criminally underrated. It has some of the best lyrics and metaphors Bono has ever written. Best song in Zooropa too. "Stay with the demons you drowned, stay with the spirit i found"... it doesn't get much deeper than that my friends.
Eddie from East Islip, NyStay and the night would be enough great lyrics. Who hasnt had a one night stand the time is magic.
Racine from Truro, MaThis is the song that got me into Wim Wenders. "Wings of Desire" is my favorite movie now.
Kevon from Philadelphia, Pathe band flyleaf did an acoustic cover of this song
Rick from Humboldt, Iabono said in rolling stone that this is possibly the greatest song he ever wrote.
Marius from LÃ¼neburg, Germany"Dressed up like a car crash - Your wheels are turnin' but you're upside down." - metaphors like this make U2's songs so intensive.
The Flaming Lips' "Do You Realize??" was named in March 2009 the official Rock Song of Oklahoma. Four years later, Oklahoma's governor Mary Fallin pulled the tune as the state's official rock song in a move her office said had more to do with priorities than musical taste.
