Summer of Love
by U2

Album: Songs of Experience (2017)
  • The winter
    Doesn't want you
    It haunts you
    Summer serenadings
    A long way
    From this frozen place
    Your face
    Our teacher
    Our preacher
    It's nature
    And like flowers growing in a bomb crater
    From nothing
    A rose
    It grows

    I've been thinking about the West Coast
    Not the one that everyone knows
    We're sick of living in the shadows
    We've one more chance before the light goes
    For a summer of love
    A summer of love

    Freezing
    We're leaving
    Believing
    That all we need's to head over somewhere
    In a summer
    To come
    So we run

    I've been thinking about the West Coast
    Not the one that everyone knows
    We're sick of living in the shadows
    We've one more chance before the light goes
    For a summer of love
    A summer of love

    Oh and when all is lost
    When all is lost we find out what remains
    Oh the same oceans crossed
    The sun's pleasure
    The sun, it's pink

    I've been thinking about the West Coast
    Not the one that everyone knows
    In the rubble of Aleppo
    Flowers blooming in the shadows
    For a summer of love
    A summer of love Writer/s: ADAM CLAYTON, DAVE EVANS, LARRY MULLEN, PAUL DAVID HEWSON
