Ice Your only rivers run cold These city lights They shine as silver and gold Dug from the night Your eyes as black as coal
Walk on by Walk on through Walk 'til you run And don't look back For here I am
Carnival The wheels fly and the colors spin Through alcohol Red wine that punctures the skin Face to face In a dry and waterless place
Walk on by Walk on through So sad to besiege your love so head on Stay this time Stay tonight in a lie I'm only asking but I I think you know Come on take me away Come on take me away Come on take me home Home again
And if the mountain should crumble Or disappear into the sea Not a tear, no not I
Stay in this time Stay tonight in Ever after, this love in time And if you save your love Save it all
Don't push me too far Don't push me too far Tonight Tonight Tonight

Rick (iceman) from Texas UsaBest band arguably of all time. 22 Grammys and over 150 million albums sold. As David from Sonora Mexico said, “Love the music up ‘til the 90s” that was me until recently when I travel out of town and decided to exclusively this to U2 during my countless hours of driving. I now love all their music into 2019!! Unbelievable how great this band is.
David from Sonora MexicoIn my Top 10 for sure. I saw U2 five times and has always been the Best Concert I've been to. Love their music up 'til the 90's :) Do not hate the later but just have not gotten into me... yet.
Pio from London, United KingdomReally love the moodiness and the string section and agree this is one of Bono's best vocals. I tried singing this at karaoke and made a real mess of it...I think I'll leave it to the Bonomeister!
Keith from Pensacola, FlU2's best song ever !!
Shawn from Frostburg, MdAngela, I agree, this song is right up there with "40" as one thier best. it is just a song that always puts me at ease when i hear it.
Matt from West Miflin, PaCindy sorry the line is directly taken from Stand by Me
Patrick from Hasbrouck Heights, NjWhat an atmospheric song! One of U2's finest.
Dave from Cardiff, WalesThe album of the same name was U2's magnum opus of the 1980s. Many will argue, but personally, I don't think they ever bettered it, not even with The Joshua Tree
Angela from Hagerstown, MdThis is probably THE most beautiful U2 song.
Ashley from Wouldntyalyke2know, In When I think of that line, "And if the mountians should crumble into the sea", I think of the "Stand by Me" song and it also makes me think of when Jesus was talking about faith. I think I understand though how the 'stuff' they told us goes with the music, like "walk on by" the exibit. It does make me wonder though if there was more to it...
Jeanette from Elkridge, MdI think this song is Bono's voice at his absolute best. I love to listen to his voice on this song, it gives me chills. Unfortunately, he doesn't sound like that anymore, too bad because it was very unique.
John from Madison, WiVery underrated U2 song.
Andrew from Kingston, CanadaTrue, but that's also a prevalent theme in a few Psalms from the Bible. So I think that's likely where the inspiration came from.
Cindy from Chicago, IlThe line, "And if the mountains should crumble or disappear into the sea" is a metaphor taken from Led Zepelin's song Thank You from LZII.
"Feel It Still" by Portugal. The Man deals with lead singer John Gourley becoming a "rebel just for kicks" after having a daughter and settling down. "It's hard to be a punk when you're thinking about your baby daughter at home," he says.
"Cleveland Rocks" was written by an Englishman. Ian Hunter wrote the song after touring America in the late '70s and finding that Cleveland was by far the most receptive city to his brand of Glam Rock.
