Zoo Station (4:36) :

I'm ready

I'm ready for the laughing gas

I'm ready, I'm ready for what's next

I'm ready to duck, I'm ready to dive

I'm ready to say, I'm glad to be alive

I'm ready, I'm ready for the push

The cool of the night

The warmth of the breeze

I'll be crawling 'round

On my hands and knees

Just down the line...Zoo Station

Gotta make it on time...Zoo Station

I'm ready

I'm ready for the gridlock

I'm ready...to take it to the street

I'm ready for the shuffle

Ready for the deal

Ready to let go of the steering wheel

I'm ready

Ready for the crush

(She's just down the line)...Zoo Station

(Got to make it on time)...Zoo Station

Alright, alright, alright, alright, alright

It's alright, it's alright,

it's alright, It's alright

Hey baby, hey baby,

hey baby, hey baby

It's alright, it's alright

(Alright, you can turn it up)

Time is a train

Makes the future the past

Leaves you standing in the station

Your face pressed up against the glass

I'm just down the line from your love...

(Zoo Station)

You know I'm under the sign...

(Zoo Station)

I've gotta make it on time

Make it on time...(Zoo Station)

That's alright...(Zoo Station)

Just two stops down the line...

(Zoo Station)

Just a stop down the line...

 


  

Even Better Than the Real Thing (3:41) :

Give me one more chance

And you'll be satisfied

Give me two more chances

You won't be denied

Well my heart is where it's always been

My head is somewhere in between

Give me one more chance

Let me be your lover tonight

(Check it out)

You're the real thing

Yeah the real thing

You're the real thing

Even better than the real thing

Child...

Give me one last chance

And I'm gonna make you sing

Give me half a chance

To ride on the waves that you bring

You're honey child to a swarm of bees

Gonna blow right through you like a breeze

Give me one last dance

We'll slide down the surface of things

You're the real thing

Yeah the real thing

You're the real thing

Even better than the real thing

Child...

We're free to fly the crimson sky

The sun won't melt our wings tonight

Oh now...here she comes

Take me higher

Take me higher

You take me higher

You take me higher

You're the real thing

Yeah the real thing

You're the real thing

Even better than the real thing

Even better than the real thing

Even better than the real thing

 


 

One (4:36) :

Is it getting better

Or do you feel the same

Will it make it easier on you now

You got someone to blame

You say...

One love, One life

When it's one need

In the night

One love

We get to share it

Leaves you baby if you

Don't care for it

Did I disappoint you

Or leave a bad taste in your mouth

You act like you never had love

And you want me to go without

Well it's...

Too late, Tonight

To drag the past out into the light

We're one, but we're not the same

We get to

Carry each other

Carry each other

One...

Have you come here for forgiveness

Have you come to raise the dead

Have you come here to play Jesus

To the lepers in your head

Did I ask too much

More than a lot

You gave me nothing

Now it's all I got

We're one

But we're not the same

Well we

Hurt each other

Then we do it again

You say

Love is a temple

Love a higher law

Love is a temple

Love the higher law

You ask me to enter

But then you make me crawl

And I can't be holding on

To what you got

When all you got is hurt

One love, One blood

One life

You got to do what you should

One life

With each other

Sisters, Brothers

One life

But we're not the same

We get to

Carry each other

Carry each other

One...life

One

 


 

Until the End of the World (4:39) :

Haven't seen you in quite a while

I was down the hold just passing time

Last time we met was a low-lit room

We were as close together

as a bride and groom

We ate the food, we drank the wine

Everybody having a good time

Except you

You were talking about

the end of the world

I took the money

I spiked your drink

You miss too much these days

if you stop to think

You lead me on with those innocent eyes

You know I love the element of surprise

In the garden I was playing the tart

I kissed your lips and broke your heart

You...you were acting like it was

The end of the world (Love...love...)

In my dream

I was drowning my sorrows

But my sorrows, they learned to swim

Surrounding me, going down on me

Spilling over the brim

Waves of regret and waves of joy

I reached out for the one

I tried to destroy

You...you said you'd wait

'til the end of the world

 


 

Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses (5:16) :

You're dangerous 'cause you're honest

You're dangerous,

you don't know what you want

Well you left my heart empty as a vacant lot

For any spirit to haunt

Hey hey sha la la

Hey hey

You're an accident waiting to happen

You're a piece of glass

left there on the beach

Well you tell me things

I know you're not supposed to

Then you leave me just out of reach

Hey hey sha la la

Hey hey sha la la

Who's gonna ride your wild horses

Who's gonna drown in your blue sea

Who's gonna ride your wild horses

Who's gonna fall at the foot of thee

Well you stole it

'cause I needed the cash

And you killed it

'cause I wanted revenge

Well you lied to me

'cause I asked you to

Baby, can we still be friends

Hey hey sha la la

Hey hey sha la la

Who's gonna ride your wild horses

Who's gonna drown in your blue sea

Who's gonna ride your wild horses

Who's gonna fall at the foot of thee

Oh, the deeper I spin

Oh, the hunter will sin

for your ivory skin

Took a drive in the dirty rain

To a place

where the wind calls your name

Under the trees

the river laughing at you and me

Hallelujah, heavens white rose

The doors you open

I just can't close

Don't turn around,

don't turn around again

Don't turn around,

your gypsy heart

Don't turn around,

don't turn around again

Don't turn around,

and don't look back

Come on now love,

don't you look back

Who's gonna ride your wild horses

Who's gonna drown in your blue sea

Who's gonna taste your salt water kisses

Who's gonna take the place of me

Who's gonna ride your wild horses

Who's gonna tame the heart of thee

 


 

So Cruel (5:49) :

We crossed the line

Who pushed who over

It doesn't matter to you

It matters to me

We're cut adrift

But still floating

I'm only hanging on

To watch you go down

My love

I disappeared in you

You disappeared from me

I gave you everything you ever wanted

It wasn't what you wanted

The men who love you,

you hate the most

They pass right through you

like a ghost

They look for you

but your spirit is in the air

Baby, you're nowhere

Oh...love...

you say in love there are no rules

Oh...love...sweetheart...

You're so cruel

Desperation is a tender trap

It gets you every time

You put your lips to her lips

To stop the lie

Her skin is pale like God's only dove

Screams like an angel for your love

Then she makes you watch her from above

And you need her like a drug

Oh...love...

you say in love there are no rules

Oh...love...sweetheart...

You're so cruel

She wears my love

like a see-through dress

Her lips say one thing

Her movements something else

Oh love...like a screaming flower

Love...dying every hour...love

You don't know if it's fear or desire

Danger the drug that takes you higher

Head in heaven,

fingers in the mire

Her heart is racing,

you can't keep up

The night is bleeding like a cut

Between the horses of love and lust

We are trampled underfoot

Oh...love...

you say in love there are no rules

Oh...love...sweetheart...

You're so cruel

Oh...love...to stay with you I'd be a fool

Sweetheart...you're so cruel

 


 

The Fly (4:29) :

Low Voice

Gospel Voice

It's no secret that the stars are falling from the sky

It's no secret that our world is in darkness tonight

They say the sun is sometimes eclipsed by a moon

You know I don't see you when she walks in the room

It's no secret that a friend is someone who lets you help

It's no secret that a liar won't believe anyone else

They say a secret is something you tell one other person

So I'm telling you...child

A man will beg

A man will crawl

On the sheer face of love

Like a fly on a wall

It's no secret at all

Love...we shine like a

burning star

We're falling from

the sky...tonight

It's no secret that a conscience can sometimes be a pest

It's no secret ambition bites the nails of success

Every artist is a cannibal, every poet is a thief

All kill their inspiration and sing about their grief

Oh love...

A man will rise,A man will fall

From the sheer face of love

Like a fly from a wall

It's no secret at all

Love...we shine like a

burning star

We're falling from

the sky...tonight

(Achtung Baby)

(Love...we shine like a burning star)

(We're falling from the sky...tonight)

A man will rise, A man will fall

From the sheer face of love

Like a fly from a wall

It's no secret at all

Love...we shine like a

burning star

We're falling from

the sky...tonight

It's no secret that the stars are falling from the sky

The universe exploded 'cause of one man's lie

Look, I gotta go, yeah I'm running outta change

There's a lot of things, if I could I'd rearrange

 


 

Mysterious Ways (4:04) :

Johnny take a walk with your sister the moon

Let her pale light in to fill up your room

You've been living underground

Eating from a can

You've been running away

From what you don't understand...

Love

She's slippy

You're sliding down

She'll be there when you hit the ground

It's alright, it's alright, it's alright

She moves in mysterious ways

It's alright, it's alright, it's alright

She moves in mysterious ways

Johnny take a dive with your sister in the rain

Let her talk about the things you can't explain

To touch is to heal

To hurt is to steal

If you want to kiss the sky

Better learn how to kneel

(On your knees boy)

She's the wave

She turns the tide

She sees the man inside the child

It's alright, it's alright, it's alright

She moves in mysterious ways

It's alright, it's alright, it's alright

She moves in mysterious ways

It's alright, it's alright, it's alright

Lift my days, light up my nights

One day you will look...back

And you'll see...where

You were held...how

By this love...while

You could stand...there

You could move on this moment

Follow this feeling

It's alright, it's alright, it's alright

She moves in mysterious ways

It's alright, it's alright, it's alright

She moves in mysterious ways

It's alright, it's alright, it's alright

We move through miracle days

Spirit moves in mysterious ways

She moves with it

She moves with it

Lift my days, light up my nights

 


Tryin' to Throw Your Arms Around the World (3:53) :

Six o'clock in the morning

You're the last to hear the warning

You've been trying to throw your arms

Around the world

You've been falling off the sidewalk

Your lips move but you can't talk

Tryin' to throw your arms

around the world

I'm gonna run to you,

run to you, run to you

Be still

I'm gonna run to you,

run to you, run to you

Woman I will

Sunrise like a nosebleed

Your head hurts and you can't breathe

You been tryin' to throw you arms...

...around the world

How far you gonna go

Before you lose your way back home

You've been trying to throw your arms

Around the world

I'm gonna run to you,

run to you, run to you

Woman be still

I'm gonna run to you,

run to you, run to you

Woman I will

Yeah, I dreamed that I saw Dali

With a supermarket trolley

He was trying to throw his arms...

...around a girl

He took an open top beetle

Through the eye of a needle

He was tryin' to throw his arms...

...around the world

I'm gonna run to you,

run to you, run to you

Woman be still

I'm gonna run to you,

run to you, run to you

Oh, Woman I will

(And you just gotta,

you just gotta make your faith...see...)

Nothin' much to say I guess

Just the same as all the rest

Been trying to throw your arms...

...around the world

And a woman needs a man

Like a fish needs a bicycle

When you're tryin' to throw your arms...

...around the world

I'm gonna run to you,

run to you, run to you

I'm gonna run to you,

run to you, run to you

I'm gonna run to you,

run to you, run to you

Woman be still

Woman be still

Be still

Woman be still

Woman I will

 


 

Ultraviolet (Light My Way) (5:31) :

Sometimes I feel like I don't know

Sometimes I feel like checkin' out

I want to get it wrong

Can't always be strong

And love it won't be long...

Oh sugar, don't you cry

Oh child, wipe the tears from your eyes

You know I need you to be strong

And the day is as dark as the night is long

Feel like trash, you make me feel clean

I'm in the black, can't see or be seen

Baby, baby, baby...light my way

(alright now)

Baby, baby, baby...light my way

You bury your treasure

Where it can't be found

But your love is like a secret

That's been passed around

There is a silence that comes to a house

Where no one can sleep

I guess it's the price of love

I know it's not cheap

(oh, come on)

Baby, baby, baby...light my way

(oh, come on)

Baby, baby, baby...light my way

Oh...ultraviolet...

Ultraviolet...

Ultraviolet...

Ultraviolet...

Baby, baby, baby...light my way

I remember

When we could sleep on stones

Now we lie together

In whispers and moans

When I was all messed up

And I had opera in my head

Your love was a light bulb

Hanging over my bed

Baby, baby, baby...light my way

(oh, come on)

Baby, baby, baby...light my way

Ultraviolet...

[Repeat 4 times]

Baby, baby, baby...

Baby, baby, baby...

Baby, baby, baby...light my way

[Repeat 3 times]

Baby, baby, baby...light my way

 


 

Acrobat (4:30) :

Don't believe what you hear

Don't believe what you see

If you just close your eyes

You can feel the enemy

When I first met you girl

You had fire in your soul

What happened your face

Of melting in snow

Now it looks like this

And you can swallow, Or you can spit

You can throw it up, Or choke on it

And you can dream, So dream out loud

You know that your time is coming 'round

So don't let the bastards grind you down

No, nothing makes sense

Nothing seems to fit

I know you'd hit out

If you only knew who to hit

And I'd join the movement

If there was one I could believe in

Yeah I'd break bread and wine

If there was a church I could receive in

'cause I need it now

To take a cup, To fill it up

To drink it slow, I can't let you go

I must be an acrobat

To talk like this, And act like that

And you can dream, So dream out loud

And don't let the bastards grind you down

Oh, it hurts baby

(What are we going to do now it's all been said)

(No new ideas in the house

and every book has been read)

And I must be an acrobat

To talk like this, And act like that

And you can dream, So dream out loud

And you can find, Your own way out

You can build, And I can will

And you can call, I can't wait until

You can stash, And you can seize

In dreams begin, Responsibilities

And I can love, And I can love

And I know that the tide is turning 'round

So don't let the bastards grind you down

 


 

Love is Blindness (4:23) :

Love is blindness

I don't want to see

Won't you wrap the night

Around me

Oh my heart

Love is blindness

In a parked car

In a crowded street

You see your love

Made complete

Thread is ripping

The knot is slipping

Love is blindness

Love is clockworks

And cold steel

Fingers too numb to feel

Squeeze the handle

Blow out the candle

Love is blindness

Love is blindness

I don't want to see

Won't you wrap the night

Around me

Oh my love, Blindness

A little death

Without mourning

No call, And no warning

Baby...a dangerous idea

That almost makes sense

Love is drowning

In a deep well

All the secrets

And no one to tell

Take the money

Honey, Blindness

Love is blindness

I don't want to see

Won't you wrap the night

Around me

Oh my love, Blindness
