Zooropa (6:30) :

(What do you want?)

(What do you want?)

Zooropa...Vorsprung durch Technik

Zooropa...be all that you can be

Be a winner

Eat to get slimmer

Zooropa...a bluer kind of white

Zooropa...it could be yours tonight

We're mild and green

And squeaky clean

Zooropa...better by design

Zooropa...fly the friendly skies

Through appliance of science

We've got that ring of confidence

And I have no compass

And I have no map

And I have no reasons

No reasons to get back

And I have no religion

And I don't know what's what

And I don't know the limit

The limit of what we've got

Don't worry baby, it'll be alright

You got the right shoes

To get you through the night

It's cold outside, but brightly lit

Skip the subway

Let's go to the overground

Get your head out of the mud baby

Put flowers in the mud baby

Overground

No particular place names

No particular song

I've been hiding

What am I hiding from

Don't worry baby, it's gonna be alright

Uncertainty can be a guiding light

I hear voices, ridiculous voices

Out in the slipstream

Let's go, let's go overground

Take your head out of the mud baby

She's gonna dream up

The world she wants to live in

She's gonna dream out loud

She's gonna dream out loud

Dream out loud

 


  

Babyface (4:00) :

Watching your bright blue eyes

In the freeze frame

I've seen them so many times

I feel like I must be your best friend

You're looking fine, so fine, oh my

Dressed up like a lovely day, oh

Babyface, babyface

Slow down child, let me untie your lace

Babyface, babyface

Cover girl with natural grace

How could beauty be so kind

To an ordinary guy

Coming home late at night

To turn you on

Checking out every frame

I've got slow motion on my side

Turning around and around

With the sound and colour

Under my control, go

Round and around, going down

Dressed up like a lovely day

Babyface, babyface

Tin foil hair all tied up in lace

Babyface, babyface

Bitter sweet girl

won't you give me a taste

How could beauty be so kind

To an ordinary guy

Do do do do do do do do do...do do...

Do do do do do do do do do...do do...

Babyface, babyface

Slow down child,

let me untie your lace

Babyface, babyface

Open the door,

let me unpack my case

Babyface, babyface

You're everywhere child

You're all over the place

Babyface, babyface

You're coming to me from outer-space

How could beauty be so kind

To an ordinary guy

 


Numb (4:18) :

The Edge

Bono

Don't move

Don't talk out of time

Don't think

Don't worry

Everything's just fine

Just fine

Don't grab

Don't clutch

Don't hope for too much

Don't breathe

Don't achieve

Or grieve without leave

Don't check

Just balance on the fence

Don't answer

Don't ask

Don't try and make sense

Don't whisper

Don't talk

Don't run if you can walk

Don't cheat, compete

Don't miss the one beat

Don't travel by train

Don't eat

Don't spill

Don't piss in the drain

Don't make a will

Don't fill out any forms

Don't compensate

Don't cower

Don't crawl

Don't come around late

Don't hover at the gate

Don't take it on board

Don't fall on your sword

Just play another chord

If you feel you're getting bored

I feel numb

I feel numb

Too much is not enough

I feel numb

Don't change your brand

Don't listen to the band

Don't gape

Don't ape

Don't change your shape

Have another grape

Gimme what you got

 

Gimme what I don't get

 

Gimme some more

 

Too much is not enough

I feel numb

I feel numb

Gimme some more

A piece of me, baby

I feel numb

Don't plead

Don't bridle

Don't shackle

Don't grind

Don't curve

Don't swerve

Lie, die, serve

Don't theorize, realise, polarise

Gimme some more

 

I feel numb

Gimme some more

I feel numb

Glance, dance,dismiss, apologise

Gimme what you got

Gimme what I don't get

Gimme what you got

Too much is not enough

Don't spy

Don't lie

Don't try

Imply

Detain

Explain

Start again

I feel numb

I feel numb

Don't triumph

Don't coax

Don't cling

Don't hoax

Don't freak

Peak

Don't leak

Don't speak

I feel numb

I feel numb

Don't project

Don't connect

Protect

Don't expect

Suggest

I feel numb

Don't project

Don't connect

Protect

Don't expect

Suggest

I feel numb

Don't struggle

Don't jerk

Don't collar

Don't work

Don't wish

Don't fish

Don't teach

Don't reach

I feel numb

Don't borrow

Don't break

Don't fence

Don't steal

Don't pass

Don't press

Don't try

Don't feel

Too much is not enough

I feel numb

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gimme some more

Don't touch

Don't dive

Don't suffer

Don't rhyme

Don't fantasize

Don't rise

Don't lie

I feel numb

Don't project

Don't connect

Protect

Don't expect

Suggest

I feel numb

 

 

Don't project

Don't connect

Protect

Don't expect

Suggest

I feel numb

 

 

I feel numb

 

 


Lemon (6:56) :

Lemon

See through in the sunlight

She wore lemon

But never in the daylight

She's gonna make you cry

She's gonna make you whisper and moan

And when you're dry

She draws her water from the stone

And I feel

Like I'm slowly, slowly,

Slowly slipping under

And I feel

Like I'm holding onto nothing

She wore lemon

To colour in the cold grey night

She had heaven

And she held on so tight

A man makes a picture

A moving picture

Through the light projected

He can see himself up close

A man captures colour

A man likes to stare

He turns his money into light

To look for her

And I feel

Like I'm drifting, drifting,

Drifting from the shore

And I feel

Like I'm swimming out to her

Midnight is where the day begins

Midnight is where the day begins

Midnight is where the day begins

Lemon

See through in the sunlight

A man builds a city

With banks and cathedrals

A man melts the sand so he can

See the world outside

A man makes a car

And builds a road to run them on

A man dreams of leaving

You're gonna meet her there

She's your destination

You gotta get to her

She's imagination

But he always stays behind

And these are the days

When our work has come asunder

And these are the days

When we look for something other

Midnight is where the day begins

Midnight is where the day begins

Midnight is where the day begins

Midnight is where the day begins

Midnight is where the day begins

Midnight is where the day begins

Midnight is where the day begins

Midnight is where the day begins

A man makes a picture

A moving picture

Through the light projected

He can see himself up close

A man captures colour

A man likes to stare

He turns his money into light

To look for her

She is the dreamer

She's imagination

Through the light projected

He can see himself up close

You're gonna meet her there

She's your destination

There's no sleeping there

She's imagination

Lemon

 

She had heaven

 

She wore lemon

 


 

Stay (Faraway, So Close!) (4:58) :

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 turning

but you're upside down

You say when he hits you, you don't mind

Because when he hurts you, you feel alive

Hey babe, is that what it is

Red lights, gray 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...then 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 and 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

 


 

Daddy's Gonna Pay For Your Crashed Car (5:19) :

You're a precious stone

You're out on your own

You know everyone in the world

But you feel alone

Daddy won't let you weep

Daddy won't let you ache

Daddy gives you as much as you can take

A-ha sha-la, a-ha sha-la

Daddy's gonna pay for your crashed car

A little uptight

You're a baby's fist

Butterfly kisses up and down your wrist

When you see daddy coming

You're licking your lip

Nails bitten down to the quick

A-ha sha-la, a-ha sha-la

Daddy's gonna pay for your crashed car

Daddy's gonna pay for your crashed car

You've got a head full of traffic

You're a siren's song

You cry for mama

And daddy's right along

He gives you the keys to a flamin' car

Daddy's with you wherever you are

Daddy's a comfort

Daddy's your best friend

Daddy'll hold your hand

right up to the end

A-ha sha-la, a-ha sha-la

Daddy's gonna pay for your crashed car

Daddy's gonna pay for your crashed car

Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday,

Thursday, Friday, Saturday's alright...

[Repeat and fade until end]

 


Some Days Are Better Than Others (4:15) :

Some days are dry,

some days are leaky

Some days come clean,

other days are sneaky

Some days take less,

but most days take more

Some slip through your fingers

and onto the floor

Some days you're quick,

but most days you're speedy

Some days you use more force...

...than is necessary

Some days just drop in on us

Some days are better than others

Some days it all adds up

And what you got is not enough

Some days are better than others

Some days are slippy,

other days sloppy

Some days you can't stand the sight of a puppy

Your skin is white but you think you're a brother

Some days are better than others

Some days you wake up with her complaining

Some sunny days you wish it was raining

Some days are sulky,

some days have a grin

And some days have bouncers

and won't let you in

Some days you hear a voice

Taking you to another place

Some days are better than others

Some days are honest,

some days are not

Some days you're thankful...

...for what you've got

Some days you wake up in the army

And some days it's the enemy

Some days are work,

most days you're lazy

Some days you feel like a bit of a baby

Lookin' for Jesus and His mother

Some days are better than others

Some days you feel ahead

You're making sense of what she said

Some days are better than others

Some days you hear a voice

Taking you to another place

Some days are better than others

 


The First Time (3:45) :

I have a lover

A lover like no other

She got soul, soul, soul, sweet soul

And she teach me how to sing

Shows me colours when there's none to see

Gives me hope when I can't believe

That for the first time

I feel love

I have a brother

When I'm a brother in need

I spend my whole time running

He spends his running after me

When I feel myself going down

I just call and he comes around

But for the first time

I feel love

My father is a rich man

He wears a rich man's cloak

Gave me the keys to his kingdom coming

Gave me a cup of gold

He said I have many mansions

And there are many rooms to see

But I left by the back door

And I threw away the key

And I threw away the key

Yeah, I threw away the key

Yeah, I threw away the key

For the first time

For the first time

For the first time

I feel love

 


 

Dirty Day (5:24) :

I don't know you

And you don't know the half of it

I had a starring role

I was the bad guy who walked out

They said be careful where you aim

'cause where you aim you just might hit

You can hold on to something so tight

You've already lost it

Dragging me down

That's not the way it used to be

You can't even remember

What I'm trying to forget

It was a dirty day

Dirty day

You're looking for explanations

I don't even understand

If you need someone to blame

Throw a rock in the air

You'll hit someone guilty

From father to son

In one life has begun

A work that's never done

Father to son

(And love...it won't last kissin' time)

(And love...it won't last kissin' time)

(And love...it won't last kissin' time)

Get it right

There's no blood thicker than ink

Hear what I say

Nothing's simple as you think

Wake up

Some things you can't get around

I'm in you

More so when they put me in the ground

These days, days,

days run away like horses over the hill

These days, days,

days run away like horses over the hill...

[Repeat and fade until end]

 


The Wanderer (4:44) :

I went out walking

Through streets paved with gold

Lifted some stones

Saw the skin and bones

Of a city without a soul

I went out walking

Under an atomic sky

Where the ground won't turn

And the rain it burns

Like the tears when I said goodbye

Yeah I went with nothing

Nothing but the thought of you

I went wandering

I went drifting

Through the capitals of tin

Where men can't walk

Or freely talk

And sons turn their fathers in

I stopped outside a church house

Where the citizens like to sit

They say they want the kingdom

But they don't want God in it

I went out riding

Down that old eight lane

I passed by a thousand signs

Looking for my own name

I went with nothing

But the thought you'd be there too

Looking for you

I went out there

In search of experience

To taste and to touch

And to feel as much

As a man can

Before he repents

I went out searching

Looking for one good man

A spirit who would not bend or break

Who would sit at his father's right hand

I went out walking

With a bible and a gun

The word of God lay heavy on my heart

I was sure I was the one

Now Jesus, don't you wait up

Jesus, I'll be home soon

Yeah I went out for the papers

Told her I'd be back by noon

Yeah I left with nothing

But the thought you'd be there too

Looking for you

Yeah I left with nothing

Nothing but the thought of you

I went wandering
