Achtung Baby

Zoo Station
Even better than the real thing
One
Until The End Of The World
Who's gonna ride your wild horses
So cruel
The Fly
Mysterious Ways
Tryin' to throw your arms around the world
Ultra Violet - (Light My Way)
Acrobat
Love Is Blindness

The Joshua Tree

Where the streets have no name
I still haven't found what i'm looking for
With or without you
Bullet the blue sky
Running to stand still
Red hill mining town
In god's country
Trip through your wires
One tree hill
Exit
Mothers of the disappeared

 
     

     
 


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
There will be a 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

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 chance
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

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
Can you take me higher?
Will 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.

 


Johnny toke 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

She's slippy
Your'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
She moves in mysterious ways
It's alright...it's alright...it's alright
Lift my days...light up my nights

One day you'll look back
And you'll see
Where
You were held how
By this love
While
You could stand
There
And not 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
We move through miracle days
Spirit moves in mysterious ways
She woves with it
She woves with it
Lift my days and light up my nights




I have got you under my skin
I`ve got you deep in the heart of me
So deep in my heart
You`re nearly a part of me
I`ve got you under my skin

I have tried so not to give in
I have said to myself this affair
Never gonna go somewhere
But why should I try to resist
When baby I know so well
That I`ve got you under my skin
I would sacrafice anything
Come what might
For the sake of holding you near
In spite of a warning voice
That comes in the night
It repeats and it shouts in my ear

Don`t you know blue-eyes
You never can win
Use your mentality
Wake up to reality
But each time I do
Just the thought of you
Makes me stop before I begin
`Cause I`ve got you under my skin

I`d sacrifice anything
Come what might
For the sake of having you near
In spite of a warning voice
That comes in the night
It repeats and it shouts in my ear

Don`t you know ya old fool
You never can win
Use your mentality
Wake up to reality
But each time that I do
Just the thought of you
Makes me stop before I begin
`Cause I`ve got you under my skin
And I love you when you`re under my skin


SUMMER stretching on the grass... summer dresses pass
in the shade of a willow tree creeps a crawling over me
over me and over you stuck together with God's glue
it's going to get stickier too...
it's been a long hot summer
let's go undercover
don't try too hard to think... don't think at all

I'm not the only one starin' at the sun
afraid of what you'd find if you took a look inside
not just deaf and dumb I'm staring at the sun
not the only one who's happy to go blind

there's an insect in your ear if you scratch it won't disappear
it's gonna itch and burn and sting
do you want to see what the scratching brings
waves that leave me out of reach
breaking on your back like a beach...
will we ever live in peace?
cause those that can't do often have to
those that can't do often have to... preach

to the ones staring at the sun...
afraid of what you'll find if you took a look inside
not just deaf and dumb... staring at the sun
I'm not the only one who'd rather go blind
intransigence is all around... military is still in town
armour plated suits and ties... daddy just won't say goodbye
referee won't blow the whistle God is good but will HE listen
i'm nearly great
but there's something I'm missing I left in the duty free
though you never really belonged to me

you're not the only one staring at the sun
afraid of what you'd find if you stepped back inside
I'm not sucking my thumb I'm staring at the sun
not the only one who's happy to go blind

 

Yes...

I can't believe the news today
Oh, I can't close my eyes
And make it go away
How long...
How long must we sing this song?
How long? How long...
'cause tonight...we can be as one
Tonight...

Broken bottles under children's feet
Bodies strewn across the dead end street
But I won't heed the battle call
It puts my back up
Puts my back up against the wall

Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday

And the battle's just begun
There's many lost, but tell me who has won
The trench is dug within our hearts
And mothers, children, brothers, sisters
Torn apart

Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday

How long...
How long must we sing this song?
How long? How long...
'cause tonight...we can be as one
Tonight...tonight...

Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday

Wipe the tears from your eyes
Wipe your tears away
Oh, wipe your tears away
Oh, wipe your tears away
(Sunday, Bloody Sunday)
Oh, wipe your blood shot eyes
(Sunday, Bloody Sunday)
Sunday, Bloody Sunday (Sunday, Bloody Sunday)
Sunday, Bloody Sunday (Sunday, Bloody Sunday)

And it's true we are immune
When fact is fiction and TV reality
And today the millions cry
We eat and drink while tomorrow they die

(Sunday, Bloody Sunday)

The real battle just begun
To claim the victory Jess won
On...

Sunday Bloody Sunday
Sunday Bloody Sunday...


I want to run
I want to hide
I want to tear down the walls
That hold me inside
I want to reach out
And touch the flame
Where the streets have no name

I want to feel, sunlight on my face
See that dust cloud disappear without a trace
I want to take shelter from the poison rain
Where the streets have no name

Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
We're still building
Then burning down love, burning down love
And when I go there
I go there with you...
(It's all I can do)

The cities a flood
And our love turns to rust
We're beaten and blown by the wind
Trampled into dust
I'll show you a place
High on ta desert plain
Where the streets have no name

Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
Still building
Then burning down love
Burning down love
And when I go there
I go there with you
(It's all I can do)


Nobody else here baby
No one here to blame
No one to point the finger
It's just you and me and the rain

It's the blind leading the blond
It's the stuff, it's the stuff of country songs

If God will send his angels
And if God will send a sign
And if God will send his visions
Would everything be alright

God has got his phone off the hook, babe
Would he even pick up if he could
It's been a while since we saw that child
Hanging 'round this neighborhood
You see his mother dealing in a doorway
See Father Christmas with a begging bowl
Jesus sister's eyes are a blister
The High Street never looked so low

It's the blind, leading the blond
It's the cops collecting for the cons

If God will send his angels
And if God will send a sign
And if God will send his visions
Where do we go
Where do we go

Jesus never let me down
You know Jesus used to show me the score
Then they put Jesus in show business
Now it's hard to get in the door

It's the stuff, it's the stuff of country songs
But I guess it was something to go on

So where is the hope and where is the faith
And the love...what's that you say to me
Does love...light up your Christmas Tree
The next minute your blowing a fuse
And the cartoon network turns into the news

If God will send his angels
I sure could use them here right now
Well if God would send his angels
Where do we go

I don't need to lie
I don't need to know
And I don't want to promise
And I don't want to lie
I just want to feel the song

 


My love she throws me like a rubber ball
Oh oh oh the sweetest thing
But she won't catch me, or break my fall
Oh oh oh the sweetest thing
Baby's got blu skies overhead
But in this I'm a raincloud
You know she likes a dry kind of love
Oh oh oh the sweetest thing

I'm losing you
Oh oh oh, I'm losing you yeah
Ain't love the sweetest thing
The sweetset thing

I wanted to run, she made me crawl
Oh oh oh the sweetest thing
Eternal fire, she turned me to straw
Oh oh oh the sweetest thing
You know I got black eyes
Buy they burn so brightly for her
Mine is a blind kind of love
Oh oh oh the sweetest thing

[I'm loosing you....]

Blue eyed boy meets a brown-eyed girl
Oh oh oh the sweetest thing
You can sew it up
But you still see the tear
Oh oh oh the sweetest thing
Baby's got blue skies overhead
But in this I'm a raincloud
You know we got a stormy kind of love
Oh oh oh the sweetest thing


See the stone set in your eyes
See the thorn twist in your side
I wait for you
Sleight of hand and twist of fate
On a bed of nails she makes me wait
And I wait....without you

With or without you
With or without you

Through the storm we reach the shore
You give it all but I want more
And I'm waiting for you

With or without you
With or without you
I can't live
With or without you

And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give
And you give
And you give yourself away

My hands are tied
My body bruised, she's got me with
Nothing to win
And nothing left to lose

With or without you
With or without you
I can't live
With or without you



The heart is a bloom, shoots up through the stony ground
But thereís no room, no space to rent in this town
Youíre out of luck and the reason that you had to care,
The trafic is stuck and youíre not moving anywhere.
You thought youíd find a friend to take you out of this place
Someone you could lend a hand in return for grace

Itís a beautiful day, the sky falls
And you feel like itís a beautiful day
Itís a beautiful day
Donít let it get away

Youíre on the road but youíre got no destination
Youíre in the mud, in the maze of her imagination
You love this town even if it doesnít ring true
Youíve been all over and itís been all over you

Itís a beautiful day
Donít let it get away
Itís a beautiful day
Donít let it get away

Touch me, take me to that other place
Teach me, I know Iím not a hopeless case

See the world in green and blue
See China right in front of you
See the canyons broken by cloud
See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out
See the Bedouin fires at night
See the oil fields at first light
See the bird with a leaf in her mouth
After the flood all the colours came out

It was a beautiful day
Beautiful day
Donít let it get away

Touch me, take me to that other place
Reach me, I know Iím not a hopeless case

What you donít have you donít need it now
What you donít know you can feel it somehow
What you donít have you donít need it now
What you donít need it now, you donít need it now

Beautiful day


I'm not afraid
Of anything in this world
There's nothing you can throw at me
That I haven't already heard

I'm just trying to find
A decent melody
A song that I can sing
In my own company

I never thought you were a fool
But darling look at you
You gotta stand up straight
Carry your own weight
These tears are going nowhere baby

You've got to get yourself together
You've got stuck in a moment
And now you can't get out of it

Don't say that later will be better
Now you're stuck in a moment
And you can't get out of it

I will not forsake
The colors that you bring
The nights you filled with fireworks
They left you with nothing

I am still enchanted
By the light you brought to me
I listen through your ears
Through your eyes I can see

And you are such a fool
To worry like you do
I know it's tough
And you can never get enough
Of what you don't really need now
My, oh my

You've got to get yourself together
You've got stuck in a moment
And you can't get out of it

Oh love, look at you now
You've got yourself stuck in a moment
And you can't get out of it

I was unconscious, half asleep
The water is warm 'til you discover how deep

I wasn't jumping, for me it was a fall
It's a long way down to nothing at all

You've got to get yourself together
You've got stuck in a moment
And you can't get out of it

Don't say that later will be better
Now you're stuck in a moment
And you can't get out of it

And if the night runs over
And if the day won't last
And if our way should falter
Along the stony pass

And if the night runs over
And if the day won't last
And if your way should falter
Along this stony pass
