U2 randomness

Since I started to put a different set of random lyrics in my signature each day some of the members and especially EosD have shown some interest. This has had the unfair effect of taking people's legitimate threads off topic so I thought I would just start this here to discuss anything vaguely relevant

Yesterdays lyrics where..

Have you come here for forgiveness
Have you come here to raise the dead
Have you come here to play Jesus
To the leapers in your head

Correctly identified by EosD as being from "One"

Today’s are..

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.

Again EosD has correctly identified them as being from "So Cruel"

Now who else like me thinks he is using Google?

If he's as big a U2 fan as I am, I doubt he needed Google.

Try this one:

"You lead me on with those innocent eyes"

"A man melts the sand so he can see the world outside."

Its a little tougher but not quite in the difficult group yet

No using Google

A man melts the sand so he can see the world outside

A man makes a car
destination
And builds roads to run them on
A man dreams of leaving
But he always stays behind

Lemon U2
I'm also a big U2 fan. took me a while to work it out.

Try this one. "And did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts"

Quite easy really, and it's not U2.

Anyone see Floyd at Live8 a few months ago?

I only saw it on TV but it was very 'moving' - Floyd back together after all this time.

never really got the hang of Lemon, an OK song, but nothing great, noteworthy more for the fact that the edge 'sang' it

the floyd, pretty much every song from dark side onwards can be recited at will, timeless.

Live8 was great, i waited all day to see it and it was worth every second.

Live 8 was spot on. There were only two acts that spoilt the day - Madonna was one, and Snoop Crappy Dogg was the other.

Why they felt the need to use the 'f' word repeatedly during their performances, knowing full well that millions of kids would be watching.... just can't weigh that up. Wasn't at all necessary imho.

Another day and another rather excellent lyric.

"Oh my love it’s a long way we’ve come
From the freckled hills to the steel and glass canyons
From the stony fields to hanging steel from the sky
From digging in our pockets for a reason not to say goodbye."

Yes, still U2 but much more recent.

I just love how descriptive and how big a visual it paints with so few words.

Thats the one, it is a fantastic song and I would urge anyone that has not heard it to give it at least one listen.

A day late but another change in lyric anyway..

"We scorch the earth, set fire to sky
Steep so low to reach so high
A link is lost, chain undone
We wait all day for night to come
And it comes, like a hunter, child."

Guesses welcomed as usual.

Hey guys, I'm a huge U2 fan as well but I can't pinpoint the lyrics like that without any music to sing too. Someone's using google!

really.....hmmm. Well this is my favorite line of theirs.


We fight, all the time, it's alright.
Were the same souls, you and I.

Now we all know what song those come from if there are some U2 fans here. I can't believe how long they have been around too. Makes me feel old,lol

Hmmm, not sure banning me for not loving the egotistical one is particularly fair but......

I really don't think he has anything to offer. He doesn't write his own songs and steals his showmanship from greats such as Sinatra. It's all just re-packaged post-modernist B/S as far as I'm concerned.

However, as always, I'm respectful of other peoples tastes and opinions and if that's whats really floats your boats then good for you!

back on topic (sort of) Annie lennox made me cry when she did 'Why?' and Da Floyd were amazing. As were scissor sisters
