Lucifer's Hands lyrics by U2


Lucifer's Hands lyrics by U2

As featured on the deluxe version of Songs of Innocence.

Lyrics


Punk rock party in a suburban home

Everybody's famous here, but nobody's known

We got no music 'cos the speaker's blown... apart


The spirit is moving through a seaside town

I'm born again to the latest sound

New wave, airwaves, swimming around my heart, uh huh.


You no longer got a hold on me

With lucifer's hands

You no longer got a hold on me

You're no longer in control of me

I am...


An enemy's spin from an inky page

St. John Devine is going to take the stage

I can tell your talent is your rage, I'm in..


.. the player is on fire ..


You no longer got a hold on me

With lucifer's hands

You no longer got a hold on me

You're no longer in control of me

I am...




Woah.. yes I can change the world

Woah.. yes I can change the world

The fool breaking breaking bread is made out of stone

The rich man won't eat he is eating alone

That's easy

I can't change the world in me




You no longer got a hold on me

With lucifer's hands

You no longer got a hold on me

You're no longer in control of me

I am...

Check out the lyrics to the song, The Troubles also from the same U2 album.

Every Breaking Wave Lyrics by U2

Every Breaking Wave Lyrics by U2

U2 debuted Every Breaking Way during the during the 360 Tour.  In a vastly different form, it now features on the studio album Songs of Innocence which was released on 9 September 2014 for free via Apple's itunes music service.

Rolling Stone magazine suggested that the song's subject matter appears "to deal more adult concerns: a long-term relationship, distractions, and the struggles that come from both".

Lyrics

Every breaking wave on the shore
Tells the next one there'll be one more
And every gambler knows that to lose
Is what you're really there for

Summer I was fearless
Now I speak into an answer phone
Like every silent leave on the breeze
Winter wouldn't leave it alone
Alone

If you go
If you go your way and I go mine
Are we so
Are we so helpless against the tide
Baby, every dog on the street
Knows that we’re in love with defeat
Are we ready to be swept off our feet
And stop chasing every breaking wave

Every sailor knows that the sea
Is a friend made enemy
And every shipwrecked soul knows what it is
To live without intimacy

I thought I heard the captain’s voice
It's hard to listen while you preach
Like every broken wave on the shore
This was as far as I can reach

If you go
If you go your way and I go mine
Are we so
Are we so helpless against the tide
Baby, every dog on the street
Knows that we’re in love with defeat
Are we ready to be swept off our feet
And stop chasing every breaking wave

The waves know where are the rocks
And drowning is no sin
You know where my heart is
The same place that yours has been
And we know the fear to win
And so we end before we begin
Before we begin

If you go
If you go your way and I go mine
Are we so
Are we so helpless against the tide
Baby, every dog on the street
Knows that we’re in love with defeat
Are we ready to be swept off our feet
And stop chasing every breaking wave

 'This is where you can reach me now' lyrics by U2

This song is from Ireland's finest, U2. Taken from their studio album, Songs of Ascent.

Lyrics

Soldier, soldier
We signed our lives away
Complete surrender
The only weapon we know
Soldier soldier
We knew the world would never be the same
Solider, this is where you can reach me now

We come from an ancient place
Beyond what we can see
We’ve come to colonise your night
And steal your poetry

Old man knows that I never listen
So how could I have something to say
Old man knows how to cheat ambition
You don’t lose if you don’t play

1 2 3 4 was enough

Soldier, soldier
We signed our lives away
Complete surrender
The only weapon we know
Soldier soldier
We knew the world would never be the same
Solider, this is where you can reach me now

In a double decker bus
Into College Square
If you won’t let us in your world
Your wold just isn’t there
If you won’t let us in your world
Your world just isn’t there

Old man says that we never listen
We shout about what we don’t know
We’re taking the path of most resistance
The only way for us to go

Hup 2 3 4 was enough

Soldier, soldier
We signed our lives away
Complete surrender
The only weapon we know
Soldier soldier
We knew the world would never be the same
Solider, this is where you can reach me now

This is the site
This is the season
This is where you can reach me now
This is the time
This is the number
This is where you can reach me now

Sleep like a baby tonight lyrics U2

Sleep like a baby tonight lyrics by U2

This song can be found on U2's studio album, Songs of Innocence.

Lyrics


Morning, your toast

Your tea and sugar

Read about the politician’s lover

Go through the day

Like a knife through butter

Why don’t you

You dress in the colours of forgiveness

Your eyes as red as Christmas

Purple robes are folded on the kitchen chair




You’re gonna sleep like a baby tonight

In your dreams everything is alright

Tomorrow dawns like someone else’s suicide

You’re gonna sleep like a baby tonight




Dreams

It’s a dirty business, dreaming

Where there is silence and not screaming

Where there’s no daylight

There’s no healing, no no




You’re gonna sleep like a baby tonight

In your dreams everything is alright

Tomorrow dawns like a suicide

But you’re gonna sleep like a baby tonight




Hope is where the door is

When the church is where the war is

Where no one can feel no one else’s pain




You’re gonna sleep like a baby tonight

In your dreams everything is alright

Tomorrow dawns like a suicide

But you’re gonna sleep like a baby tonight

Sleep like a baby tonight

Like a bird, your dreams take flight

Like St. Francis covered in light

You’re gonna sleep like a baby tonight

Check out the lyrics to The Miracle (of Joey Ramone) or Cedarwood Road.

Cedarwood Road lyrics by U2

Cedarwood Road lyrics by U2

I was running down the road
The fear was all I knew
I was looking for a soul that’s real
Then I ran into you
And that cherry blossom tree
Was a gateway to the sun
And friendship, once it’s won
It’s won, it’s one

Northside 
Just across the river to the Southside
That’s a long way here

All the green and all the gold
The hurt you hide
The joy you hold
The foolish pride
That gets you out the door
Up on Cedarwood Road
On Cedarwood Road

Sleepwalking down the road
Not waking from these dreams
‘Cause it’s never dead
It’s still my dead
It was a warzone in my teens
I’m still standing on that street
Still need an enemy
The worst ones I can’t see
You can, you can

Northside 
Just across the river to the Southside
That’s a long way here

All the green and all the gold
The hurt you hide
And the joy you hold
The foolish pride
That sends you back for more
Up on Cedarwood Road
On Cedarwood Road

If the door is open it isn’t theft
You can’t return to where you’ve never left
Blossoms falling from a tree
They cover you and cover me
Symbols clashing, bibles smashing
Paint the world you need to see
Sometimes fear is the only place
That we can call our home
Cedarwood Road

And a heart that is broken 
Is a heart that is open
Open, open

Raised by Wolves lyrics by U2



Raised by Wolves lyrics by U2

Face down on a broken street
There’s a man in the corner
In a pool of misery
I’m in white van
As a red sea covers the ground

Metal crash
I can’t tell what it is
But I take a look
And now I’m sorry I did
5:30 on a Friday night
33 good people cut down

I don’t believe anymore
I don’t believe anymore

Face down on a pillow of shame
There are some girls with a needle
Tryin’ to spell my name
My body’s not a canvas
My body’s now a toilet wall

I don’t believe anymore
I don’t believe anymore

Raised by wolves
Stronger than fear
Raised by wolves
We were raised by wolves
Raised by wolves
Stronger than fear
If I open my eyes
You disappear

Running wild
Running wild

Running wild
Boy sees his father
Crushed under the weight
Of a cross in a passion
Where the passion is hate
Running wild
Blue mink Ford
I’m gonna detonate in your den
Running wild
Blood in the house
Blood in the street
The worst things in the world
Are justified by belief
Running wild
Registration 1385-WZ

Running wild
I don’t believe anymore
Running wild
I don’t believe anymore

Raised by wolves
Stronger than fear
Raised by wolves
We were raised by wolves
Raised by wolves
Stronger than fear
If I open my eyes
You disappear

Running wild
Running wild
Running wild
Running wild
Running wild
