Even Better Than The Real Thing Lyrics

"Even Better Than The Real Thing" (Trance mix)

"It was originally called 'The Real Thing,' which is a dumb title for a song. 'Even Better Than The Real Thing' is much more reflective of the times we were living in, when people were no longer looking for the truth, we are all looking for instant gratification. It's not substantial as a lyric but it suggests a certain sexual tension and desire to have some fun playing in the shallows. Sliding down the surface of things. There is a moment when you want to read a magazine, not a novel." - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

Take me higher
Take me higher
Take me higher

You're the real thing
You're the real thing
You're the real thing
Even better than the real thing

You're the real thing
You're the real thing
You're the real thing
Even better than the real thing

Take me higher
Take me higher
Take me higher
Take me higher
Take me higher
Take me higher
Take me higher
Take me higher
Take me higher
Take me higher
Take me higher
Take me higher
Take me higher
Take me higher
