Magnificent Lyrics

Found On:


I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight (2009)

Note: U2 has released different versions of most singles in different countries. We are not showing every cover image in this space, just one that's representative of each release.

"Magnificent" (live from Boston)

"Sometimes, a day or two can go by, and then out of nowhere something arrives that is truly brilliant. Maybe a great groove or just a great series of chord changes. That is what happened with 'Magnificent.' The basic chord progression had a power that got everyone inspired. I think we all knew that it was inherently joyful, which is rare." - The Edge, No Line On The Horizon, 2009

Somerville is a Broadville theatre
Not for shy people like myself

Magnificent
Oh, magnificent



I was born
I was born to be with you 

In this space and time

After that and ever after
I haven't had a clue
Only to break rhyme
This foolishness can leave a heart
Black and blue



Only love
Only love can leave such a mark

But only love
Only love can heal such a scar


I was born
I was born to sing for you 

I didn't have a choice
But to lift you up
And sing whatever song you wanted me to
I give you back my voice
From the womb my first cry
It was a joyful noise
Oh, oh

Only love
Only love can leave such a mark

But only love
Only love can heal such a scar


Justified till we die
You and I will magnify

Oh, the magnificent

Magnificent

Only love
Only love can leave such a mark

Only love
Only love resets the heart

Justified till we die
You and I will magnify
Oh, the magnificent

Magnificent
, magnificent
