"If you look at music as emotion, then I think you'll connect us to the ballad tradition, to the wailing and keening of the old music."

Mysterious Ways Lyrics

Found On:


U2360 Live From The Rose Bowl (2010)

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.

"Mysterious Ways" (live from Pasadena)

"It is U2 at our funkiest. Sexy music. Sly and The Family Stone meets Manchester baggy. We came up with a few different verses but Edge really liked the nursery rhyme feel we ended up with... It's a song about a man living on little or no romance. We were going to call the album Fear Of Women at one point. Edge came up with the 'It's all right, it's all right' coda. He wanted to prove a point. He said, 'We've never had a song that says it's alright.' So I said, 'All right.' - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

Get up off your big fat ass now

Johnny, take 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
Child

She's slippy, you're sliding down
Yeah, she gonna 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
Oh love

Johnny, take a dive with your sister in the rain
Let her talk about the things you cannot 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 that turned 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
Oh my love, oh my love
Lift my days, light up my nights, love

Put your hands in the air
Jump, jump
Put ‘em up, there you go
Over to Adam
Over to the Edge
Over to the Edge

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
She moves in mysterious ways
Oh, my silver love
Oh, my soul tonight
She moves, she moves
We move, move
Move me, spirit, teach me
Move me, spirit, reach me
Move me, spirit, teach me
Teach me to move with it
She moves with it
Lift my days, light up my nights

Oh, be still
Night be still
