"Stuck In A Moment You Can't Get Out Of" (live from Pasadena)

"I think other people who have lost a mate to suicide will all tell you the same thing-just the overpowering guilt that you weren't there for that person. As anyone around here will tell you, friendship is a thing that I hold very sacred. Cocteau, I think he only wrote one serious essay in his life, and it was on the subject of friendship-friendship is higher than love... Can you really be that busy that you don't notice your mate on the slide, as it were?... I just remember feeling this overpowering sense of guilt. And then anger. and then annoyance. That song is an argument. It's a row between mates. You're trying to slap somebody around the face, trying to wake them up out of an idea. In my case it's a row I didn't have while he was alive." - Bono, Rolling Stone 2001

The Zen Presbyterian
He doesn’t speak much, but when he does

I'm not afraid of anything in this world
There's nothing you can throw at me
That I haven't already heard
I'm just trying to find a decent melody
A song that I can sing in my own company

I never thought you were a fool
But darling, look at you
You gotta stand up straight, carry your own weight
These tears are going nowhere, baby

You've got to get yourself together
You've got stuck in a moment and you can't get out of
Don't say that later will be better
Now you're stuck in a moment and you can't get out of it

I will not forsake the colours that you bring
But the nights you filled with fireworks
That leave you with nothing
I am still enchanted by the light you brought to me
I still listen through your ears
And through your eyes I can see

And you are such a fool to worry like you do
I know it's tough and you can never get enough
Of what you don't really need now, my oh my

You've got to get yourself together
You've got stuck in a moment and now you can't get out of it
Oh love, look at you now
Stuck in a moment and you can't get out of it

I was unconscious, half asleep
The water is warm till you discover how deep
I wasn't jumping, for me it was a fall
It's a long way down to nothing at all

You've got to get yourself together
You've got stuck in a moment and now you can't get out of it
Don't say that later will be better
Now you're stuck in a moment and you can't get out of it

And if the night runs over
And if the day won't last
And if our way should falter
Along the stony pass
And if the night runs over
And if the days won't last
And if our way should falter
Along the stony pass
It’s just a moment
It’s just a moment
It’s just a moment
It’s just a moment
It's just a moment, this too shall pass
