Vertigo 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.

"Vertigo" (live from Pasadena)

"In the case of 'Vertigo,' I was thinking about this awful nightclub we've all been to. You're supposed to be having a great time and everything's extraordinary around you and the drinks are the price of buying a bar in a Third World country. You're there and you're doing it and you're having it and you sort of don't want to be there. And it felt like the way a lot of people were feeling at that moment, as you turn on the telly or you're just looking around and you see big, fat Capitalism at the top of its mountain, just about to topple. It's that woozy, sick feeling of realizing that here we are, drinking, eating, polluting, robbing ourselves to death. And in the middle of the club, there's this girl. She has crimson nails. I don't even know if she's beautiful, it doesn't matter but she has a cross around her neck, and the character in this stares at the cross just to steady himself." - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

Honey, I’m home
Some Spanish lessons
With an Irish accent
Vamos, muchachicos

Unos, dos, tres, catorce

Lights go down
It's dark, the jungle is
Your head can't rule your heart
A feeling is so much stronger
Than a thought
Your eyes are wide
And though your soul
It can't be bought
Your mind can wander

Hello, hello
Hola
We’re at a place called Vertigo
Donde esta
It's everything I wish I didn't know
You give me something I can feel

The night is full of holes
As bullets rip the sky
Of ink with gold
They sparkle
As the boys play rock and roll
They know that they can't dance
At least they know

I can't stand the beats
I'm asking for the check
Girl with crimson nails
Has Jesus 'round her neck
Swinging to the music
Swinging to the music

Hello, hello
Hola
We’re at a place called Vertigo
Donde esta
It's everything I wish I didn't know
But you give me something I can feel
Feel

Viva Mexico
Hours of fun

All of this, all of this can be yours
All of this, all of this can be yours
All of this, all of this can be yours
Just give me what I want
And no one gets hurt

Hello, hello
Hola
We're at a place called Vertigo
Donde esta
Lights go down and all I know
Is that you give me something
I can feel your love teaching me how
Your love is teaching me how
How to kneel
Kneel

I know it’s only rock’n’roll
But I like it
I know it’s only rock’n’roll
‘Cause I like it
Like it
Yes I do

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
