Sunday Bloody Sunday 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.

"Sunday Bloody Sunday" (live from Pasadena)

"We were trying to be the Who meets the Clash. I spent minutes on these things rather than hours. So 'Sunday Bloody Sunday,' which was supposed to contrast Easter Sunday with the death of thirteen protesters in Derry on Bloody Sunday, didn't quite come off. And yet melodically and the suggestion of the lyrics stood up to the test of time. I've changed the lyrics when I sing it now just to make it more believable for myself. I don't think anyone else notices. But that's a great song - mostly Edge's song." - Bono, Rolling Stone 2005

Can you hear us

Can't believe the news today
I can't close my eyes and make it go away

How long, how long must we sing this song
How long, how long
Tonight we can be as one, tonight

Broken bottles under children's feet
Bodies strewn across a dead end street
I won't heed the battle call
It puts my back up
Puts my back up against the wall

Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday

I’m sobered up

And this battle's yet begun
Many lost, but tell me who has won
Strives for bull sins the in the battle of your heart
Tries for the poachers, they’ll make you off

Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday

How long, how long must we sing this song
How long, how long
Tonight we can be as one
Tonight, tonight
Tonight, tonight
Tonight, tonight

Wipe your tears away
Wipe your tears away
Sunday bloody Sunday
Wipe your blood-stained eyes
Sunday bloody Sunday
Wipe your tears away

Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday

Yeah, shoot your heart
You’re moving in the song
And the brutal hand
In the telltale line
And it’s slipping in the side
Your heartbreak days beside me
Your soft snake right behind me
You write your love on a cedar
Gonna write your love on a runner

Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
