Handwritten Lyrics

"Where The Streets Have No Name" (live from Pasadena)

"We can be in the middle of the worst gig in our lives, but when we go into that song, everything changes. The audience is on its feet, singing along with every word. It's like God suddenly walks through the room. It's the point where craft ends and spirit begins. How else do you explain it?" - Bono, Los Angeles Times 2004

I want to run, I want to hide
I want to tear down the walls that hold me inside
I want to reach out and touch the flame
Where the streets have no name

I want to feel sunlight on my face
See the dust cloud disappear without a trace
I want to take shelter from the hurricane
Where the streets have no name

Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
Still building, then burning down love
Burning down love
And when I go there I go there with you
It's all I wanna do

The cities a flood, our love turns to rust
We're beaten and blown by the wind, trampled in dust
I'll show you a place, it’s high, high
Where the streets have no name

Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
Still we’re building, then burning down love
Burning down love
And when I go there I go there with you
Sheryl Blanks
It's all I wanna do

Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
Still building, then burning down love
Burning down love
And when I go there I go there with you
It's all I wanna do
