"[I]t's absurd that a singer in a rock band puts on a pinstripe suit and goes for a walk down Wall Street banging on doors. But you know what? They opened."

Discothèque Lyrics

Found On:

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.

"Discothèque" (live from Chicago)

B-"I think it's an earnest little riddle about love. I guess, by implication, it's about the counterfeit of what you can't find. People take second best because it's hard to get the real shit." E-"Hahahaha! It's about drugs as well." B-"Yeah, that's one of them, but it's not just drugs. There's a lot of counterfeits out there." - Bono & The Edge, NME 1997

You can reach but you can't grab it
You can't hold it, control it, no
You can't bag it

You can push but you can't direct it
Circulate, regulate, oh no
You cannot connect it

It's love falling from above
Love falling from above

You know you're chewing bubble-gum
You know what that is but you still want some
You just can't get enough
Of that lovey-dovey stuff

You get confused but you know it
Yeah, you hurt for it, work for it, love
You don't always show it

Let go, woah woah woah
Discothèque
Let go, oh woah woah
Discothèque

Looking for the one
But you know you're somewhere else instead
You wanna be the song
Be the song that you hear in your head

Love falling from above
Love

It's not a trick 'cause you can't learn it
It's the way you don't pay that's ok
'Cause you can't earn it, no

You know you're chewing bubble-gum
You know what that is but you still want some
You just can't get enough of that lovey-dovey stuff

Let go
Discothèque
Let go
Discothèque

Looking for the one
But you know you're somewhere else instead
You wanna be the song
Be the song that you hear in your head

Love falling from above
And you take what you can get
'Cause it's all that you can find
You know there's something more
But tonight, tonight, tonight
You don't mind

Let go
Discothèque
Let go
Discothèque, discothèque
Let go
Discothèque
Let go
Discothèque

This is a love song
This is a love song
This is a love song
This is a love song

(This version was never released but was performed live on the Vertigo tour)
