Vertigo 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.

"Vertigo" (live from The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame)

"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

Alright, some Spanish lessons, Irish-style
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

Except you give me something I can feel

Feel



The night is full of holes

As bullets rip the sky

Of ink with gold

They twinkle 

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


Come over, rock-rock-rock and roll

Checkmated

Hours of fun

You’re made of song

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

It’s everything I wish I didn’t know
Lord, I’m still down

I can feel your love teaching me how

Your love is teaching me how

How to kneel

Kneel


I know it’s only rock and roll
But I like it, yes I do
I know it’s only rock and roll
But I like it
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

(This song can be found on the 25th Anniversary of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Concert album)
