Beautiful Day 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.

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

"'Beautiful Day' has a directness reminiscent of early U2 but with Edge bringing a dizziness and futuristic quality so that it doesn't feel retro. The guitar chords were nothing special but they were my attempt to get the album airborne, the way a rock band like the Buzzcocks would. The lyric expresses amazement, really, that whatever situation you find yourself in, as uncomfortable and upsetting as they can be, if you're alive and you are awake, then you have perspective on it... Pain is evidence of life because it reminds you there are things in your life that aren't right. So you should be thankful for it really and celebrate that there is so much to live for." - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

The heart is a bloom
It shoots up through the stony ground
But there's no room
No space to rent in this town
When you're out of luck
And the reason that you had to care
The traffic is stuck
And you're not moving anywhere
You thought you'd found three friends
To take you out of this place
Someone you could lend a hand
In return for grace

It's a beautiful day
The sky falls, you feel like
It's a beautiful day
Day, day

You're on the road
But you've got no destination
You're in the mud
In the maze of her imagination
You love this town
Even if that doesn't ring true
You've been all over
And it's been all over you

It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away
It's a beautiful day
Day, day

You can touch me
Take me to another place
You can teach me, love
I know I'm not a hopeless case
Yeah yeah

See the world in green and blue
Jan Wenner, right beside you
See the canyons broken by clouds
See the tuna fleet clearing the sea out
See the Bedouin fires at night
See the oil fields at first light
See the bird with a leaf in her mouth
After the flood all the colours came out, out

Day, day

It was a beautiful day
Don't let it get away
A beautiful day
Day, day

You touch me
Take me to that other place
Teach me now, love
I know I'm not a hopeless case

And what you don't have you don't need it now
What you don't know you can feel somehow
What you don't have you don't need it now
Don't need it now
Beautiful day

This is the city
And there’s no other place right now
God keep us safe
This beautiful day
Got soul, you got soul
You got soul, soul, sing it
Soul, soul, soul, soul
Soul, soul, soul

Take me now, baby, here as I am
Through the song to sing
Desire is the hunger is the fire I breathe
And love is a banquet on which we feed
Love is a banquet on which we feed
Love is a blanket, blanket

Thank you

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