"Tryin' To Throw Your Arms Around The World" (Baby version)

"'Trying To Throw Your Arms Around The World' is the light relief in the middle of of a very dark piece of work. It is a nice mood to have on the album because the sound of 'Achtung Baby' is really desperation and resignation and all sorts of worrying tones inbetween." - The Edge, U2 By U2 2006

Springing this up, ok
My man, jah man

Six o'clock in the morning
You're the last to hear the warning
You've been trying to throw your arms around the world

You've been falling off the sidewalk
Your lips move but you can't talk
You've been trying to throw your arms around the world

I'm gonna run to you, run to you, run to you
Woman be still
I'm gonna run to you, run to you, run to you
Woman be still
Woman I will

Sunrise like a nosebleed
Your head hurts and you can't breathe
You've been trying to throw your arms around the world

You want to eat and still be skinny
You want the prize without the winning
When you're trying to throw your arms around the world

I'm gonna run to you, run to you, run to you
Woman be still
I'm gonna run to you, run to you, run to you
Woman be still

Oh, I dreamed that I saw Dali
With a supermarket trolly
He was trying to throw his arms around the world
He was trying to throw his arms around a girl

He took open-top Beetle
Through the eye of a needle
He was trying to throw your arms around the world

I'm gonna run to you, run to you, run to you
Woman be still
I'm gonna run to you, run to you, run to you
Woman be still

Your head feels like a cabbage
And you know you're kinda savage
You've been trying to throw your arms around the world

And a woman needs a man
Like a fish needs a bicycle
You've been trying to throw your arms around the world

I'm gonna run to you, run to you, run to you
I'm gonna run to you, run to you, run to you
I'm gonna run to you, run to you, run to you
I'm gonna run to you, run to you, run to you
Woman be still
Woman be still
Woman be still
Woman I will
