Sunday Bloody Sunday 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.

"Sunday Bloody Sunday" (Agit8 Version)

"We were trying to be the Who meets the Clash. I spent minutes on these things rather than hours. So 'Sunday Bloody Sunday,' which was supposed to contrast Easter Sunday with the death of thirteen protesters in Derry on Bloody Sunday, didn't quite come off. And yet melodically and the suggestion of the lyrics stood up to the test of time. I've changed the lyrics when I sing it now just to make it more believable for myself. I don't think anyone else notices. But that's a great song - mostly Edge's song." - Bono, Rolling Stone 2005

I can't believe the news today
I can't close my eyes, make it go away

How long, how long must we sing this song
How long, how long
Tonight we can be as one, tonight

Broken bottles under children's feet
Bodies strewn across a dead end street
I won't heed the battle call
Puts my back up, my back up against the wall

Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday

And the battle's yet begun
There's many lost, but tell me who has won
The trenches dug within our hearts
Mothers, children, brothers, sisters torn apart

Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday

How long, how long must we sing this song
How long, how long
Tonight we can be as one
Tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight

On another broken hill
Red crosses and crescent moon collides
Pilgrims pray to know God's will
Scratching in the dirt
Signing up to die
Scorched earth or a cruel sun
Is this the battle Jesus won on

Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
