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" (live from East Rutherford)

"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
But I won't heed the battle call
It puts my back up, my back up against the wall

Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday

And the battle's yet begun,
There's many lost, but tell me who has won
Trenches dug within our hearts
And 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, tonight

The Edge, go

Have you had enough? Have you had enough of reading on the papers, of seeing the news? Have you had enough of Beirut? Have you had enough of Nicaragua, of Belfast? Then, after me, sing.

No more
Sing no more
No more
No more
No more
No war
No more
No more
No more
No more

Wipe your tears away
Wipe your tears away
Wipe your blood-shot eyes
Sunday bloody Sunday
Wipe your tears away
Sunday bloody Sunday
I’m so sick of it

And it's true we are immune
When fact is fiction and T.V. reality, yeah
And today the millions cry
We eat and drink while tomorrow they die
Sunday bloody Sunday
The real battle yet begun
Sunday bloody Sunday
Claiming the victory until Jesus comes on

Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday

(This song can be found on the Released: The Human Rights Concerts - A Conspiracy Of Hope album)
