"We grow up with this rather juvenile idea that people who are not like us don't get it -- the suits don't get it -- but it doesn't make sense anymore. Sometimes the enemy is your own indifference."

Sunday Bloody Sunday Lyrics

Found On:


The Joshua Tree (1987)

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 New York)

"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

Sunday Bloody Sunday

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
And bodies strewn across a dead end street
But I won't heed the battle call
It puts my back up
Back up against the wall

Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
Alright, let’s go

And this battle's yet begun
There's many lost
But tell me who has won
The 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
Do it

Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
We're so sick of it, yeah

And it's true we are immune
When fact is fiction and T.V. reality
And today the millions cry
We eat and drink while tomorrow they die
Sunday bloody Sunday
The real battle yet begun
Sunday bloody Sunday
Will claim the victory for Jesus’ sons
Yeah

Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
