"I am a singer and a songwriter but I am also a father, four times over. I am a friend to dogs. I am a sworn enemy of the saccharine; and a believer in grace over karma. I talk too much when I'm drunk and sometimes even when I'm not."

-- Bono, 2001 Harvard graduation speech

Discothèque Lyrics

Found On:


Discothèque (1997)


The Complete U2 (2004)

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.

"Discothèque" (DM Deep Club mix)

B-"I think it's an earnest little riddle about love. I guess, by implication, it's about the counterfeit of what you can't find. People take second best because it's hard to get the real shit." E-"Hahahaha! It's about drugs as well." B-"Yeah, that's one of them, but it's not just drugs. There's a lot of counterfeits out there." - Bono & The Edge, NME 1997

You can reach but you can't grab it
You can't hold it, control it, no
You can't bag it
You can push but you can't direct it
Circulate, regulate, oh no
You cannot connect it

You know you're chewing bubble gum
You know what it is but you still want some
You just can't get enough of that lovie dovie stuff

You get confused but you know it
Yeah, you hurt for it, work for it, love
You don't always show it

Let go, let's go
Discothèque
Let go, let's go, let's
Discothèque
You wanna be the one
But you know you're someone else instead
You want to be the song,
The song that you hear in your head

Love, love, love
Heaven in your heart
Love
You want heaven in your heart
Love
You want heaven in your heart
Love
You want heaven in your heart

It's not a trick, you can't learn it
It's the way you don't pay that's okay
'Cause you can't earn it
You know you're chewing bubble gum
You know what it is but you still want some
'Cause you just can't get enough of that lovie dovie stuff

Let go, let's go
Discothèque
Go go, go go
Discothèque
Looking for the one
But you know you're somewhere else instead
You want to be the song
Be the song that you hear in your head

Love, love
But you take what you can get
'Cause it's all that you can find
And you know there's something more
But tonight, tonight, tonight
And oh my

I can't get it, I can't, it's not enough
I can't get it, I can't, it's not enough
I can't get it, I can't, it's not enough
Not enough, I can't, I can't, I
I can't get it
Love
