Found On:

"Discothèque" (DM Deep Extended 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 that 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 go
Discothèque
Let go, let's go, let's go
Discothèque
You wanna be the one
But you know you're someone else instead
You want to be the song
Be the song that you hearing

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
Love
You want heaven in your heart

It's not a trick 'cause 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 that is but you still want some
You just can't get enough of that lovie dovie stuff
Let go, let's go
Discothèque
Go go, go go
Discothèque
Love, love
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, not enough
