"Our music is primarily uplifting, but at the same time there's a realism to our music as opposed to an escapism."

Discothèque Lyrics

Found On:


Discothèque (1997)


The Best Of 1990-2000 (2002)


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" (Hexidecimal 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
You can push
But you can't direct it
But you can't direct it
Circulate, regulate, oh no,
You cannot connect it
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
Let go, let go
Discothèque
Let go, let's go, let's go
Discothèque

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

You wanna be the one
But you know you're someone else instead
You wanna be the song
Be the song that you're hearing
Let go, let's go
Discothèque
Go go, go go
Discothèque

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

Boom cha, boom cha
Boom cha, boom cha
Boom cha, boom cha
Boom cha, boom cha
Boom cha, boom cha
Boom cha, boom cha
Boom cha, boom cha
Boom cha, boom cha

Let go, let go
Discothèque
Go go, go go
Discotheque
Love, love, love
Discothèque, love
Discothèque, love
Love
