Joshua Tree Tour 2017

"We genuinely believed it was a record about being fans of rock-and-roll. Maybe we didn't understand how successful we were and that it looked like we were hanging out with these guys so, by association, that we were one of the greats."

-- Bono, on Rattle and Hum

Discothèque Lyrics

Found On:


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" (Mike Hedges 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 want heaven in your heart
You want heaven in your heart
You want heaven in your heart
You want heaven in your heart

You can reach but you can't grab it
You can't hold it, control it
You can't bag it
You can push but you cannot 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 lovey-dovey 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 wanna be the song
Be the song that you hear in your head

Its not a trick 'cause you can't learn it
It's the way you don't pay that's ok
'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 lovey-dovey stuff
Let go, let go
Discothèque
Go go, go go
Discothèque
Looking for the one
But you know you're somewhere else instead
You wanna be the song
Be the song that you hear in your head

Love in your heart
It's emotion that they want
And some have it all
But you take what you can get
'Cause it's all that you can find
But you know that there's something more
But tonight, but tonight, tonight you don't mind
