"Maybe it's just the latitude and longitude of the places we're playing, but there has been an extraordinary amount of undergarments onstage."

Hawkmoon 269 Lyrics

Found On:

"Hawkmoon 269"

"We actually physically wore the tape down doing that number (269) mixes. We were recording in Sunset Sound, with all the shit that happens around there going on. Search-and-destroy choppers looking for drug busts. Sunset Strip. Hookers. Every neon sign advertising sex in some shape or form. You could feel all of that coming through in 'Hawkmoon.'" - Bono, Hot Press

Like a desert needs rain
Like a town needs a name
I need your love

Like a drifter needs a room
Hawkmoon
I need your love
I need your love

Like a rhythm unbroken
Like drums in the night
Like sweet soul music
Like sunlight
I need your love
I need your love

Like coming home and you don't know where you've been
Like black coffee
Like nicotine
I need your love
I need your love
I need your love
I need your love
I need your love
I need your love

When the night has no end and the day yet to begin
As the room spins around I need your love
I need your love

Like a Phoenix rising needs a holy tree
Like the sweet revenge of a bitter enemy
I need your love
I need your love

Like the heat needs the sun
Like honey on her tongue
Like the muzzle of a gun
Like oxygen
I need your love
I need your love
I need your love
I need your love
I need your love
I need your love

When the night has no end and the day yet to begin
As the room spins around I need your love
I need your love
I need your love
I need your love
I need your love
I need your love
I need your love
I need your love
I need your love
I need your love

Like thunder needs rain
Like the preacher needs pain
Like tongues of flame
Like a sweet stain
Like a needle needs a vein
Like someone to blame
Like a thought unchained
Like a runaway train
I need your love
I need your love
I need your love
I need your love
I need your love
I need your love
I need your love
I need your love

Like faith needs a doubt
Heat of love in the heart of it
Like a freeway out
Heat of love in the heart of it
I need your love
Heat of love in the heart of it
Like powder needs a spark
Heat of love in the heart of it
Like lies need the dark
Heat of love in the heart of it
I need your love
Heat of love in the heart of it
Heat of love in the heart of it
Heat of love in the heart of it
Heat of love in the heart of it
Heat of love in the heart of it
Heat of love in the heart of it
Heat of love in the heart of it
Heat of love in the heart of it
Heat of love in the heart of it
Heat of love in the heart of it
Heat of love in the heart of it
Heat of love in the heart of it
Heat of love in the heart of it
Heat of love in the heart of it
Heat of love in the heart of it
Heat of love in the heart of it
Heat of love in the heart of it
Heat of love in the heart of it
Heat of love in the heart of it
Heat of love in the heart of it
Heat of love
