"In A Little While"

"'In A LIttle While' Is clearly addressed to the Mrs. They used to call me a baby-snatcher in the mall at school for dating a girl from the year below. They say a year is a lot in showbusiness. In high school, it's a lifetime. It is sung in a voice that was up all night... I may have misjudged my allocation of units the night before. I had this idea of writing about the temporal nature of being, but setting it in a hangover gives it some comedy and earthiness that balances the philosophical pretensions. It is really an apology." - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

In a little while surely you'll be mine
In a little while I'll be there
In a little while this hurt will hurt no more
I'll be home, love
When the night takes a deep breath and the daylight has no air
If I crawl, if I come crawling home will you be there

In a little while I won't be blown by every breeze
Friday night running to Sunday on my knees
That girl, that girl, she's mine
Well I've known her since
Since she was a little girl with Spanish eyes
When I saw her in a pram they pushed her by
My how you've grown
Well, it's been, it's been a little while

Slow down my beating heart

A man dreams one day to fly
A man takes a rocketship into the skies
He lives on a star that's dying in the night
And follows in the trail, the scatter of light
Turn it on, turn it on, you turn me on

Slow down my beating heart
Slowly, slowly love
Slow down my beating heart
Slowly, slowly love
Slow down my beating heart
Slowly, slowly love
