"Last Night On Earth" (live from Mexico City)

"The chorus came to me at the very end of the sessions on Pop, which were getting a little turgid and tiring. It was four o'clock in the morning of the last night in the studio. We had people mixing who hadn't been in bed for a week. Paul was waiting to take the tapes to New York to master the record. I started singing the line: ' You've got to give it away.' Don't turn it into work was the message. Which was exactly what we were doing. We were supposed to be making an uplifting expression of what happens when rock 'n' roll meets club culture. Instead, it felt like a load of men on an oil rig in the middle of the North Sea." - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

Hola, hola Mexico
Como estan
Bien

How did we get here, how'd you get here
I went looking, there's so much to see
I went looking
I went looking for spirit, found alcohol
I went looking for soul, I bought some style
I wanted to meet God but you sold me religion

She feels the ground is giving way
But she thinks we're better off that way
The more you take the less you feel
The more you know the less you believe
The more you have, the more it takes today

You got to give it away
You got to give it away
You got to give it away
You got to give it away
You got to give it away
You got to give it away
She knows just what she's worth
Still she's living like it's the last night on earth
Last night on earth

She's not waiting on a savior to come
She's at the bus stop with the News Of The World
And the Sun, sun, here it comes
She's not waiting for anyone

You got to give it away
You got to give it away
You got to give it away
You got to give it away
You got to give it away
You got to give it away
She knows just what she's worth
She's spinning like it's the last night on earth
The last night on earth

Oh child, oh child
It's not the last night on earth
It's Poplife Mexico
It's not the last night on earth
Slipping away, slip slide
Darling, don't you let me go
Mexico Mexico Mexico City
How did you get so hight
It's not the last night on earth
Darling, stay with me tonight
'Cause the world turns and we get dizzy
Is it spinning for you the way it's spinning for me
Sometimes we're slipping away

We're living, living next week now
You know we're going to pay it back somehow
We haven't been to bed in a week
We'll be dead soon, we still won't sleep

You got to give it away
You got to give it away
You got to give it away
You got to give it away
You got to give it away
You got to give it away
C'mon, she knows that it hurts
Living like it's the last night on earth
The last night on earth
The last night on earth
