"Mysterious Ways" (Massive Attack mix)

"It is U2 at our funkiest. Sexy music. Sly and The Family Stone meets Manchester baggy. We came up with a few different verses but Edge really liked the nursery rhyme feel we ended up with... It's a song about a man living on little or no romance. We were going to call the album Fear Of Women at one point. Edge came up with the 'It's all right, it's all right' coda. He wanted to prove a point. He said, 'We've never had a song that says it's alright.' So I said, 'All right.' - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

Johnny, take a walk with your sister the moon
Let her pale light in to fill up your room
You've been living underground, eating from a can
You've been running away from what you don't understand

She's slippy, you're sliding down
She'll be there when you hit the ground

It's alright, it's alright, it's alright
She moves in mysterious ways
It's alright, it's alright, it's alright
She moves in mysterious ways

Johnny, take a dive with your sister in the rain
Let her talk about the things you can't explain
To touch is to heal, to hurt is to steal
If you want to kiss the sky, better learn how to kneel
On your knees, boy

She wants you, you don't know why
She sees the man inside the child

It's alright, it's alright, it's alright
She moves in mysterious ways
It's alright, it's alright, it's alright
She moves in mysterious ways
It's alright, it's alright, it's alright
Lift my days and light up my nights, love

One day you'll look back, and you'll see
Where you were held
How by this love while you could stand there
You could move on this moment
Follow this feeling

It's alright, it's alright, it's alright
She moves in mysterious ways
It's alright, it's alright, it's alright
She moves in mysterious ways
Love, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright
Move you, spirit, move, making love
Yeah, move, yeah, move, make love
You move with it, she moves with it
Lift my days, light up my nights, love
Spirit move
