October Lyrics

Found On:


Under A Blood Red Sky (1983)

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.

"October" (live from Red Rocks)

"It was a colder time, materialism without any idealism, the sun without any heat, winter. It was after the fall, after harvest. I had the line, 'October, the trees slips bare of all they wear.' The song is a really gentle, meditative piece of work. Edge at the piano coming up with these beautiful ice notes, and this picture of loss of innocence, the fall, the leaves falling from the trees, and you're left exposed." - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

October
The trees are stripped bare
From all they wear
What do I care

October
Kingdoms rise and kingdoms fall
But You go on
And on and on
You go on
You go on
