"Trip Through Your Wires"

"'Trip Through Your Wires' has that lovely loose, sloppy, throwaway side of the band that we cans sometimes capture. Bono's harmonica playing is very expressive, with a nasty, aggressive sound. That harmonica first made an appearance when we were trying to cover Neil Young's 'Heart Of Gold' back in our schooldays." - Adam, U2 By U2 2006

In the distance she saw me coming 'round
I was calling out, I was calling out

Still shaking, still in pain
You put me back together again
I was cold, you clothed me, honey
I was down, you lifted me, honey

Angel, angel or devil
I was thirsty and you wet my lips
You, I'm waiting for you
You, you set my desire
I trip through your wires

I was broken, bent out of shape
I was naked in the clothes you made
My lips were dry, throat like rust
You gave me shelter from the heat and the dust
No more water in the well
No more water, water

Angel, angel or devil
I was thirsty and you wet my lips
You, I'm waiting for you
You, you set my desire
I trip through your wires

All I need, all I need
All I need, all I need
All I need, all I need
All I need yeah yeah

Thunder, thunder on the mountain
There's a rain cloud in the desert sky
In the distance she saw me coming 'round
I was calling out, I was calling out
