"[I]n the early '80s . . . there was this rather ridiculous idea . . . that if it was big, it was bad. Which of course rules out Elvis."

Walk On Lyrics

Found On:

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.

"Walk On" (A Tribute to Heroes version)

"If you've ever had a fright in your life, someone close to you dies, or whatever, things come into sharp focus and you just...suddenly some people become more important to you than others. Some ideas become more important to you than others. I think the Dalai Lama says, 'Begin with death, start from there, and you won't go far wrong.' I don't think he was just having a bad day. Christ says, I think, in the sermon on the mount, 'If you love your life too much, you've already lost it.' Which is an interesting one. As a younger man I remember I didn't understand what he meant, because I loved life. You're holding on so tight to it that you're incapable of doing anything with it. It's about fear." - Bono, Rolling Stone 2001

Hello from London

And if the darkness is to keep us apart
And if the daylight feels like it's a long way off
And if your glass heart should crack
And for one second you turn back
Oh no, be strong

Walk on, walk on
What you've got they can't steal it
No, they can't even feel it
Walk on, walk on
Stay safe tonight

You're packing a suitcase for a place
That none of us has been
A place that has to be believed to be seen
You could have flown away
A singing bird in an open cage
Who will only fly, only fly for freedom

Walk on, walk on
What you've got they can't deny it
Can't sell it or buy it
Walk on, walk on
Stay safe tonight

Yeah, I know it aches, how your heart it breaks
You can only take so much
Walk on

You gotta leave it behind
You gotta leave it behind,
We've got to leave it behind
All that you fashion
All that you make
All that you build
All that you break
All that you measure
All that you deal
All you count on two fingers
And all that you steal
You gotta leave it behind

Halle halle
Halle hallelujah
You gotta leave it behind
Halle halle
Halle hallelujah
Halle halle
Halle hallelujah
Halle halle
Halle hallelujah
We're going home sister
Halle halle
Halle hallelujah
Halle halle
See you when I get home
Halle hallelujah
See you when I get home, sister
Halle halle
Halle hallelujah
Halle halle

(This version features U2 with Dave Stewart and Natalie Imbruglia and can be found on the album A Tribute To Heroes"
