Handwritten Lyrics

"Where The Streets Have No Name" (live from Mexico City)

"We can be in the middle of the worst gig in our lives, but when we go into that song, everything changes. The audience is on its feet, singing along with every word. It's like God suddenly walks through the room. It's the point where craft ends and spirit begins. How else do you explain it?" - Bono, Los Angeles Times 2004

Give it up

I want to run, yeah I want to hide
Yeah, I want to tear down the walls that hold me tonight
I want to break through into a new frame
Where the streets have no name
I want to feel the sunlight on my face
Yeah, I see the dust cloud disappear without a trace
I want to take shelter from the dirty rain

Where the streets have no shame
Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
Still we're building, then burning down love
We're burning down love
And when I go there I go there with you
It's all I can do, c'mon

The cities a flood and our love turns to rust
We're beaten and blown by the wind, trampled in dust
I'll show you a place, it's high, it's high

Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
Still we're building, then burning down love
We're burning down love
And when I go there, I go there with you
It's all I can do, child

Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
Still we're building, then burning down love
We're burning down love
When I go there, I go there with you
It's all we can do

Arriba, Mexico, Mexicola
Mexico, Mexicola
Mexico, Mexicola
Mexico, Mexicola
Mexico, Mexicola
Mexico, Mexicola
Mexico City, Mexico City
Mexico let go let go let go
Let go let go let go let go
Let go, go
