Handwritten Lyrics

"Where The Streets Have No Name" (live from Tempe)

"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

I want to run, I want to hide
I want to tear down the walls that hold me inside
I want to reach out and touch the flame, yeah
Where the streets have no name
I want to feel sunlight on my face
I see the dust cloud disappear without a trace
I want to take shelter from the poison rain, yeah

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

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 high on a desert plain

Where the streets have no name
Oh yeah
Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
We're still building, then burning down love
Burning down love
And when I go there, I go there with you
It's all I can do
I can do it

Alright
Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
We're still building, then burning down love
Burning down love
And when I go there, I go there with you
It's all we can do
Oh darling
Oh my darling
I want to go there with you, yeah
Yeah
