Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses Lyrics

Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses (1992)


The Complete U2 (2004)

"Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses" (Temple Bar edit)

"They hated that song. I spent a month on it and I still don't think it was as realised as it could've been. The Americans had heard it and said, 'That's your radio song there,' because they were having trouble with some of the more industrial elements. It's almost like a covers band doing a U2 moment. Maybe we tried too hard." - Steve Lillywhite, Q 2002

You're dangerous 'cos you're honest
You're dangerous, you don't know what you want
Well, you left my heart empty as a vacant lot
For any spirit to haunt
Hey hey, sha la la, hey hey

You're an accident waiting to happen
You're a piece of glass left there on the beach
Well you tell me things I know you're not supposed to
Then you leave me just out of reach
Hey hey, sha la la
Hey hey, sha la la

Who's gonna ride your wild horses
Who's gonna drown in your blue sea
Who's gonna ride your wild horses
Who's gonna fall at the foot of thee

Well you stole it 'cos I needed the cash
And you killed it 'cos I wanted revenge
Well you lied to me 'cos I asked you to
Baby, can we still be friends
Hey hey, sha la la
Hey hey, sha la la

Who's gonna ride your wild horses
Who's gonna drown in your blue sea
Who's gonna ride your wild horses
Who's gonna fall at the foot of thee
Come on now love
Don't you look back
Who's gonna ride your wild horses
Who's gonna drown in your blue sea
Who's gonna taste your salt water kisses
Wh's gonna take the place of me

Don't turn around
Don't turn around again
Don't turn around
Your gypsy heart
Don't turn around
Don't turn around again
Don't turn around
And don't look back
