"Ultraviolet (Light My Way)"

"'Ultraviolet (Light My Way) was a little disturbed. 'There's a silence that comes to a house when no one can sleep' is a great line, and I can say that with all modesty because I stole that line from Raymond Carver. My apologies. It is an epic U2 song but again the key of it left my voice in a conversational place and allowed a different kind of lyric writing... But it disguises very dark content: 'Your love is a secret that's been passed around.' Jealousy. Infidelity. Love rears its ugly head again.' - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

Sometimes I feel like I don't know
Sometimes I feel like checking out
I wanna get it wrong
Can't always be strong
And love it won't be long

Oh sugar, don't you cry
Oh child, wipe the tears from your eyes
You know I need you to be strong
And the day is as dark as the night is long
Feel like trash, you make me feel clean
I'm in the black, can't see or be seen

Baby baby baby light my way
All right now
Baby baby baby light my way

You bury your treasure where it can't be found
But your love is like a secret that's been passed around
There is a silence that comes to a house where no one can sleep
I guess it's the price of love
I know it's not cheap

Oh come on
Baby baby baby light my way
Oh come on
Baby baby baby light my way

Ultraviolet love
Ultraviolet love
Ultraviolet love
Ultraviolet love

Baby baby baby light my way

I remember when we could sleep on stones
Now we lie together in whispers and moans
When I was all messed up and I heard opera in my head
Your love was a lightbulb hanging over my bed

Baby baby baby light my way
Oh come on
Baby baby baby light my way

Ultraviolet love
Ultraviolet love
Ultraviolet love
Ultraviolet love

Baby baby baby
Baby baby baby
Baby baby baby light my way, yeah
Baby baby baby
Baby baby baby
Baby baby baby light my way
Baby baby baby
Baby baby baby light my way
Baby baby bab
