"Our music is primarily uplifting, but at the same time there's a realism to our music as opposed to an escapism."

Discothèque Lyrics

Found On:


Discothèque (1997)


The Complete U2 (2004)

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.

"Discothèque" (David Holmes mix)

B-"I think it's an earnest little riddle about love. I guess, by implication, it's about the counterfeit of what you can't find. People take second best because it's hard to get the real shit." E-"Hahahaha! It's about drugs as well." B-"Yeah, that's one of them, but it's not just drugs. There's a lot of counterfeits out there." - Bono & The Edge, NME 1997

You can reach but you can't grab it
You can't hold it, control it
You can't bag it
You can push but you can't direct it
Circulate, regulate, oh no
You cannot connect it

You know you're chewing bubble gum
You know what that is but you still want some
You just can't get enough of that lovie dovie stuff

You get confused but you know it
Yeah, you hurt for it, work for it, love
You don't always show it
Oh yeah

Go go
Discothèque
Let go, let go
Discothèque

It's not a trick
It's not a trick 'cause you can't learn it
It's the way you don't pay that's okay

You know you're chewing bubble gum
You know what that is but you still want some
You just can't get enough of that lovie dovie stuff
Go go
Discothèque
Let go, let go
Discothèque
Go go
Discothèque
Let go, let go
Discothèque
Go go
Discothèque
Let go, let go
Discothèque
Go go
Discothèque
Let go, let go
Discothèque
Go go
Discothèque
Let go, let go
Discothèque
