Handwritten Lyrics

"Where The Streets Have No Name" (live from Superbowl XXXVI)

"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

Oh Lord, open my lips
So I might show forth thy praise
Oh Lord, open my lips
So I might show forth thy praise
This
America

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
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 dance in the Louisiana rain
Where the streets have no name
Come now

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

The cities a flood, our love turns to rust
We're beaten and blown by the wind, trampled in dust
I'll show you a place where there's no sorrow or pain

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

Love, love, love
Love, love, love

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

Thank you, good night
