Handwritten Lyrics

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

"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

It's Paul, it's Paul
Sing this song for him
I sing this song for him, for him

I want to run, I want to hide
I want to tear down the walls that hold me tonight
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 that rain cloud disappearing without a trace
But I can dance, dance, dance in the dirty rain

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
We're burning down love
And when I go there, I go there with you
It's all I can do

Give it up

The cities a flood and our love turns to rust
We're beaten and blown by the wind
We're trampled in dust
I'll show you a place with 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
We're burning down love
And when I go there, I go there with you
It's all I can do

Oh love
Love, love, love

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