"As regards Zoo TV, it's so logical for U2 to do this -- I don't think they understand exactly what they are doing and I like that. It takes guts."

"Mysterious Ways" (Solar Plexus Magic Hour mix)

"It is U2 at our funkiest. Sexy music. Sly and The Family Stone meets Manchester baggy. We came up with a few different verses but Edge really liked the nursery rhyme feel we ended up with... It's a song about a man living on little or no romance. We were going to call the album Fear Of Women at one point. Edge came up with the 'It's all right, it's all right' coda. He wanted to prove a point. He said, 'We've never had a song that says it's alright.' So I said, 'All right.' - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

Johnny, take a walk with your sister the moon
Let her pale light in to fill up your room
You've been living underground, eating from a can
You've been running away from what you don't understand, love

She's slippy, you're sliding down
She'll be there when you hit the ground

She moves in mysterious ways

Johnny, take a dive with your sister in the rain
Let her talk about the things you can't explain
To touch is to heal, to hurt is to steal
If you want to kiss the sky, better learn how to kneel
On your knees, boy

She wants you, you don't know why
She sees the man inside the child

It's alright, it's alright, alright
It's alright, it's alright, it's alright
She moves in mysterious ways
Love
Lift my days, light up my nights, love

One day you'll look back, and you'll see
Where you were held
How by this love while you could stand there
You could move on this moment
Follow this feeling

She moves in mysterious ways
It's alright, it's alright, it's alright
She moves in mysterious ways
Love, love
Spirit moves with it
She moves with it
Lift my days, light up my nights, love
