Numb Lyrics

Found On:


Numb (1993)

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.

"Numb" (Perfecto mix)

"'Numb' was a left-over from 'Achtung Baby' called 'Down All The Days.' The song didn't really work but the instrumental backing was interesting. Brian added some fantastic keyboards. Then when we were trying to get a final running order together for 'Zooropa,' we had this backing track but we didn't know what to do with it. Edge took off into another studio to demo a few ideas, and, within a few hours, had worked out this way of almost rapping over it. I think it is a sonic masterpiece and Edge's delivery is fantastic." - Adam Clayton, U2 By U2 2006

Don't move
Don't talk out of time
Don't think
Don't worry
Everything's just fine
Just fine
Don't grab
Don't clutch
Don't hope for too much
Don't breathe
Don't achieve
Or grieve without leave
Don't check
Just balance on the fence
Don't answer
Don't ask
Don't try and make sense
Don't whisper
Don't talk
Don't run if you can walk
Don't cheat, compete
Don't miss the one beat
Don't travel by train
Don't eat
Don't spill
Don't piss in the drain
Don't make a will
Had a good time
Had a good time
Don't fill out any forms
Don't compensate
Don't cower
Don't crawl
Don't come around late
Don't hover at the gate
Don't take it on board
Don't fall on your sword
Just play another chord
If you feel you're getting bored
Don't be unhappy
Don't be unkind
It's not that hard
Just try and unwind
Had a good time

Don't change your brand
Don't listen to the band
Don't gape
Don't ape
Don't change your shape
Have another grape

In cold blood
In cold blood

Don't plead
Don't bridle
Don't shackle
Don't grind
Don't curve
Don't swerve
Lie, die, serve
Don't theorize, realise, polarise
Chance, dance,dismiss, apologise

Don't spy
Don't lie
Don't try
Imply
Detain
Explain
Start again
Don't triumph
Don't coax
Don't cling
Don't hoax
Don't freak
Peak
Don't leak
Don't speak

Don't project
Don't connect
Protect
Don't expect
Suggest
Don't project

Had a good time
I had a good time

Don't follow
Don't suffer
Don't touch
Don't dine
Don't breathe
Don't shave
Don't shower
Behave
Don't protest
Don't best
Don't bless
Don't rest
Don't act
Detract
Don't smoke
Don't choke
Don't open
Don't seize
Don't stop
Don't start
Don't count
Don't freeze

I had, I had

Don't struggle
Don't jerk
Don't collar
Don't work
Don't wish
Don't fish
Don't teach
Don't reach
I had a good time
Don't borrow
Don't break
Don't fence
Don't steal
Don't pass
Don't press
Don't try
Don't feel
Don't crush
Don't bond
Don't lose
Don't choose
Don't sense
Don't spend
On the working man
Don't defend
Don't touch
Don't dive
Don't suffer
Don't rhyme
Don't fantasize
Don't rise
Don't lie

Don't project
Don't connect
Protect
Don't expect
