"A Man And A Woman"

"I always thought if we could get this one right, it would make you feel like you were in New York City sitting on the stoop, hearing it coming out of taxi cabs on a hot summer evening." - Bono, Blender 2004

Little sister
Don't you worry about a thing today
Take the heat from the sun
Little sister
I know that everything is not ok
But you're like honey on my tongue

True love never can rent
But only true love can keep beauty innocent

I could never take a chance
Of losing love to find romance
In the mysterious distance
'Cos I could never understand
The mysterious distance
Between a man and a woman

You can run from love
And if it's really love it will find you
And catch you by the heel
But you can't be numb to love
The only pain is to feel nothing at all
How can I hurt when I'm holding you

I could never take a chance
Of losing love to find romance
In the mysterious distance
Between a man and a woman
And you're the one, there's no one else
It makes me want to lose myself
In the mysterious distance
Between a man and a woman

Brown eyed girl across the street
On rue Saint Divine
I thought this is the one for me
But she was already mine
You were already mine

Little sister
I've been sleeping in the street again
Like a stray dog
Little sister
I've been trying to feel complete again
But you're gone and so is God

The soul needs beauty for a soul mate
When the soul wants, the soul waits

No, I could never take a chance
Of losing love to find romance
In the mysterious distance
Between a man and a woman
For love and sex and faith and fear
All the things that keep us here
In the mysterious distance
Between a man and a woman

You'll see, you'll see
How can I hurt when I'm holding you
