Vertigo Lyrics

Found On:


Vertigo (2004)


Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own (2005)

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.

"Vertigo" (Redanka Power mix)

"In the case of 'Vertigo,' I was thinking about this awful nightclub we've all been to. You're supposed to be having a great time and everything's extraordinary around you and the drinks are the price of buying a bar in a Third World country. You're there and you're doing it and you're having it and you sort of don't want to be there. And it felt like the way a lot of people were feeling at that moment, as you turn on the telly or you're just looking around and you see big, fat Capitalism at the top of its mountain, just about to topple. It's that woozy, sick feeling of realizing that here we are, drinking, eating, polluting, robbing ourselves to death. And in the middle of the club, there's this girl. She has crimson nails. I don't even know if she's beautiful, it doesn't matter but she has a cross around her neck, and the character in this stares at the cross just to steady himself." - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

Unos, dos, tres, catorce

Lights go down
Go down, go down, go down
Go down, go down, go down
Lights go down
Go down, go down, go down
Go down, go down, go down
Lights go down
Go down, go down, go down
Go down, go down, go down
Lights go down
Go down, go down, go down
Go down, go down, go down
Lights go down
Go down, go down, go down
Go down, go down, go down
Lights go down
Go down, go down

Hola
I'm at a place called Vertigo
Donde esta

Lights go down
It's dark, the jungle is
Your head can't rule your heart
A feeling's so much stronger than a thought
Your eyes are wide
And though your soul, it can't be bought
Your mind can wander


The night is full of holes
As bullets rip the sky of ink with gold
They twinkle as the boys play rock'n'roll
They know that they can't dance
At least they know
I can't stand the beats
I'm asking for the check
The girl with crimson nails
Has Jesus 'round her neck
Swinging to the music
Swinging to the music

Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah

I'm at a place called Vertigo
Donde esta
It's everything I wish I didn't know
Except you give me something
Hola

Hello, hello
Hola
I'm at a place called Vertigo
Donde esta
It's everything I wish I didn't know
Except you give me something
Hola

Hello, hello
Hola
I'm at a place called Vertigo
Donde esta
It's everything I wish I didn't know
Except you give me something
I can feel
Feel, feel, feel
Feel, feel, feel, feel

Unos, dos, tres, catorce

Hola
I'm at a place called Vertigo
Donde esta

Hola
I'm at a place called Vertigo
Donde esta

Hola
I'm at a place called Vertigo
Donde esta

Hola
I'm at a place called Vertigo

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
