11 O'Clock Tick Tock Lyrics

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.

"11 O'Clock Tick Tock" (live from Boston 2)

"The trend of the day was recording studios without any room reverb or ambience. The playing room at Windmill Lane was designed to be totally dead, and you can hear it on the drums. It wasn't until the 'Boy' sessions that we figured out that we had to pull the durm kit into the entrance hall, after the receptionist had gone hoe, to get a decent drum sound. With its three storey stairwell and stone and tiled surfaces, it was a great live room. Many bands came to Windmill Lane looking for that big U2 drum sound only to stracth their heads when they heard a drum sound more like Steely Dan coming back off tape." - The Edge, Boy 2008


It’s cold outside
It gets so hot in here
But the boys and girls collide
To the music in my ear

I hear the children crying
And I know it’s time to go
I hear the children crying
Take me home

Oh, painted face
And I know that we haven’t long
We thought that we have the answers
It was the questions we had wrong

I hear the children crying
And I know it’s time to go
I hear the children crying
Take me home

Sad song, sad song, sad song, sad song


Sad, sad
We sing to someone and the somebodies
Push out
Wake up

In the love, in soul
Reach in
