"Bono, the Mother Teresa of abandoned songs, compassionately continues arguing the case for every single idea that has ever experienced even the most transitory existence."

Handwritten Lyrics

"Auld Lang Syne/Where The Streets Have No Name" (live from Dublin)

"We can be in the middle of the worst gig in our lives, but when we go into that song, everything changes. The audience is on its feet, singing along with every word. It's like God suddenly walks through the room. It's the point where craft ends and spirit begins. How else do you explain it?" - Bono, Los Angeles Times 2004

It's here, help me count
15, 14, 13, 12, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1
Happy new year
Happy new decade
Happy new year, it's U2

For auld lang syne
We'll drink of cup of kindness yet
For the sake of auld lang syne

Here she comes, the future
Happy Christmas and Happy New Year to you all
It's 1990
Forget about the past
We gotta celebrate the future
Where the streets have no name
Oh yeah

I want to run, I want to hide
I want to tear down the walls that hold me inside
I want to reach out and touch the flame
Where the streets have no name

I want to feel the sunlight on my face
I see the dust cloud disappear without a trace
I want to take shelter from the poison rain
Where the streets have no name

Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
Still we're building, then burning down love
Burning down love
And when I go there I go there with you
It's all I can do
I can do it

The cities a flood and our love turns to rust
We're beaten and blown by the wind, trampled in dust
I'll show you a place high on a desert plain
Where the streets have no name

Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
We're still building, then burning down love
Burning down love
And when I go there I go there with you
It's all I can do
I can do it
I can do anything

Come with me, y'all
Just right tonight

Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
We're still building, then burning down love
Burning down love
And when I go there I go there with you
It's all I can do
It's all I know how to do

I wanna go there with you
