Love Rescue Me Lyrics

Found On:


Love: Live From The Point Depot (2004)


The Complete U2 (2004)

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.

"Love Rescue Me" (live from Point Depot)

"We played two nights in LA. I woke up one morning with a song in my head, 'Love Rescue Me.' Lots of songs arrive in a dream state. At first you think it must be somebody else's song, because it's there, verse, chorus, melody. I had been dreaming about Bob Dylan and I thought it w might be a Bob Dylan song. It's about a man people keep turning to as a saviour but his own life is getting messed up and he could use a bit of salvation himself." - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

Love rescue me
Come forth and speak to me
Raise me up and don't let me fall
No man is my enemy
My own hands imprison me
Love rescue me

Many strangers have I met
On the road to my regret
Many lost who seek to find themselves in me
Well, they ask me to reveal
The very thoughts they would conceal
Love rescue me

And the sun in the sky makes a shadow of you and I
Stretching out as the sun sinks in the sea
I'm hanging by my thumbs, I'm ready for whatever crumbs
Love rescue me

I've conquered my past
The future is here at last
I stand at the entrance
Of a new world I can see
The ruins to the right of me
Will soon lose sight of me
Love rescue me

Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow
Yet I will fear no evil
I have cursed they rod and staff
They no longer comfort me
Love rescue me
Rescue me

Sing sha-la la la, sha-la la la
Sha-la la la, shal-la la la
Sha-la la la, shal-la la la
Sha-la la la, shal-la la la
Sha-la la la, shal-la la la
Sha-la la la, shal-la la la
Sha-la la la, shal-la la la
Good night
Love rescue me

I said love, we're on the mountain side of love
Love, oh for love to feel
Yeah, I'm here without a name
In the palace with my shame
Love rescue me
Rescue me
Rescue me
Rescue me
Rescue me
Rescue me
Rescue me
Rescue me
Rescue me
Rescue me
Rescue me
Rescue me

I'm here without a name
In the palace of my shame
Love rescue me
