"We grow up with this rather juvenile idea that people who are not like us don't get it -- the suits don't get it -- but it doesn't make sense anymore. Sometimes the enemy is your own indifference."

An Cat Dubh Lyrics

Found On:


Vertigo Live From Chicago (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.

"An Cat Dubh" (live from Chicago 1)

"The sequence that blows my mind is 'An Cat Dubh,' the black cat, to 'Into The Heart.' It's astonishing. Just the violences of Edge's guitar playing, this image of temptation, a cat sleeping beside a dead bird in suburban Dublin, and playing with it, the way they do, cat stalks the bird, kills it, and then shakes it about. And somehow knowing the sexual side of that, desire and innocence, and the way it can play with you. And the beautiful lyrical guitar, Edge breaking the rules of punk rock and playing a kind of guitar theme, a solo almost, that went on for an age. That's amazing." - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

Say good night
She waits for me to put out the light
When I am still
She waits to break my will
Yes, and I know the truth about you
She cat

And in the daylight
A black bird makes a violent sight
And when she is done
She sleeps beside the one
Yes, and I know the truth about you
She cat

Yes, and I know the truth about you
She cat
