"This is the stuff that in the end makes us what we are. It's the stuff that you can't leave behind, the personality of the band, the way we interact with each other."

Yahweh 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.

"Yahweh" (live from Chicago)

"I had the idea that no one can own Jerusalem, but everybody wants to put their flag on it. The title's an ancient name that's not meant to be spoken. I got around it by singing it. I hope I didn't offend anyone." - Bono, Q 2004

Take these shoes
Click clacking down some dead end street
Take these shoes and make them fit, yeah
Take this shirt
Polyester white trash made in nowhere
Take this shirt and make it clean, clean
Take this soul
Stranded in some skin and bones
Take this soul and make it sing, sing

Yahweh, Yahweh
Always pain before a child is born
Yahweh, Yahweh
Still I'm waiting for the dawn

Take this hurt
Teach them what to carry
Take these hands
Don't make a fist, no
Take this mouth
So quick to criticise
Take this mouth, give it a kiss
Yeah

Yahweh, Yahweh
Always pain before a child is born
Yahweh, Yahweh
Still I'm waiting for the dawn

Take this city
A city should be shining on the hill
Take this city if it be your will
What no man can own, no man can take
Take this heart
Take this heart
Take this heart
And let it break
