Electrical Storm Lyrics

Found On:

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.

"Electrical Storm" (demo mix)

"'Electrical Storm' was an attempt to capture a sense of unease I was feeling around the world, especially in America, an air of nervous anticipation. It's really about a couple in a room, feeling a storm brewing in the sky outside and equating that to the pressure they feel in their relationship. It's a post-9/11 song but it is not an overtly political song. I had the feeling that if U2 made another big statement about peace, war would break out just to shut us up. A hardened terrorist is not going to put down his weapon because U2 says war is bad." - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

The sea, it swells like a sore head
And the night, it is aching
Two lovers lie with no sheets on their bed
And the day, it is breaking
On rainy days we go swimming out
On rainy days swimming in the sound
On rainy days we go swimming out

You're in my mind all of the time
I know that's not enough
If the sky can crack
There must be some way back
For love and only love

Car alarm won't let you back to sleep
You're kept awake dreaming someone else's dream
Coffee's cold but it'll get you through
Compromise, that's nothing new to you
Let's see colours that have never been seen
Let's go to places no one else has been

You're in my mind all of the time
I know that's not enough
If the sky can crack there must be some way back
To love and only love
Electrical storm
Electrical storm
Electrical storm
Baby, don't cry

It's hot as hell, honey, in this room
Sure hope the weather will break soon
The air is heavy, heavy as a truck
Hope the rain will wash away our bad luck

If the sky can crack there must be some way back
For love and only love
Electrical storm
Electrical storm
Electrical storm

Baby, don't cry
Baby, don't cry
Baby, don't cry
Baby, don't cry

(This version of Electrical Storm was a special release from Bono to the BBC prior to the release of the single)
