American Prayer 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.

"American Prayer" (live from Capetown)

And this is the time
To finish what we started
And this is no time to dream
This is the road
You can turn off the dark tonight
Maybe then we might see

I want to know healing
An American prayer
I want to know the meaning
Of American prayer
I want to believe in
American prayer
But I can hear children screaming
American prayer

This is the ground
That keeps our feet from getting wet
And this is the sky over our head
Remember that what you see
Depends on where you stand
And how you jump will tell you
Where you're going to land

I want to know healing
An American prayer
I want to know the meaning
Of American prayer
I want to believe in
American prayer
But I can hear children screaming
American prayer

Hold on, hold on
Let's not get tired
So kick at the darkness
Make the lights brighter

An African prayer
This is our African prayer

I want to know healing
An African prayer
I want to know the meaning
Of African prayer
I want to believe in
African prayer
But I can hear children screaming
African prayer

(This song, written by Bono and Dave Stewart, was performed by Bono, the Edge, Dave Stewart, and Beyonce Knowles at the 46664 concert for Nelson Mandela)
