"It's almost Communism in a way. Not that there's this sort of artificial 'everything must be equal thing,' it's just the respect for everybody, and that really counts, I think."

Original Of The Species Lyrics

Found On:


Vertigo Live From Milan (2006)

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.

"Original Of The Species" (live from Milan)

"The last time I cried was listening to that song. It was a song Bono started on the last record about my daughter Holly. He's her godfather. The lyric became even more universal. About being young and full of doubt about yourself. He probably won't agree, but I think it has connotations for Bono, looking back to when he was 20." - The Edge, Q 2004

Right, Original of the Species

Baby, slow down
The end is not as fun as the start
Please stay a child somewhere in your heart

I'll give you everything you want
Except the thing you want
You are the first one of your kind

And you feel like no one before
You steal right under my door
I kneel 'cause I want you some more
I want the lot of what you got
And I want nothing you're not

Everywhere you go you shout it
You don't have to be shy about it

Some things you shouldn't get too good at
Like smiling, crying and celebrity
Some people got way too much confidence, baby, baby

I'll give you everything you want
Except the thing that you want
You are the first ones of your kind

You feel like no one before
You steal right under my door
I kneel 'cause I want you some more
I want the lot of what you got
And I want nothing you're not

Everywhere you go you shout it
You don't have to be shy about it, no
Oh no, and you'll never be afraid

Sugar c'mon, show your soul
You've been keeping your love under control

Everywhere you go you shout it
You don't have to be shy about it
Everywhere you go you I'm behind you
Oh, my love

You feel like no one before
You steal right under my door
I kneel 'cause I want you some more
I want you some more
I want you some more

Oh no, oh no
Oh no, oh no
