Beautiful Day 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.

"Beautiful Day" (live from Hyde Park)

"'Beautiful Day' has a directness reminiscent of early U2 but with Edge bringing a dizziness and futuristic quality so that it doesn't feel retro. The guitar chords were nothing special but they were my attempt to get the album airborne, the way a rock band like the Buzzcocks would. The lyric expresses amazement, really, that whatever situation you find yourself in, as uncomfortable and upsetting as they can be, if you're alive and you are awake, then you have perspective on it... Pain is evidence of life because it reminds you there are things in your life that aren't right. So you should be thankful for it really and celebrate that there is so much to live for." - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

Did that really happen

The heart is a bloom
It shoots up through the stony ground
But there's no room
No space to rent in this town
You're out of luck
And the reason that you had to care
The traffic is stuck
You're not moving anywhere
You thought you'd found a friend
To take you out of this place
Always
Someone you could lend a hand
In return for grace
Always

It's a beautiful day
Day
The sky falls and you feel like
Day
It's a beautiful day
Day, day

You're on the road
But you've got no destination
You're in the mud
In the maze of her imagination
You love this town
Even if that doesn't ring true
You've been all over
And it's been all over you
Always

It's a beautiful day
Day
Don't let it get away
Day
Beautiful day
Day, day
You can touch me
Take me to that other place
Teach me
I know I'm not a hopeless case, no

See the world in green and blue
Hyde Park, London stretched out in front of you
Berlin, Rome, Paris, France
Philadelphia, this is not romance
Moscow, Toronto, Tokyo
Africa, we're coming home
See the bird with a leaf in her mouth
After the flood all the colors came out

Day, day

It was a beautiful day
Day
Don't let it get away
Day
Beautiful day
Day, day

You can touch me
Take me to that other place
Teach me
I know I'm not a hopeless case

What you don't have you don't need it now
What you don't know you can feel somehow
What you don't have you don't need it now
Don't need it now
Beautiful day
Day
Beautiful
Day
Day
The cloud, watch them, watch them
Day
Birds rise up
Day
Paul McCartney, what a gift to the world
Day
Beautiful day
Day

Black bird singing in the dead of night
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
All your life
You have just been waiting for this moment to arise
Black bird fly
