Sunday Bloody Sunday Lyrics

Found On:


The Joshua Tree Live From Paris (2007)

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.

"Sunday Bloody Sunday" (live from Paris 1)

"We were trying to be the Who meets the Clash. I spent minutes on these things rather than hours. So 'Sunday Bloody Sunday,' which was supposed to contrast Easter Sunday with the death of thirteen protesters in Derry on Bloody Sunday, didn't quite come off. And yet melodically and the suggestion of the lyrics stood up to the test of time. I've changed the lyrics when I sing it now just to make it more believable for myself. I don't think anyone else notices. But that's a great song - mostly Edge's song." - Bono, Rolling Stone 2005

You get it, pick it up

I can't believe the news today
I can't close my eyes and make it go away

How long, how long must we sing this song
How long, how long
Tonight we can be as one, tonight
Broken bottles under children's feet
And bodies strewn across a dead end street
But I won't heed the battle call
It puts my back up
My back up against the wall

Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday

And the battle's yet begun
There's many lost, but tell me who has won
The trenches dug within our hearts
And mothers, children, brothers, sisters torn apart

Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday

How long, how long must we sing this song
How long, how long
'Cause tonight we can be as one
Tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight
Tonight

You got it by now. Sing this for Amnesty International. You heard of Amnesty International. Well, they've sure heard of you.

Sing for me.
No more, no more, say no more, no more
No more, no more, no more, no more
No more, no more, no more

Wipe your tears away
Wipe your tears away
Wipe your bloodshot eyes
Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday

We're so sick of it

And it's true we are immune
When fact is fiction and T.V. reality
And today the millions cry
We eat and drink while tomorrow they die
Sunday bloody Sunday
The real battle yet begun
Sunday bloody Sunday
Will claim the victory Jesus won, yeah

Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
