I Threw A Brick Through A Window Lyrics

Found On:


October (1981)

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.

"I Threw A Brick Through A Window" (live from the BBC)

"'I Threw A Brick Through A Window' is a song about not liking yourself. It's seeing your reflection in the mirror and wanting to smash it. I don't know where that's coming from. I try not to major on self-loathing but it does creep in every so often. Guilt to me is a very useless emotion. You make a mistake, you try and rectify it, you apologize, and you get on." - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

I was talking, I was talking to myself
Somebody else talk, talk, talking
I couldn't hear a word, a word he said
He was my brother, brother
I said there was no other way out of here
Be my brother, brother
I got to get out, got to get out

I was walking
I was walking into walls and back again
I just keep walking
I walk up to a window to see myself and my reflection
And when I thought about it
My direction going nowhere, going nowhere
Anywhere's better than this

No one
No, no one is blinder than he who will not see

I was talking
I was talking in my sleep
Oh, I can't stop talk, talk, talking
I'm talking to you, it's up to you
Be my brother, brother
There is another way out of here
Be my brother, brother
I got to get out
Got to get out
I want out

Thank you
