Sunday Bloody Sunday Lyrics

Found On:


The Unforgettable Fire (2009)

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 London)

"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

Go

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
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

Alright now
Give it up

And this battle's just begun
There's many lost, but tell me who has won
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
Tonight we can be as one
Tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight

Sing it
England, welcome the Edge

Sunday bloody Sunday
Tonight tonight
Sunday bloody Sunday
Tonight tonight

You know the words
You know the words
Sing, no more
Sing no more
No more, no more
No more, no more
No more

Wipe your tears away
Wipe your tears away
Wipe your blood shot eyes
Sunday bloody Sunday
Wipe your tears away
Sunday bloody Sunday

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

We're so sick of it
Pick it up

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

On Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday

Thank you

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