Handwritten Lyrics

"Get On Your Boots" (Justice remix)

"This song is set at a fairground outside Nice in France, where Ali and I take our kids. It is a song from a man to his first love. She doesn't realise how beautiful she is. It's simple and playful, but in the peripheral vision of it you get the sense that there is a danger, a ghost train ride, a hall of mirrors. We ware around the corner from the house of horrors in this happy place. During the summer at night we could hear the low rumbles of fighters and bombers on their way to war in the Gulf." - Bono, No Line On The Horizon 2009

The future needs a big kiss
Winds blow with a twist
Never seen a moon like this
Can you see it too

Night is falling everywhere
Rockets at the fun fair
Satan loves a bomb scare
But he won't scare you

Hey, sexy boots
Get on your boots, yeah
Hey, sexy boots
Get on your boots, yeah

You free me from the dark dream
Candy floss, ice cream
All our kids are screaming
But the ghosts aren't real

Here's where we gotta be
Love and community
Laughter is eternity
If joy is real

Hey, sexy boots, sexy boots
Get on your boots, yeah
Hey, sexy boots, sexy boots
Get on your boots, yeah

That's someone's stuff they're blowing up
We're into growing up
Women of the future
Hold the big revelations

I got a submarine
You got gasoline
I don't want to talk about
Wars between nations

Not right now
Hey, sexy boots, sexy boots
Get on your boots, yeah
Hey, sexy boots, sexy boots
Not right now
Get on your boots, yeah

Hey, sexy boots, sexy boots
Get on your boots, yeah
Sexy boots, sexy boots
Get on your boots, yeah

Sexy boots, sexy boots
Now
Get on your boots, yeah
Sexy boots, sexy boots
Get on your boots, yeah

Sexy boots, sexy boots
Now
Get on your boots, yeah
Sexy boots, sexy boots
Get on your boots, yeah
