"It's a tune called 'Elevation.' It's in its raw form. I think it's gonna go off for us. It's got a really spongy sound. We've found that when you're men, the slower tempos can be funky." - Bono, Rolling Stone 2001

Tonight we'll make love
Sexy people
Milano
Bono, Bono
Sexy person
But I can't dance
Irish people, they can't dance
Teach me how to dance
It's ok, be uncool

High, higher than the sun
You shoot me from a gun
I need you to elevate me here
At the corner of your lips
As the orbit of your hips
Eclipse

You elevate my soul
Got no self-control
Digging like a mole
Now, going down, excavation
I and I in the sky
You make me feel like I can fly so high
Elevation

It's ok to flirt
It's ok to flirt

A mole digging in a hole
Digging up my soul
Going down, excavation
I and I in the sky
You make me feel like I can fly so high
Elevation

A star lit up like a cigar
Strung out like a guitar
Maybe you can educate my mind
Explain all these controls
Can't sing but I've got soul
The goal is elevation

A mole digging in a hole
Digging up my soul
Going down, excavation
I and I in the sky
You make me feel like I can fly so high
Elevation

Love, lift me out of these blues
I believe in you
And you believe in love

A mole digging in a hole
Digging up my soul
Going down, excavation
I and I in the sky
You make me feel like I can fly so high
Elevation
