"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

Elevation
Higher, 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
I've got no self-control
Been living like a mole
Now, going down, excavation
I and I in the sky
You make me feel like I can fly so high
Elevation
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
Now, going down, excavation
I and I in the sky
You make me feel like I so high
Elevation
Elevation

Love, lift me out of these blues
Won't you tell me something true
I believe in you

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
Elevation
Elevation
Elevation
Elevation
