Give me one more chance
And you'll be satisfied
Give me two more chances
You won't be denied
Well, my heart is where it's always been
My head is somewhere in between
Give me one more chance
Let me be your lover tonight

You're the real thing
Yeah, the real thing
You're the real thing
Even better than the real thing, child

Give me one last chance
And I'm gonna make you sing
Give me half the chance
To ride on the waves that you bring
Well you're honey, child, to a swarm of bees
Gonna blow right through you like a breeze
Give me one last dance
We'll slide down the surface of things

You're the real thing
Yeah, the real thing
You're the real thing
Even better than the real thing
Even better than the real thing, child

Greatest sound in the world. Still, those voices in your head telling you you’re nothing, telling you you’re no one. Then you look around and you see Adam Clayton. Look at him! You see The Edge and he’s someone. And you feel Larry Mullen Jr. And you know the truth is not far from here. But while we wait for it to arrive, might we agree on our drug of choice? Alcohol? Chemicals? There has been. The Holy Spirit? I hope so. But tonight, for sure, it is you, it is you.

You take us higher
You take us higher
You take us higher
You take us higher

Even better than the real thing
Even better than the real thing
Even better than the real thing
Even better than the real thing, child
