"I am not sure the best version ended up on the album. The same could be said of 'If You Wear That Velvet Dress.' It wanted to be a lounge classic. It ended up in an airport lounge as background noise." - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

Tonight the moon is playing tricks again
Yeah, I'm feeling seasick again
The whole world could just dissolve
Into a glass of water
I've been good
'Cause I know you don't want me to
Do you really want me to be blue as you
It's her daylight that gets me through

If you wear that velvet dress
If you wear that velvet dress

Tonight the moon is a mirrorball
Light flickers from across the hall
Who'll catch the star when it falls

If you wear that velvet dress
If you wear that velvet dress
That velvet dress
