"It is U2 at our funkiest. Sexy music. Sly and The Family Stone meets Manchester baggy. We came up with a few different verses but Edge really liked the nursery rhyme feel we ended up with... It's a song about a man living on little or no romance. We were going to call the album Fear Of Women at one point. Edge came up with the 'It's all right, it's all right' coda. He wanted to prove a point. He said, 'We've never had a song that says it's alright.' So I said, 'All right.' - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

Johnny, take a walk with your sister, the moon
Let her pale light in to fill up your room
You've been living underground
You've been eating from a can
You've been running away from what you don't understand
Love

Fear of falling
Fear of not jumping
Fear of failure
Fear of winning

It's alright, it's alright, alright
She moves in mysterious ways, oh
It's alright, it's alright, alright
She moves in mysterious ways
No, love

Johnny, take a break, you've been staring at the sun
Don't you know you can't make it with everyone
To touch is to heal, to hurt is to steal
If you wanna turn her on, then say how you feel it

Fear of dying
Fear of no one
You fear love
You fear a woman

It's alright, it's alright, alright
She moves in mysterious ways, oh
It's alright, it's alright, alright
She moves in mysterious ways
It's alright, it's alright, alright
You lift my days and you light up my nights
Oh no

One day you will look back and you'll see
Where you were held
How, by this love, while you could stand there
And not move on the moment
Move through the feeling

It's alright, it's alright, alright
She moves in mysterious ways
She moves in miracle ways
It's alright, it's alright, alright
She moves in mysterious ways
It's alright, it's alright, alright
She moves in mysterious ways
We move through miracle days
It's alright, it's alright, alright
She moves in mysterious ways
Spirit moves in mysterious ways
Oh love, oh love
It's alright, it's alright, alright
You lift my days and you light up my nights, oh
