Handwritten Lyrics

"Larry Mullen was – without anyone else playing – he was just trying out a few beats on the drums. And Brian Eno sampled him. Brian Eno's station was right next to Larry's - we have little stations in the studio. - so at any point Brian could record what Larry was doing, and manipulate it and sample it and so on. He did that, and it started out as a little Bo Diddley sample beat. Kind of jazzy, but it had a vibe to it. As soon as Eno sampled that, we jumped right on top of it and started playing over it, including Larry. And we came up with what I think is space age rock and roll - space age rockabilly. Bono had this idea -  where the sea meets the sky and you can't tell the difference between the two. And the vocal happened very early on, that whole - a-whoawhoawhoawhoa! - that little hook. The vocal delivery, the vibe was there right from day one. I was very proud of Bono." - Daniel Lanois, Interview 2009

I know a girl who's like the sea
I watch her changing every day for me
Oh yeah, woah

One day she's still, the next she swells
You can hear the universe in her sea shells
Oh yeah, woah

No line on the horizon
No line
No line on the horizon
No line

I know a girl with a hole in her heart
She said infinity is a great place to start
Oh, no, you know it's gonna be alone

The lady sent me it to hang your song in, lover
I wanna be the sea
You know, say you're alone

No line on the horizon
No line
No line on the horizon
No line

The song in my head
Is now on my mind
I put you on pause
I try to rewind my love
And replay, hey

Every night
I have the same dream
I'm hatching some plot
Scheming some scheme
Oh yeah, woah

I'm a traffic cop
Rue du Marais
The siren's wailing
And it's me that wants to get away

No, no line
No, no line
No
No line on the horizon
No
No, no line
Line
No
No line on the horizon
No
No, no line
Line
No, no line on the horizon
No, no line
