[T]he hardest place in the world for what we try and pull off as U2 . . . is the U.K., where the arts and politics are very separate. -- Bono

Ice, your only rivers run cold
These city lights, they shine as silver and gold
Dug from the night, your eyes as black as coal

Bring it up, bring it up

Walk on by, walk on through
Walk till you run and don't look back for here I am

Carnival, the wheels fly and the colours spin
Through alcohol, red wine that punctures the skin
Face to face in a dry and waterless place

Walk on by, walk on through
So sad to beseige your love so hang on
Stay this time, stay tonight in a lie
I'm only asking but I, I think you know
Come on,take me away
Well, come on, take me home
Come on, take me away
We're home again

Home again, Paris
With the Edge

Ever, ever, ever high
And here she comes
Yet she's so far

And if the mountains should crumble
Or disappear into the sea
Not a tear, no not I
Stay this time
Stay tonight in a lie
I'm only asking but I think you know
Stay this time
Stay tonight
Ever after is a long time
And if you save your love
Save it all
Well, push me too far
Don't push me too far tonight
Tonight, tonight
