And my old man was into opera, which, as far as I was concerned, was just heavy metal. I like those bawdy opera songs. -- Bono

She said it wasn't cold, she left her coat unbuttoned
She wore canvas shoes, white canvas shoes
Around her neck she wore a silver necklace
'It was given to me by my father' she said
'It was given to me'
She took the back way home past the lights at Summerhill
Turned left on to the north strand and on, out towards the sea
He said he was an artist but he really painted billboards
In large capital letters, in large capital letters
He was telling jokes, nobody else would listen to him
I saw you that day, your lips were cherry red
Your legs were crossed, your arms wide open
Your hair was coloured gold
And like a field of corn you were blown by the wind
You were blown by the wind

Walk, walk, walk to the water
Walk with me awhile
Walk, walk, walk to the roadside
Walk with me in a light

A room in the Royal hotel, the sea facing views
A man with a suitcase full of things he doesn't need
I'm looking through your window
I'm walking through your doorway
I'm on the outside, let me in
Let me love you
Let me love you
Let me

Walk, walk, walk to the water
Walk with me
Walk, walk, walk to the roadside
Walk with me a while
