I remember the frustration of hearing a melody in my head but not being able to quite put it down. So you learn to rely on other people, the band, and you start thinking that's a weakness. But it's a strength to rely on others.-- Bono, 2004

"So that song is about torment, sexual but also psychological, about how repressing desires makes them stronger. The most important line is probably, 'And you give yourself away.' It just flipped it and it releases all the mental tension, which is when the 'Aah-aah' comes out. That is what giving yourself away is, musically." - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

See the stone set in your eyes
See the thorn twist in your side
I wait for you
Slight of hand and twist of fate
On a bed of nails she makes me wait
And I'm waiting for you

With or without you
With or without you

Through the storm we reach the shore
You give it all but I want more
And I'm waiting for you

With or without you
With or without you
I can't live
With or without you

Yeah, you
Yeah, you

And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give
You give
And you give yourself away

My hands are tied, my body bruised
You've got me with nothing to win
And nothing left to lose

And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give
You give
And you give yourself away

With or without you
With or without you
I can't live
With or without you

With or without you
With or without you
I can't live
I can't live
I can't live
I can't live
With or without you

Goodnight

Sing my song
It's what I feel
Come and sing, man
This is real
From my soul
Coming and hear
I can feel
My senses, dear

Yeah, we'll shine like stars in the summer night
We'll shine like stars in a real mind
One heart
One heart
One heart
One heart

Thank you
