Sunday Bloody Sunday-War (1983)


VERSE 1:
I can't believe the news today.
But I can't close my eyes and make it go away.
How long? How long must we sing this song?
How long? How long?
Tonight we can be as one. Tonight.
Broken bottles under children's feet,
Bodies strewn across a dead end street,
But I won't heed the battle call,
It puts my back up, puts my back up against the wall.

CHORUS:
Sunday, Bloody Sunday.
Sunday, Bloody Sunday.

VERSE 2:
And the battle's just begun,
There's many lost, but tell me who has won?
The trenches dug within our hearts,
And mother's children, brothers, sisters torn apart.

CHORUS:
Sunday, Bloody Sunday.
Sunday, Bloody Sunday.

How long? How long must we sing this song?
How long? How long? Tonight we can be as one. Tonight, tonight.

Sunday, Bloody Sunday.
Sunday, Bloody Sunday.

Wipe the tears from your eyes,
Wipe your tears away, wipe your tears away.
Wipe your bloodshot eyes.

Sunday, Bloody Sunday.
Sunday, Bloody Sunday.

VERSE 3:
And it's true we are immune,
When fact is fiction and TV is reality,
And today the millions cry,
We eat and drink, while tomorrow they die.
The real battle just begun.
To claim the victory Jesus won,
On a Sunday, Bloody Sunday,
Sunday, Bloody Sunday.

New Year's Day-War (1983)


All is quiet on New Year's Day,
A world in white gets underway,
And I want to be with you,
To be with you night and day.
Nothing changes on New Year's Day. On New Year's Day.

I will be with you again.
I will be with you again.

Under a blood-red sky.
A crowd has gathered in black and white,
Arms entwined, the chosen few,
Newspapers say, it says, says it's true, it's true
And we can break through,
Though torn in two we can be one.
I, I will begin again.
I, I will begin again.

Oh and maybe the time is right,
Oh maybe tonight.
I will be with you again.
I will be with you again.

And so we are told, this is the golden age
And gold is the reason for the wars we wage.
And I want to be with you to be with you night and day.
Nothing changes on New Year's Day. On New Year's Day.

Where the Streets Have No Name-The Joshua Tree (1987)


VERSE 1:
I want to run
I want to hide
I want to tear down the walls
That hold me inside.
I want to reach out
And touch the flame
Where the streets have no name.

I want to feel
Sunlight on my face
See that dust cloud disappear
Without a trace.
I want to take shelter
From the poison rain
Where the streets have no name.

CHORUS:
Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
We're still building then burning down love
Burning down love
And when I go there
I go there with you
It's all I can do.

VERSE 2:
The cities a flood
And our love turns to rust
We're beaten and blown by the wind
And trampled in dust.
I'll show you a place
High on a desert plain
Where the streets have no name.

CHORUS:
Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
Still building
Then burning down love
Burning down love
And when I go there
I go there with you
It's all I can do.

I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For-The Joshua Tree (1987)


VERSE 1:
I have climbed the highest mountains
I have run through the fields
Only to be with you
Only to be with you
I have run
I have crawled
I have scaled
These city walls, these city walls
Only to be with you
But I still haven't found
What I'm looking for
But I still haven't found
What I'm looking for

VERSE 2:
I have kissed honey lips
Felt the healing
In her fingertips
It burned like fire
This burning desire
I have spoke
With the tongue of angels
I have held
The hand of the devil
It was warm in the night
I was cold as a stone.
But I still haven't found
What I'm looking for.
But I still haven't found
What I'm looking for.

VERSE 3:
I believe in
Kingdom Come
Then all the colors
Will bleed into one, bleed into one
But yes I'm still running!
You broke the bonds
You loosed the chains
You carried the cross
And my shame, and my shame
You know I believe it.
But I still haven't found
What I'm looking for.
But I still haven't found
What I'm looking for.

With or Without You-The Joshua Tree (1987)


VERSE 1:
See the stone set in your eyes
See the thorn twist in your side
I wait for you
Sleight of hand and twist of fate
On a bed of nails she makes me wait
And I wait without you

With or without you
With or without you

VERSE 2:
Through the storm we reach the shore
You give it all but I want more
And I'm waiting for you.

CHORUS:
With or without you.
With or without you.
I can't live
With or without you.

And you give yourself away.
And you give yourself away.
And you give
And you give
And you give yourself away.

VERSE 3:
My hands are tied
My body bruised, she's got me with
Nothing left to win
And nothing else to lose

And you give yourself away.
And you give yourself away.
And you give
And you give
And you give yourself away.

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

Bullet the Blue Sky-The Joshua Tree (1987)


VERSE 1:
In the howling wind
Comes a stinging rain
See it driving nails
Into the souls on the tree of pain
From the firefly
A red orange glow
See the face of fear
Running scared in the valley below.

CHORUS:
Bullet the blue sky
Bullet the blue sky
Bullet the blue
Bullet the blue

VERSE 2:
In the locust wind
Comes a rattle and hum
Jacob wrestled the angel
And the angel was overcome
Plant a demon seed
You raise a flower of fire
See them burning crosses
See the flames higher and higher

CHORUS:
Bullet the blue sky
Bullet the blue sky
Bullet the blue
Bullet the blue

Suit and tie comes up to me
His face red
Like a rose on a thorn bush
And he's peeling off those dollar bills
Slapping them down
One hundred, two hundred
And I can see the fighter planes
And I can see the fighter planes
Across the mud huts as the children sleep
Through the alleys of a quiet city street
Up the staircase to the first floor
We turn the key and slowly unlock the door
A man breathes deep into the saxophone
Through the walls we hear the city groan
Outside is America
Outside is America
