U2: Three Chords and the Truth

Lyrics to the U2 album October

Gloria

I try to sing this song
I, I try to stand up
But I can't find my feet
I try, I try to speak up
But only in you I'm complete

Gloria in te domine
Gloria - exultate
Gloria - gloria
Oh Lord, loosen my lips

I try to sing this song
I, I try to get in
But I can't find the door
The door is open
You're standing there
You let me in

Gloria in te domine
Gloria - exultate
Oh Lord, if I had anything, anything at all
I give it to you
I give it to you

Gloria in te domine
Gloria - gloria
Gloria in te domine
Gloria - gloria
Gloria - miserere
Gloria - gloria

I Fall Down

Julie says: John I'm getting nowhere
I wrote this letter - hope to get to someplace soon
I want to get up when I wake up
When I get up I fall down

Julie - wake up
Julie - tell the story
You wrote the letter
Said you were gonna get there someday
Gonna walk in the sun and the wind and the rain
Never walk back again
Now you fall down
You're falling down
You fall down
You fall down

Julie - say something
Julie - say you're sorry
You're gonna get better
You better not leave me here anyway
I want to get up when you wake up
When I get up I fall down
I'm falling down
I fall down
I broke myself

I fall - I fall down
I'm falling down
I fall down when you fall down
When I'm falling down is when you're falling down
When you fall down I fall down
I fall down

I Threw a brick Through a Window

I was talking
I was talking to myself - somebody else
Talk, talk, talking
I couldn't hear a word - a word he said
He was my brother, brother
I said there was no other way out of here
Be my brother, brother
Got to get out - got to get out

I was walking - I was walking into walls
I'm back again - I just keep walkin
I walk into a window to see myself and my reflection
When I thought about it - my direction
Going nowhere - going nowhere

No-one, no-one is blinder
Than he who will not see
No-one, no-one is blinder than me

I was talking - I was talking in my sleep
I can't stop talk, talk, talking
I'm talking to you
It's up to you
Be my brother, brother
There is another way out of here
In my brother, brother
Got to get out - got to get out
Got to get out of here

Rejoice

It's falling, it's falling
And outside the buildings are tumbling down
And inside a child on the ground
Says he'd do it again
But what am I to do?
What in the world am I to say?
There's nothing else to do
He says he'll change the world someday
I rejoice

This morning I fell out of bed
When I woke up to what he has said
Everyone's crazy, but I'm too lazy to lie
What am I to do?
Just tell me what am I supposed to say?
I can't change the world
But I can change the world in you
Rejoice, rejoice

What am I to do?
Just tell me what am I supposed to say?
I can't change the world
But I can change the world in me
I rejoice

I don't know
I don't know what to change
Rejoice, rejoice

Fire

[Falling, falling] The sun is burning black
[Falling, falling] It's beating on my back
With a fire - with a fire
[Falling, falling] And the moon is running red
[Falling, falling] It's pulling me instead
With a fire - fire

But there's a fire inside
When I'm falling over
There's a fire in me
When I call out
I feel some fire, fire
I'm going home

[Falling, falling] The stars are falling down
[Falling, falling] They knock me to the ground
With a fire - fire

And there's a fire inside
When I'm falling over
There's a fire in me
When I call out
There's a fire inside
When I'm falling over
I feel the fire, fire
I'm burning up

Tomorrow

Won't you come back tomorrow?
Won't you come back tomorrow?
Won't you come back tomorrow?
Can I sleep tonight?

Outside - somebody's outside
Somebody's knocking at the door
There's a black car parked on the side of the road
Don't go to the door
Don't go to the door

I'm going out
I'm going outside, mother
I'm going out there

Won't you be back tomorrow?
Won't you be back tomorrow?
Will you be back tomorrow?

Who broke the window?
Who broke down the door?
Who tore the curtain?
And who was it for?
Who healed the wounds?
Who heals the scars?
Open the door
Open the door

Won't you come back tomorrow?
Won't you be back tomorrow?
Will you be back tomorrow?
Can I sleep tonight?

'Cause I want you - I want you
I really want you
I want you to be back tomorrow
I want you to be back tomorrow
Will you be back tomorrow?

Won't you be back tomorrow?
Won't you be back tomorrow?
Will you be back tomorrow?

Open up, open up to the lamb of God
To the love of he who made the blind to see
He's coming back - he's coming back
I believe it - Jesus coming

I'm gonna be there
I'm gonna be there, mother
I'm gonna be there

October

October
And the trees are stripped bare
Of all they wear
What do I care?
October
And kingdoms rise
And kingdoms fall
But you go on
And on

With A Shout

Oh, and where do we go?
Where do we go from here?
Where to go?
To the side of a hill
Blood was spilt
We were still looking at each other
We're going back there
Jerusalem, Jerusalem

Shout - shout
With a shout - shout it out
Shout - shout it out

I want to go to the one
To the side of the one
To the feet of he who made me see
To the side of a hill
Where we were still
We were filled with a love
We're gonna be loved
Jerusalem, Jerusalem

Jerusalem, Jerusalem --

Shout - shout - with a shout
Shout - with a shout

Stranger In A Strange Land

Stranger, stranger in a strange land
He looked at me like I was the one who should run
We asked him to smile for a photograph
Waited a while to see if we could make him laugh

A soldier asked for a cigarette
His smiling face I can't forget
He looked like you across the street
But that's a long way from here
And I wish you were here
And I wish you were here

Stranger, stranger in a strange land
He looked at me like I was the one who should run
I watched as he watched us get back on the bus
I watched the way it was
The way it was when he was with us

And I really don't mind sleeping on the floor
But I can't sleep after what I saw
I wrote this letter to tell you the way I feel
I wish you were here
I wish you were here
To see what I could see - to hear
And I wish you were here

Scarlet

Rejoice, rejoice

Is That All?

Singing this song makes me angry
I'm not angry with you
Is that all? is that all? is that all?

Singing this song makes me happy
I'm happy with you
Singing this song makes me dance
Is that all? is that all? is that all?

Is that all? is that all? is that all?
Is that all you want from me?

Is that all? is that all?
