Funny, I always hoped it was an ode to Neil Young ("better to burn out than to fade away")

I've listened to that song thousands of times both studio and live versions and have never once heard "find a way" or "find away".

the book included with the UF remaster says "find a way"

I still don't hear it, though.

That must be a typo. The lyric booklet of NLOTH is full of mistakes and spelling/grammar errors as well.

Most notable one in Crazy Tonight: Every Generation gets a chance to change the world, pity the nation that WILL listen to you boys and girls.

Should be won't.

Don't worry baby, it's gonna be all right. Uncertainty can be a guiding light...

I can't hear "find a way" even if I try.

It's "fade away"!!!!!

I listened to a bunch of versions of Bad again after reading that lyric in the liner notes, wondering if the word "fade" which had seemed so obvious to me for years was actually "find"... nope. There is no way in hell Bono sings "find" instead of "fade" in any version I've ever heard, studio or live.

Maybe U2 just ain't fer spellin. I haven't noticed that on "Crazy Tonight" in the lyric booklet.

Anyway we're here to discuss Bad. I def. think it's "fade away". I've always thought it was that and have sung it like that. There's only one person who knows what the official lyrics is. *cough* Bono *cough*
