crys Elevation

At one point in this song, I'm not sure at what time, Bono says something I can't under stand. (it's not in the tomb raider mix though) Does anyone know what is is because it's driving me crazy! Thanx!

Not sure, but here are the lyrics. Maybe this will help...

High, higher than the sun
You shoot me from a gun
I need you to elevate me here


At corner of your lips
As the orbit of your hips
Eclipse
You elevate my soul


I've got no self control
Been living like a mole now
Going down, excavation
I and I in the sky
You make me feel like I can fly
So high
Elevation


A star
Lit up like a cigar
Strung out like a guitar
Maybe you can educate my mind


Explain all these controls
Can't sing but I've got soul
The goal is elevation


A mole
Digging in a hole
Digging up my soul now
Going down, excavation


I and I in the sky
You make me feel like I can fly
So high
Elevation


Love
Lift me up out of these blues
Won't you tell me something true
I believe in you


A mole
Digging in a hole
Digging up my soul now
Going down, excavation


Higher now
In the sky
You make me feel like I can fly
So high
Elevation


Elevation
Elevation
Elevation
Elevation

Thanx, but the thing isn't in the lyrics. I just listened to elevation again and it starts on 1:11 and ends at 1:15. I tryed to get what it says but I couldn't!

I know what she means, but damned if I know what those words are. It's just after the first chorus, right? In between the first chorus and the second verse...

i do too. i think he says something about shake your arms??

i'm a BAD interpreter of lyrics. i used to have to guess them when the stupid people wouldn't include the words. once i got the net, i'd go online and find the lyrics, and see how dead wrong i was!

Oh! I know what your talking about!

Well, I swear I made out "and swing your partner" in there.
Something, something "and swing your partner." I have no idea if I'm right but...

Frpm the Hidden Meaning site:
Quote:
Between the first chorus and the second verse of Elevation, Bono can be heard ad-libbing. Some ideas as what he's saying:
"Take it off and pit it out."
"Take it off, this suit is hot" - in this case he could be talking about the "suit of light" from Gone.

Someone once came up with this possibility:

Check it out- I'm smoking pot

That's my favorite.
