Stuck in a Moment You Can't Get Out of

I'm not afraid of anything in this world
There's nothing you can throw at me that I haven't already heard
I'm just trying to find a decent melody
A song that I can sing in my own company

I never thought you were a fool
But darling look at you
You gotta stand up straight, carry your own weight
These tears are going nowhere, baby

You've got to get yourself together
You've got stuck in a moment and now you can't get out of it
Don't say that later will be better now you're stuck in a moment
And you can't get out of it

I will not forsake, the colors that you bring
The nights you filled with fireworks
They left you with nothing
I am still enchanted by the light you brought to me
I listen through your ears, and through your eyes I can see

And you are such a fool
To worry like you do
I know it's tough, and you can never get enough
Of what you don't really need now...my oh my

You've got to get yourself together
You've got stuck in a moment and you can't get out of it
Oh love, look at you now
You've got yourself stuck in a moment and you can't get out of it

I was unconscious, half asleep
The water is warm 'til you discover how deep...
I wasn't jumping...for me it was a fall
It's a long way down to nothing at all

You've got to get yourself together
You've got stuck in a moment and you can't get out of it
Don't say that later will be better
Now you're stuck in a moment and you can't get out of it

And if the night runs over
And if the day won't last
And if our way should falter
Along the stony pass

And if the night runs over
And if the day won't last
And if your way should falter
Along this stony pass
It's just a moment
This time will pass


I don't care what anyone says. This is one of my favourite songs. Absolutely gorgeous melody. A great example of a song where no one stands out, but when they all come together, it's amazing. The outro is beautiful. Beautiful guitar, synth, vocals, that falsetto The song is so uplifting. Helps me every time. Never used to be a big fan, but now I adore it.

Totally agree with you (except about hearing it live )

Awesome in all forms.

I also like the American Football video.

"Helps me every time"

Totally agree with you there. Beautiful song, and the lyric really hits home hard. I used to listen to it all the time.

I loved it live last year as well, though I could barely hear Edge's falsetto over the GA crowd! (Had no trouble hearing Bono though, lol)!

brilliant song.. Loved the song from the moment I heard it.
One of the few really great songs from 2000-... (and probably the best..)

Good song, not bad live.
US football video- worse U2 video ever.

yeah i know! Total pile of shite, when I saw that was the one used on the best of dvd i was a bit annoyed to be honest as the DVD player I have is a little basic to put it one way and I still can't get it to fiddle about with easter egg stuff!

Any idea why they opted for a second video? Other than the fact that the song was released at seperate time all over the place? I really wish the football gets destroyed at some point

I don't care what you think about the song; it fails at grammar.

How many opportunities will you ever get to see Edge slip and fall on nachos though?

Without doubt, A Celebration video at least has some charm to it.
A Celebration is a much better song to. IMO.

The "J Mix" version of this song is amazing... almost like the Vertigo tour version.

SYCMIOYO is a classic. When you're feeling down there's nothing better.
