Bono Lines

What are the words that Bono says that makes your heart break and make you feel your legs weak?
I have a couple of them...

"Dance with me" - Promenade
"Never let me go" - Never let me go
"Let me love you true" - The Ground Beneath her Feet
"I'm on the outside, let me in, let me love you" and "walk with me" - Walk to the Water
"Kiss your lips and break your heart" - Until the end of the world
"Who's gonna take the place of me?" - Who's gonna ride your wild horses (actually, the whole lyric breaks my heart )

There are a lot of many other words that Bono says.. but this are the ones that I can remember of...
What are yours?

In a little while, surely you'll be mine
In a little while, I'll be there
In a little while, this hurt will hurt no more
I'll be home, love

I always go crazy with lists like these...sorry!

The entire last verse of Acrobat

What you don't have you don't need it now
What you don't know you can feel it somehow
-Beautiful Day

Baby don't cry -Electrical Storm

When the night has no end
And the day yet to begin
As the room spins around
I need your love
-Hawkmoon 269

See the sun rise over her skin
Dawn changes everything

Looking for the father of my two little girls -MoFo

One day I'll die
The choice will not be mine
Will it be too late
You can't fight fate
-Out of Control

Some excellent ones here.

Hmm, let's see...

Oh, don't sorrow, no, don't weep
For tonight, at last
I am coming home
-"A Sort Of Homecoming"

Come on take me away
Come on take me home
Home again
-"The Unforgettable Fire"

Oh...tell me...
Charity dance with me
Turn me around tonight

Like a Phoenix rising needs a holy tree
Like the sweet revenge of a bitter enemy
I need your love
-"Hawkmoon 269" (I just particularly get a kick out of the "sweet revenge of a bitter enemy" line...very interesting)

The ruins to the right of me
Will soon have lost sight of me
-"Love Rescue Me" (just the way he sings those two always grabs my attention)

I used to make love under a red sunset-"When Love Comes To Town" (...)

Stay with the demons you drowned
Stay with the spirit I've found
Stay, and the night would be enough
-"Stay" (again, just love the way those lines are sung-adds to their meaning)


I want you to know that you don't need me anymore
I want you to know you don't need anyone
Or anything at all

Who's to say where the wind will take you?
Who's to say what it is will break you?
I don't know which way the wind will blow

Who's to know when the time has come around?
I don't want to see you cry
I know that this is not goodbye
-"Kite" ( ...)

I'll stop there for now. .

All the ones above along witht:

[i] i love you cuz i need to
not because i need you [i]

[i] I've got no home in this world
Just you and you're not mine [i]

[i]spirit of the rising sun, lift me up
hold me there and never let me fall [i]

[i]my eyes grew heavy and my lips they could not speak[i]

[i]Love is clockworks and cold steel
Fingers too numb to feel.
Squeeze the handle, blow out the candle
Love is blindness.[i]

velvet dress <--- leaves me a puddle on the floor!

there are more, but .....

Pretty much all of AIWIY, but these lines in particular ...

"You say you'll give me eyes in the moon of blindness
A river in a time of dryness
A harbour in the tempest.
All the promises we make, from the cradle to the grave
When all I need is you."

I have 'A harbour in the tempest' tattooed on my arm. Such a great line.

It reminds me of an Oscar Wilde poem called "Her Voice" --

Sweet, there is nothing left to say
But this, that love is never lost,
Keen winter stabs the breasts of May
Whose crimson roses burst his frost,
Ships tempest-tossed
Will find a harbour in some bay,
And so we may.

Sometimes I feel like checking out
I wanna get it wrong
can't always be strong
and love it won't be long....

how about the whole song 'always'?
for me, it's not as much the man 'Mr. Hewson', but Who he has pointed to . . .
yes, he's not the best example, being the 'Rock Star', but the man dcoes have some serious words, that I'm sure he'd love us to take to heart.

Rather than the whole 'rock star' shallow thing.

we leave it all behind,
all we can take is real love,
real faith & hope 1 Corinthians 13

The "you put your lips to her lips to stop the lie" line from So Cruel always breaks my heart...

Every word of Kite gets me everytime. I get lost in that song very easily.

And I, like a firework, explode
Roman candle lightning lights up the sky

Sleep tonight
And may your dreams
Be realized
If the thunder cloud
Passes rain
So let it rain
Rain down on him
So let it be
So let it be

You got to cry without weeping
Talk without speaking
Scream without raising your voice

In the trees our sons stand naked
Through the walls our daughters cry
See their tears in the rainfall

And I'd join the movement
If there was one I could believe in
Yeah I'd break bread and wine
If there was a church I could receive in
'cause I need it now

My father is a rich man
He wears a rich man's cloak
Gave me the keys to his kingdom coming
Gave me a cup of gold
He said I have many mansions
And there are many rooms to see
But I left by the back door
And I threw away the key

Then will there be no time for sorrow
Then will there be no time for shame
And though I can't say why
I know I've got to believe

What once was hurt
What once was friction
What left a mark
No longer stings
Because grace makes beauty
Out of ugly things

I love you 'cause I understand
That God has given me your hand
He holds me in a tiny fist
And still I need your kiss

Let's see colors that have never been seen
Let's go to places no one else has been
In my mind
All of the time
I know that's not enough
Well if the sky can crack
There must be some way back
To love and only love

Is there a time for keeping your distance
A time to turn your eyes away
Is there a time for keeping your head down
For getting on with your day

Its early fall
There's a cloud in the New York skyline
Innocence dragged across a yellow line

There was a badness that had its way
But love wasn't lost, love will have its day
