City Of Blinding Lights

VERSE

The more you see the less you know
The less you find out as you grow.......
I knew much more than, than I do know
Neon hearts, Day Glo eyes,
City lit from Fireflies
They're advertising in the sky
For people like us....

CHORUS

You wear a new crown...
Oh you look so BEAU-TI-FUL, tonight.....!

VERSE 2

Don't blink before you laugh
Look ugly in a photograph
Flash photo, circle eyes
Camera dancing
I see when you walk on the plane
I see it in the clothes you make
You give me, the fire inside of me

CHORUS

I need you in my life
You wear a new crown
Oh you look so BEAU-TI-FUL, tonight.....!
Tonight.......tonight
In the city of Blinding Lights......

Gonna be till the end of time....
Oh you look so BEAU-TI-FUL, tonight
Oh you look so BEAU-TI-FUL, tonight



All Because of You lyrics

VERSE 1

I was born a child of grace
Nothing else out of place
Everything was lovely but your beautiful face
It left me no illusion
Stolen hand across the world
Shadow cast across my wound
You ailing is my cue
The light in the confusion

CHORUS

All because of you
ALLLL because of you
All because of you
I am, ALIVE

VERSE 2

Hey, yeh yeh
No no just me and my mind
I like sound of my own voice
I never gave anybody else a choice
Intellectual, Your choice
Break the will of your demand

CHOURS

All because of you
ALLLL because of you
All because of you
I am, ALIVE

I'm Alive, under the roar
Adjust the light, I'm at the door

(cuts out)

CHORUS

All because of you
ALLLL because of you
All because of you
I am.....

Just listened to them again reading the lyrics at the same time.
It does SO much more for me being able to do that. The songs sound so much better now that I know the words.
COBL is indeed, Blinding! ABOY sounds pretty cool too, particularly the guitar in the middle. Can't wait to hear them on the album. Thanks again Aussie! Glad u guys will get ur tour over there next year!

You left me no illusion
Stolen hand across the world
Shadow cast across my room
You and me in my shoes
The light in the confusion

everything was lovely, but your beautiful face
it left me no illusion

and shadow cast across my wound..
you ailing is my cue

I think you're right elevation, cheers bud. I changed the lyrics for you. In the 53 sec clip I thought it was 'you ailing is my cue' but in this recording it doesn't sound like that at all, it sounds like 'you and me in my shoes,' which sounds stupid, so I changed it even though I don't think Bono says it in the TOTP version. It sounds better anyway.

FINALLY got the new TOTP mp3s downloaded (dial-up sucks)! The new mp3s are much clearer. These are the lyrics I'm hearing for COBL.

VERSE 1
The more you see the less you know
The less you find out as you grow
I knew much more then, than I do now
Neon heart, day-glo eyes
The city lit by fireflies
They're advertising in the skies
For people like us

CHORUS
And I miss you when you're not around
I'm getting ready to leave the ground
Oh you look so BEAU-TI-FUL tonight...
(In the city of blinding lights)

VERSE 2
Don't think before you laugh
Look ugly in a photograph
Flash bulbs, purple irises
The cameras can't see
I've seen you walk unafraid
I've seen you in the clothes you've made
And you see the beauty inside of me
What happened to the beauty I had inside of me?

CHORUS
And I miss you when you're not around
I'm getting ready to leave the ground
Oh you look so BEAU-TI-FUL tonight...
Tonight...
In the city of blinding lights

Time...time....time...won't leave me as I am
But time...won't take the boy out of this man
Oh you look so BEAU-TI-FUL tonight
Oh you look so BEAU-TI-FUL tonight
Oh you look so BEAU-TI-FUL tonight...
(Tonight...tonight
In the city of blinding lights)


Bono changes up the end of the chorus a bit between the rehearsal and "the real thing" version. The ( ) are from the rehearsal version.
