The changed lyrics of New York in ND

I'm crying all over again...
From www.u2wanderer.org:

New York
(Live from Notre Dame 10.10.01)


In New York, facing us all, a lot of choices
In New York I found some friends to drown out the other voices
Voices on a cell phone, voices from home
'Are you alright baby, not staying alone?'
New York, I've got a place in New York...

In New York summers get hot, well into the hundreds
You can't walk around the block without a change of clothing
Hot as a hairdryer in the space
You turn it up and you stick around the place
New York, I just got a place... New York

New York... New York
New York... New York

In New York you can forget, forget how to sit still
And in New York you can forget
Just how strong the city's will

New York, New York
New York, New York

It's in New York...
New York...


The Irish been coming here for years
Acting like they own the place
They got the airport, city hall, concrete, asphalt
They even got the police
Irish, Italian, Jews, Blacks, Hispanics

Religious nuts, political fanatics don't belong
That's not a New York kinda song
What's going on?

New York!
New York, New York

New York...
New York...


In New York, lots of problems, mid life crisis
It's not a problem, it's just... too many choices
Hit an iceberg in my life
But yeah I'm still afloat
I lost my balance, you lost your wife
In the queue for the lifeboat
You're putting the women and children first
I've just got an unquenchable thirst for New York

New York, New York
New York, New York
New York, New York

In the stillness of the evening
When the sun has had its day
I thought I heard you whispering
Come away child

New York

Bu bu bu da da
Bu bu bu da da
Bu bu bu da da

New York...

Me too...Did you notice, I think it was right when he sang about "a lot of choices," it looked like Bono was wiping away a tear? I was basically choked up start to finish.

Oh Gina Marie, there go the tears again.
scatteroflight, I noticed that. You could feel it was very emotional for Bono to sing NY.
I agree Ally, the NY shows will be very special, will you be there?

Yes, NicaMom, I'll be at 2 of the NY shows- the 24th and 25th. I'll be sure to post a full report for you guys. And Gina, that was a very moving picture- thank you for posting it.

No whos or whys
No-one cries like a mother cries
For peace on Earth
She never got to say goodbye
To see the colour in his eyes
Now he's in the dirt
Peace on Earth

Thanks Mariana

Those are powerful words.
And they fit perfectly...Unfortunately
That's the reason why we love Bono and his ability with words so much.
