U2 Wish For You...

(warning: a bit of sappy content to follow)

U2 Wish For You To...
smell the salt of the sea
have people to call your tribe
dream out loud
always wear a safety belt
don't find yourself in someone else
let it go
taste every sensation
see those fighter planes
baby please come home
see where the bright lights and big city meet
be careful where you aim
know that there's something more tonight, tonight, tonight
take the colors of my imagination.. and turn it into your own prayer
run and not grow weary
pick me up bits and pieces on this floor
give me one more chance ... and i'm gonna make you sing
find your feet
believe in love
feel the healing in her fingertips
know if you walkaway, i will follow
hear your voice whispering come away now
get so high you can't come down
be there
see what's on the other side
swim against the tide
six and nine again
let the bells rings out
conquer your past, the future is here at last
see the sunshine in her soul
get hot in a photo booth
see their tears in the rainfall
Let her pale light in to fill up your room
move on this moment follow this feeling
offer him an ocean of what he's never seen
be one
stay on to figure out my midlife crisis
Suggest
go on...and on...
do what you should
tell me her name
get up off your knees
change the world in me
do something about where we're going
say something I am someone
want to see what the scratching brings
Stay...and the night would be enough
get yourself together
Wipe the tears from your eyes
talk 'til you run
put me back together again
reach out for the one I tried to destroy
listen to the reed in the saxophone
Let me love you
catch that flame
tear down the walls that hold me inside
say I'm glad to be alive
get you through the night

U2 Wish For Someone to....for you
explain all these controls
elevate your soul
call out your name
pay for your crashed car
have you under their skin
to colour in the cold grey night
say that all roads lead to where you are
understand your fears
take you to some twilight land
take me slow dancing
bring you where two roads meet
run to you, run to you, run to you
go there with you

U2 Wish For You
Grace
a new song to sing
a sort of homecoming
salvation in the blues
beauty to be so kind
a friend to take you out of this place
a thought to change the world
some strange music to drag you in
dancing shoes
everlasting love
ordinary addictions
not to lose yourself along the way
a Phoenix rising
a heartland
a moment to last a little bit longer
the highest mountain
something to go on
some protection, the thinner the skin
dreams be realized
a sound that's gonna drown out the world
a temple
childhood
Peace on Earth
a spiral staircase
gravity luck and time
A decent melody
summer rain
blue skies up ahead
the first time
the gift to get me through the gates of that mansion
three sunrises
tomorrow
whispers and moans
an order in all of this disorder
a place that has to be believed to be seen

------------------
Took you to a place now you can't get back

*U2 Take Me Higher*

That was great. I can't imagine how much work you put into writing that.

That was cool.

It just goes to show how powerful B's lyrics are even extracted from the songs, even mixd up and even taken out of context.

He really has a way with words...

Another productive day at work, huh Car?

Awesome job- really makes you think. It's like one of those natural high posters that you read.. all of those nice moments that make you feel great. I guess we could put U2 on a natural high list.. I know Larry gets MY adrenaline pumping

Thanks girl

what a beautiful idea carrie!
i know what you mean about his lyrics...they are are amazing, it's difficult to explain to someone who doesn't appreciate u2 how much his lyrics speak to us/me. i bet most of us feel the same way, he is a true poet with a beautiful heart! ((bighug))

Is it getting hot in here or is it just ADAM??

Reminds me of why I love U2 so much.

Good work

BTW, I think you could fit all that on one t-shirt utilizing both front, back and sides.
