In the days
When we were swinging from the trees
I was a monkey
Stealing honey from a swarm of bees
I could taste
I could taste you even then
And I would chase you down the wind

You could go there if you please
Wild honey
And if you go there, go with me
Wild honey

Did I know you?
Did I know you even then?
Before the clocks kept time
Before the world was made

From the cruel sun
You were shelter
You were my shelter and my shade

If you go there with me
Wild honey
You can do just what you please
Wild honey
Yeah, just blowing in the breeze
Wild honey
Wild, wild, wild

I'm still standing, I'm still standing
Where you left me
Are you still growing wild
With everything tame around you?

I send you flowers
Cut flowers for your hall
I know your garden's full
But is there sweetness at all?

oh oh oh

If you go there with me
Wild honey
Won't you take me, take me please
Wild honey
Yeah, swinging through the trees
Wild honey
Wild, wild, wild



The last verse is just gorgeous.

the lyrics and Edge's acoustic guitar playing is awesome

I've seen 3 different lyrics for the one line- cut flowers for your hall, one website said it was good flowers for your heart and another one says could flowers thaw your heart, U2.com has it as cut flowers for your hall so I guess those are the right lyrics. anyway, a great song.

Never assume something's right because its on u2.com. Hah. But I do believe the line is "Cut flowers for your hall."

I would say it is correct. That is the lyric that is printed in the booklet of lyrics that came with the LP.

I always thought that it sounded like good flowers for your heart.
