Where The Streets Have No Name

I want to run I want to hide
I want to tear down the walls
That hold me inside
I want to reach out and touch the flame
Where the streets have no name

I want to feel sunlight on my face
I see the dust cloud disappear
Without a trace
I want to take shelter from the poison rain
Where the streets have no name

Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
We’re still building then burning down love
Burning down love
And when I go there I go there with you
It’s all I can do

The city’s aflood
And our love turns to rust
We’re beaten and blown by the wind
Trampled in dust
I’ll show you a place high on a desert plain
Where the streets have no name

Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
We’re still building then burning down love
Burning down love
And when I go there I go there with you
It’s all I can do

Our love turns to rust
We’re beaten and blown by the wind
Blown by the wind
Oh, and I see love
See our love turn to rust
We’re beaten and blown by the wind
Blown by the wind

Oh, when I go there
I go there with you
It’s all I can do

I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For

I have climbed highest mountain
I have run through the fields
Only to be with you
Only to be with you

I have run
I have crawled
I have scaled these city walls
These city walls
Only to be with you

But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for
But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for

I have kissed honey lips
Felt the healing in her fingertips
It burned like fire
This burning desire

I have spoke with the tongue of angels
I have held the hand of a devil
It was warm in the night
I was cold as a stone

But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for
But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for

I believe in the kingdom come
Then all the colors will bleed into one
Bleed into one
Well yes I’m still running

You broke the bonds and you
Loosed the chains
Carried the cross
Of my shame
Of my shame
You know I believed it

But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for
But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for
But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for
But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for

With Or Without You

See the stone set in your eyes
See the thorn twist in your side
I’ll wait for you

Slight of hand and twist of fate
On a bed of nails she makes me wait
And I wait without you

With or without you
With or without you

Through the storm we reach the shore
You give it all, but I want more
And I’m waiting for you

With or without you
With or without you
I can’t live
With or without you

And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give
And you give
And you give yourself away

My hands are tied
My body bruised, she’s got me with
Nothing to win and
Nothing left to lose

And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give
And you give
And you give yourself away

With or without you
With or without you

I can’t live
With or without you
With or without you
With or without you

I can’t live
With or without you
With or without you

Bullet The Blue Sky

In the howling wind comes a stinging rain
See it driving nails into the souls on the tree of pain
From the firefly, a red orange glow
See the face of fear running scared in the valley below

Sky
Sky
Bullet the blue sky / Sky
Bullet the blue sky / Sky
Bullet the blue / Sky
Bullet the blue / Sky

In the locust wind comes a rattle and hum
Jacob wrestled the angel and the angel was overcome
You plant a demon seed, you raise a flower of fire
See them burning crosses
See the flames higher and higher

Sky
Sky
Bullet the blue sky / Sky
Bullet the blue sky / Sky
Bullet the blue / Sky
Bullet the blue / Sky

This guy comes up to me
His face red like a rose on a thorn bush
Like all the colours of a royal flush
And he’s peeling off those dollar bills
Slapping them down
One hundred, two hundred
And I can see those fighter planes
And I can see those fighter planes

Across the mud huts where the children sleep
Through the alleys of a quiet city street
You take the staircase to the first floor
Turn the key and slowly unlock the door
As a man breathes into a saxophone
And through the walls you hear the city groan
Outside it’s America
Outside it’s America
(America)

Across the field you see the sky ripped open
See the rain pour through the gaping wound
Pounding the women and children
Who run
Into the arms
Of America

Running To Stand Still

And so she woke up
Woke up from where she was
Lying still
Said I gotta do something
About where we’re going
Step on a steam train
Step out of the driving rain, maybe
Run from the darkness in the night

Singing ha, ah la la la de day
Ah la la la de day
Ah la la de day

Sweet the sin
Bitter the taste in my mouth
I see seven towers
But I only see one way out
You got to cry without weeping
Talk without speaking
Scream without raising your voice
You know I took the poison
From the poison stream
Then I floated out of here

Singing…ha la la la de day
Ha la la la de day
Ha la la de day

She runs through the streets
With her eyes painted red
Under a black belly of cloud in the rain
In through a doorway she brings me
White gold and pearls stolen from the sea
She is raging
She is raging
And the storm blows up in her eyes
She will…

Suffer the needle chill
She’s running to stand…
Still

Red Hill Mining Town

From father to son
The blood runs thin
See faces frozen still
Against the wind

The seam is split
The coal face cracked
The lines are long
There’s no going back
Through hands of steel
And heart of stone
Our labour day
Has come and gone

Yeah you leave me holding on
In Red Hill Town
See lights go down
I’m… hanging on
You’re all that’s left to hold on to
I’m still waiting
I’m hanging on
You’re all that’s left to hold on to

The glass is cut
The bottle run dry
Our love runs cold
In the caverns of the night
We’re wounded by fear
Injured in doubt
I can lose myself
You I can’t live without

Yeah you keep me holding on
In Red Hill Town
See the lights go down on
I’m hanging on
You’re all that’s left to hold on to
I’m still waiting
Hanging on
All that’s left to hold on to
Hang to

We’ll scorch the earth
Set fire to the sky
We stoop so low to reach so high

A link is lost
The chain undone
We wait all day
For night to come
And it comes
Like a hunted child

I’m hanging on
You’re all that’s left to hold on to
I’m still waiting
I’m hanging on
You’re all that’s left to hold on to

Love… slowly stripped away
Love… has seen its better day

Hanging on
The lights go out on Red Hill
The lights go down on Red Hill
The lights go down on Red Hill Town
The lights go down on Red Hill

In God's Country

Yeah
Desert sky
Dream beneath a desert sky
The rivers run but soon run dry
We need new dreams tonight

Desert rose
Dreamed I saw a desert rose
Dress torn in ribbons and in bows
Like a siren she calls to me

Sleep comes like a drug
In God’s Country
Sad eyes, crooked crosses
In God’s Country

Set me alight
We’ll punch a hole right through the night
Everyday the dreamers die
See what’s on the other side

She is liberty
And she comes to rescue me
Hope, faith, and vanity
The greatest gift is gold

Sleep comes like a drug
In God’s Country
Sad eyes, crooked crosses
In God’s Country

Naked flame
She stands with a naked flame
I stand with the sons of Cain
Burned by the fire of love
Burned by the fire of love

Trip Through Your Wires

In the distance
She saw me coming ‘round
I was calling out
I was calling out

Still shaking
Still in pain
You put me back together again
I was cold and you clothed me honey
I was down and you lifted me honey

Angel
Angel or devil
I was thirsty
And you wet my lips

You, I’m waiting for you
You, you set my desire
I trip through your wires

I was broken, bent out of shape
I was naked in the clothes you made
Lips were dry, throat like rust
You gave me shelter from the heat and the dust
No more water in the well
No more water, water

Angel
Angel or devil
I was thirsty
And you wet my lips

You, I’m waiting for you
You, you set my desire
I trip through your wires

All I need… all I need
All I need… all I need
All I need… all I need
All I need is… is…

Thunder, thunder on the mountain
There’s a rain cloud in the desert sky
In the distance she saw me coming ‘round
I was calling out
I was calling out

One Tree Hill

We turn away to face the cold, enduring chill
As the day begs the night for mercy love
The sun so bright it leaves no shadows
Only scars carved into stone
On the face of earth
The moon is up and over One Tree Hill
We see the sun go down in your eyes

You run like river, oh like a sea
You run like a river runs to the sea

And in the world a heart of darkness
A fire zone
Where poets speak their heart
Then bleed for it
Jara sang, his song a weapon
In the hands of love
Though his blood still cries
From the ground

It runs like a river runs to the sea
It runs like a river to the sea

I don’t believe in painted roses
Or bleeding hearts
While bullets rape the night of the merciful
I’ll see you again
When the stars fall from the sky
And the moon has turned red
Over One Tree Hill

We run like a river
Run to the sea
We run like a river to the sea
And when it’s raining
Raining hard
That’s when the rain will
Break my heart

Raining, raining in the heart
Raining in your heart
Raining, raining to your…
Raining, raining, raining
Raining to your…
Raining, woo hoo
To the sea

Oh great ocean
Oh great sea
Run to the ocean
Run to the sea

Exit

You know he got the cure
You know he went astray
He used to stay awake
To drive the dreams he had away
He wanted to believe
In the hands of love

His head it felt heavy
As he cut across the land
A dog started crying
Like a broken hearted man
At the howling wind
At the howling wind

He went deeper into black
Deeper into white
Could see the stars shining
Like nails in the night
He felt the healing
Healing, healing
Healing hands of love
Like the stars shiny shiny
From above

Hand in the pocket
Finger on the steel
The pistol weighed heavy
And his heart he could feel
Was beating, beating
Beating, beating oh my love
Oh my love, oh my love
Oh my love

My love

So the hands that build
Can also pull down
The hands of love

Mothers Of The Disappeared

Midnight, our sons and daughters
Were cut down, taken from us
Hear their heartbeat
We hear their heartbeat

In the wind we hear their laughter
In the rain we see their tears
Hear their heartbeat
We hear their heartbeat

Night hangs like a prisoner
Stretched over black and blue
Hear their heartbeat
We hear their heartbeat

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

She is the avalanche
And she is the thunder
She is the waves and
She pulls me under

I love you cause I need to
Not because I need you
I love you cause I understand
That God had given me your hand
It holds me in a tiny fist
And still I need your kiss
Hold on to love, hold…
See the sunlight in her soul
See the sunlight in her soul, yeah

(That was fun)

Walk To The Water

"With Or Without You" B-Side

She said it wasn’t cold
She left her coat at home that day
She wore canvas shoes
White canvas shoes
Around her neck
She wore a silver necklace
‘It was given to me by my father’ she said
‘It was given to me’

She took the back way home
Past the lights at Summerhill
Turn left on to the north strand
And on, on towards the sea
He said he was an artist
But he really painted billboards
In large capital letters
In large capital letters
He was telling jokes
But nobody else would listen to him

I saw you that day
Your lips were cherry red
Your legs were crossed, your arms wide open
Your hair was coloured gold
And like a field of corn
You were blown by the wind
You were blown by the wind

Walk, walk, walk to the water
Walk with me awhile
Walk, walk, walk to the roadside
Walk me in a light

A room in the Royal hotel
With sea facing views
A man with a suitcase
Full of things he doesn’t need
I’m looking through your window
I’m walking through your doorway
I’m on the outside
Let me in
Let me love you
Let me love you
Let me

Walk, walk, walk to the water
Walk with me
Walk, walk, walk to the roadside
Walk with me a while 

Spanish Eyes

"I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" B-Side

Wey hey hey, baby hang on
Wey hey hey, baby hang on
Empty heart, beat tight as a drum
Said empty love, she’d shine like a song
Wey hey hey, baby hang on
(To anything)

Our love shines like rain
In those spanish eyes
Spanish eyes

Wey hey hey, here she comes
She comes in colors
You know she gonna turn the daylight on
‘Cos I love the way you talk to me
And I love the way you walk on me
And I need you more
More, than you need me, yeah

Our love shines like rain
In those spanish eyes
Spanish eyes
I’d cross the world for green and gold
But it’s those Spanish eyes
That get me home
Oh, home again

Wey hey hey, baby hang on
Wey hey hey, you know that uh
The night is young
Dazzled by light, that shine in your eyes
I’m standing in the shadows
And wait for the night
Forever in fever, forever in heat
You pick me up to put me out on the street
Wey hey hey, baby hang on, hang on
Wey hey hey, uh huh, baby hang on, hang on
‘Cos I love the way you talk to me
And I love the way you’re mean to me
And I need you…

Deep In The Heart

"I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" B-Side

Angel, everything gonna be alright
Angel, everything gonna work out tonight
Thirteen years old, sweet as a rose
Every petal of her paper thin
Love will make you blind
Creep up from behind
Get you jumping out of your skin
Angel 
I sink or swim

Deep in the heart
Deep in the heart of this place
Deep in the heart
Deep in the heart of this place

Doors closed behind me now
Windows sealed to shut out the light
Green as the leaves
And the cure of the nettle sting
Do your work, It’ll work out right

Deep in the heart
Deep in the heart of this place
Deep in the heart
Deep in the heart of this place

Sit on cedar
I can still see her
You can’t return to the place you never left
Angel, make it work out tonight
Angel, I won’t be home tonight

Doors closed behind me now
Windows sealed they shut out the light
Green as the leaves
And the cure of the nettle sting
I do my work 
And you work out right

Deep in the heart of this place
Deep in the heart
Deep in the heart of this place
Deep in the heart
Deep in the heart of this place 

Silver And Gold

"Where The Streets Have No Name" B-Side

In the shithouse a shotgun
Praying hands hold me down
If only the hunter was hunted
In this…
Tincan town
Tincan town

No stars in the black night
Looks like the sky fall down, yeah
No sun in the daylight
Looks like it…
Chained to the ground
Chained to the ground

The warden says
The exit is sold
If you want a way out…
Silver and gold
Silver and gold

Broken back to the ceiling
Broken nose to the floor
I scream at the silence it’s crawling
Crawls under the door
There’s a rope around my neck
And there’s a trigger in your gun
Jesus, I say something
I am someone
I am someone

Captains and kings
In the ships hold
They came to collect…
Silver and gold
Silver and gold

See them coming and a going
See them captains and the kings
See them navy blue uniforms
See them bright and shiney things
Bright and shiney things

The temperature is a rising
The fever white hot
Mister I ain’t got nothing
But it’s more than you’ve got
Chains no longer bind me
Not the shackles at my feet
Outside are the prisoners
Inside the free
Set them free
Set them free

A prize fighter in a corner is told 
Hit where it hurts
For silver and gold
For silver and gold
