With the atu2.com forums shutting down . . . . .

For those who haven't seen the shut down notice, it can be seen here on their forums: http://forum.atu2.com/index.php/topic,32518.0.html (There is no news on whether this is permanent or temporary)
I hadn't logged-in to the atu2.com forum for a few weeks.  That may be the reason I was not aware of the shut down notice.  I tried logging-in with your link above . . . . . it didn't work.  I also tried with my normal Internet page and that didn't work either.  That's weird.  Oh well, no big deal to me.

I'll kick off the hellos.

My name is Aaron or AJ.  And I came up with the idea for this place back in 1995. We've been updating somewhere ever since. Stayed the longest at U2Wanderer.Org (15 years) before moving to U2Songs.Com, and yes the forum is still running at the old site.  I'm a live junkie, and have traveled from Istanbul to Honolulu on pilgrimages to see the band. Favorite album is No Line on the Horizon.  Yes.  No Line. Although my copy has had "Get On Your Boots" surgically removed and replaced with a different mix. When I'm not doing the U2 thing I'm listening to New Order, Arcade Fire, and collecting odds and ends from Star Wars which are stuffed in any hole that isn't filled with the already out of control U2 collection.

And for those wondering why this is in the Discography section? It's the most trafficked section on the forums.  Most of the discussions land here or down in the lyrics...

Wow! That's too bad, especially since the decision is motivated by negativity on the board. I, too, am grateful for how drama-free this forum is. I hope it stays that way.

With the atu2.com forums shutting down, we may have some new visitors around these parts.  We're a pretty laid back group and I'm sure you'll join me in welcoming any stragglers who find their way over here.  Maybe it's time we take a minute and reintroduce ourselves for anyone wandering in for the first time? 

And for those who are here, and who have stayed here over the years, thank you for not making any trouble - ever.  This has been one of the easiest going corners of the internet for me.  Love that it's relatively low maintenance. 

For those who haven't seen the shut down notice, it can be seen here on their forums: http://forum.atu2.com/index.php/topic,32518.0.html (There is no news on whether this is permanent or temporary)  The announcement is a couple of posts down.

slaneman . . . . . . thanks for taking the time to type all these lyrics.
I'm confused.  Are these live tracks available for purchase and download?

In Godís Country (Live from The Hard Rock Stadium, Miami, FL, 11th June 2017)

Welcome to side two of The Joshua Tree

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
Her dress torn in ribbons and in bows
Like a siren she called 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
To see what's on the other side

And she is liberty
She comes to rescue me
Hope, faith, her vanity
She thinks the only 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

Wo...
Wo...
Oh

Where The Streets Have No Name (Live from Papa Johnís Cardinal Stadium, Louisville, KY, 16th June 2017)

Maybe the dream is just telling us itís time to wake up
Thatís right
Awaken, the America of community and compassion
Who protest intolerance
The America of safety and sanctuary
Dr. King (tells us to wake up)

Oh

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

I wanna feel the sunlight on my face
I see the dust cloud disappear without a trace
Wanna take shelter from the hurricane
Where the streets have no name

Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
Still building, then burning down love
Burning down love
And when we go there, we go there with you
It's all we know how to do
 
The cityís a flood, our love turns to rust
We're beaten and blown by the wind, trampled in dust
I just saw 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
Still building then burning down love
Burning down love
And when we go there, we go there with you
It's all we know how to do

Love, love, love, only love
Love, love, love, there is no answer love

Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
Still building, then burning down love
Burning down love
And when we go there, we go there with you
Itís all we know how to do
