Get Out of Your Own Way (Live From Berlin, Nov. 13, 2018) (Digital U2.com)

Get out of your own way
Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh

Love hurts, now you’re the girl who's left with no words
Heart's a balloon but then it bursts
Doesn’t take a canon just a pin
Your skin’s no covering
And resistance, love has got to fight for its existence
The enemy has armies of assistants
The amorous, the glamorous
A kiss, a fist
Listen to this, oh

Get out of your own way
Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh
Get out of your own way
Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh

I can sing it to you all night all night / Oh-oh-oh
If I could I’d make it alright alright / Oh-oh-oh
Nothing‘s stopping you except what’s inside / Oh-oh-oh
I can help you but it’s your fight

Fight back, don’t take it lying down you’ve got to bite back
The face of liberty's starting to crack
She had a plan but then she took a smack in the mouth
And it all went south like
Freedom, the slaves are looking for someone to lead them
Master’s looking for someone to need him
The promised land is there for those who need it most and Lincoln’s ghost said

Get out of your own way
Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh
Get out of your own way
Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh

I can sing it to you all night all night / Oh-oh-oh
If I could I’d make it all right all right / Oh-oh-oh
Nothing‘s stopping you except what’s inside / Oh-oh-oh
I can help you but it’s your fight 

Get out of your own way
Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh
Get out of your own way
Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh
C'mon, C'mon

Get out of your own way / Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh
Get out of your own way / Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh
Get out of your own way

Blessed is Berlin for it rose from the smoke and ashes
Blessed are the Berliners 'cause they crept from the ruins
And just got on with their day
Blessed are the white taxis and the women who drive them
Blessed are the Weiss beer makers and the Weiss beer drinkers
Blessed are the birds in the zoo and the birds in the  ?
And blessed is the blue above the Europe we share
And may those yellow stars never fall upon our heads

Pride (In the Name of Love) (Live From Berlin, Nov. 13, 2018) (Digital U2.com)


One man come in the name of love
One man he come and go
One woman comes she to justify
One woman to overthrow

In the name of love
One more in the name of love
In the name of love
One more in the name of love

One child caught on a barbed wire fence
One mother she resist
One boy washed up on an empty beach
One boy never will be kissed

In the name of love
One more in the name of love
In the name of love
One more in the name of love, oh

Love

Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh
Dr. King
For Dr. King's dream
Oh-oh-oh-oh
A dream big enough to fit the whole world

50 years ago, April four
A shot rings out in the Memphis sky
Free at last, they took your life
They could not take your pride

In the name of love
One more in the name of love
In the name of love
One more in the name of love

Oh-oh-oh-oh…

In the name of love…?

Summer Of Love (Live From Berlin, Nov. 13, 2018) (Digital U2.com)


The winter doesn’t want you, it haunts you
Summer serenading’s a long way from this frozen place, your face
Our teacher, our preacher, it’s nature
And like flowers growing in a bomb crater
From nothing, a rose, it grows

I’ve been thinking ‘bout the West Coast
Not the one that everyone knows
We’re sick of living in the shadows
We’ve one more chance before the light goes
For a summer of love (summer of love)
Summer of love
Summer of love (summer of love)
Summer of love

Freezing, we’re leaving, believing
That all we need is ahead of us somewhere
In a summer to come
So we run

I’ve been thinking ‘bout the West Coast
Not the one that everyone knows
We’re sick of living in the shadows
We’ve one more chance before the light goes
For a summer of love (summer of love)
Summer of love
Summer of love (summer of love)
Summer of love
Oh, and when all is lost
When all is lost we find out what remains
Oh the same oceans crossed
For some it’s pleasure, for some it’s pain

I’ve been thinking ‘bout the West coast
Not the one that everyone knows
In the rubble of Aleppo
Flowers blooming in the shadows
Of the summer of love
Summer of love
Summer of love, love…

You're The Best Thing About Me (Live From Berlin, Nov. 13, 2018) (Digital U2.com)

Hello, darling
Hello, it's me again
I'm calling from the last night of the tour
It's amazing, yeah, people just came back
From all over the world they just came back
Crazy U2 fans

Sorry to be talking about our love in front of other people, you know
But I guess that's what happens when you fall in love with a showman
Funny, today, in the room in the hotel
I looked at my face in the mirror and I saw his face
I saw my father's face...I kinda got a fright
When I realized that he was a showman, too
And I'd watched him putting on and off his makeup as a child
And I know he loved you
And now I finally know and understand that he loved me
Thanks for sticking with me
I love you


When you look so good
The pain in your face doesn’t show
When you look so good
Baby you don’t even know

When the world is ours
But the world is not your kind of thing
Full of shooting stars
Brighter as they’re vanishing

Oh you’ve seen enough
To know it’s children who teach
You’re still free enough
To wake up on a bed or a beach

You’re the best thing about me
The best thing ever happened a boy
You’re the best thing about me
I’m the kind of trouble that you enjoy

You’re the best thing about me
The best thing easy to destroy
You’re the best thing about me
Best thing

I've been crying out
How bad can a good time be
Shooting off my mouth
That’s another great thing about me

I have everything
But I feel like nothing at all
There’s no risky thing
For a man who’s determined to fall

Sing with us

You’re the best thing about me
The best thing ever happened a boy
You’re the best thing about me
I’m the kind of trouble that you enjoy

You’re the best thing about me
The best thing easy to destroy
If you’re the best thing about me
Why am I?
Why am I walking away? Walking away
Why am I walking away? Oh

I can see it all so clearly
I can see what you can’t see
I can see you love her loudly
When she needs you quietly

You’re the best thing about me
The best thing easy to destroy
If you’re the best thing about me
Why am I?
Why am I walking away? Walking away
Why am I walking away?

Why are you walking away?
Adam Clayton, first manager of U2
First to believe we could be here tonight
That's Larry Mullen Junior right there
He started this band, blame him
Never played better

Acrobat (Live from Berlin, Nov. 13, 2018) (Digital U2.com)

Don't believe what you hear
Don't believe what you see...ah

Don’t believe what you hear
Don’t believe what you see
If you just close your eyes
You can feel the enemy

When I first met you girl
You had fire in your soul
What happened to your face
Of melting snow
Now it looks like this

You can swallow
You can spit
You can throw it up
Or choke on it
And you can dream
So dream out loud
You know that your time is coming ‘round
Don’t let the bastards grind you down
Oh, oh

No, nothing makes sense
Nothing seems to fit
I know you’d hit out
If you only knew who to hit

I’d join the movement
If there was one I could believe in
Yeah, I’d break bread and wine
If there was a church I could receive in
‘Cause I need it now

To take the cup
Fill it up
Drink it slow
Can’t let you go
I must be an acrobat
To talk like this
And act like that
And you can dream
So dream out loud
But don’t let the bastards grind you down

Wo-wo, baby
What are we going to do now it’s all been said
No new ideas in the house and every book has been read

And I must be an acrobat
To talk like this
And act like that
And you can dream
So dream out loud
You can find
Your own way out
And you can build
I can will
And you can call
I can’t wait until
And you can stash
And you can seize
But in dreams begin
Responsibilities
And I can love
I can love
I know that our time is coming  ‘round
Don’t let the bastards grind you down
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Even Better Than The Real Thing (Live From Berlin, Nov. 13, 2018) (Digital U2.com)

“You're Paul from number 10. “
And you go, what? Paul? Paul is dead. I don't know who you're talking about.
I'm fuckin' Bono. Sir fuckin' Bono. The Edge, Larry, Lord Adam Clayton.
And we're the greatest rock 'n' roll band on the north side of Dublin.
Yeah, oh yeah


Give me one more chance
And you’ll be satisfied
Give me two more chances
You won’t be denied

Well my heart is where it’s always been
My head is somewhere in between
Give me one more chance
Let me be your lover tonight

You’re the real thing
Yeah, the real thing
You’re the real thing
Even better than the real thing
Child

Give me one last chance
And I’m gonna make you sing
Give me half a chance
To ride on the waves that you bring

Well you’re honey child to a swarm of bees
Gonna blow right through you like a breeze
Give me one last dance
We’ll slide down the surface of things

You’re the real thing
Yeah, the real thing
You’re the real thing
Even better than the real thing
Even better than the real thing
Child

Greatest sound in the world, still those voices in your head
Telling you you're nothing, telling you you're no one
Then you look around and you see Adam Clayton
Look at him
You see The Edge and he's someone
And you feel Larry Mullen Junior and you know
The truth is not far from here
But while we wait for it to arrive
Might we agree on our drug of choice
Alcohol? Chemicals? Has been
The Holy Spirit? I hope so
But tonight, for sure it is you, it is you

You take us higher
You take us higher
You take us higher
You take us higher

Even better than the real thing
Even better than the real thing
Even better than the real thing
Even better than the real thing
Child

All of this can be yours

Vertigo (Live From Berlin, Nov. 13, 2018) (Digital U2,com)


Oh yeah
Anyone here ready to walk some Spanish down the hall?
Wanna walk some Spanish down the hall?
Wanna walk some Spanish down the hall?

Uno, (dos, tres, catorce)

Lights go down it’s dark
The jungle is your head
Can’t rule your heart
A feeling so much stronger than
A thought your eyes are wide and
Though your soul, it can’t be bought
Your mind can wander

Hello, hello
Hola
At a place called Vertigo
Dond' esta
It's everything I wish I didn't know
You give me something I can feel
Feel

The night is full of holes
As bullets rip the sky
Of ink with gold
They sparkle as the boys play rock and roll
They know that they can't dance
At least they know

I can't stand the beats
I'm asking for the check
Girl with crimson nails
Has Jesus 'round her neck
Swinging to the music
Swinging to the music
Oh–oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh

Hello, hello
Hola
At a place called Vertigo
Dond' esta
It's everything I wish I didn't know
Except you, give me something I can feel

Shark baited
Miles of fun
Well this man isn't mad at all

All of this, all of this can be yours
All of this, all of this can be yours
All of this, all of this can be yours
Just give me what I want
And no one... gets...hurt

Hello, hello
Hola
At a place called Vertigo
Dond' esta
Lights go down and all I know
You give me something
I can feel your love teaching me how
Your love is teaching me how...
How to kneel, uh
How to kneel

Yeah, yeah, yeah yeah yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

Jean Genie lives on his back
Jean Genie don't look back
Outrageous screams and she bawls
Jean genie let yourself go...home

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

All of this can be yours

Elevation (Live From Berlin, Nov. 13, 2018) (Digital U2.com)


Are you ready to get elevated?
Loved and hated?
Infatuated? Infuriated?
Are you ready to get high?

Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh

High, higher than the sun
You shoot me from a gun
I need you to elevate me here
From the corner of your lips
As the orbit of your hips, eclipse
You elevate my soul

Got no self-control
Digging like a mole now
Going down, excavation
I and I in the sky
You make me feel like I could fly
So high, elevation

Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh

A star, you look like a cigar
Strung out like a guitar
Maybe you can educate my mind
Explain all these controls
Can’t sing but I got soul
The goal is elevation

A mole digging in a hole
Digging up my soul now
Going down, excavation
I and I in the sky
You make me feel like I could fly
So high, elevation

Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh

Berlin

Love, lift us up out of these blues
Won’t you tell us something true
We believe in you
(Yes we do)

A mole digging in a hole
Digging up my soul now
Going down, excavation
I and I in the sky
You make me feel like I could fly
So high, elevation

Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh

Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses (Live From Berlin, Nov. 13, 2018) (Digital U2. com)

You’re dangerous ‘cause you’re honest
You’re dangerous, 'cause you don’t know what you want
Well you left my heart empty as a vacant lot
For any spirit to haunt

Hey hey sha la la
Hey hey

You’re an accident waiting to happen
You’re a piece of glass left there on the beach
Well you tell me things I know you’re not supposed to
Then you leave me just out of reach

Hey hey sha la la
Hey hey sha la la

Who’s gonna ride your wild horses
Who’s gonna drown in your blue sea
Who’s gonna ride your wild horses
Who’s gonna fall at the foot of thee

Well you stole it ‘cause I needed the cash
And you killed it ‘cause I wanted revenge
Well you lied to me ‘cause I asked you to
Baby, can we still be friends?

Hey hey sha la la
Hey hey sha la la

Who’s gonna ride your wild horses
Who’s gonna drown in your blue sea
Who’s gonna ride your wild horses
Who’s gonna fall at the foot of thee

Oh, the deeper I spin
Oh, the hunter will sin for your ivory skin
We took a drive in the dirty rain
To a place where the wind calls your name
Under the trees the river laughing at you and me
Hallelujah, heaven's wide rows
The doors you open
I just can’t close

Don’t turn around, don’t turn around again
Don’t turn around, you're on the track
Don’t turn around, don’t turn around again
Don’t turn around, and don’t look back
Come on now love, don’t you look back

Who’s gonna ride your wild horses
Who’s gonna drown in your blue sea
Who’s gonna taste your salt water kisses
Who’s gonna take the place of me

Come on now, love
Wild horses, wild. The wild horses
(Bongolese to end)

Faraway, So Close! (Live From Berlin, Nov. 13, 2018) (Digital U2.com)

Green light, 7-Eleven
You stop in for a pack of cigarettes
You don't smoke, don't even want to
Hey now, check your change
Dressed up like a car crash
The wheels are turning but you're upside down

You say when he hits you, you don't mind
Because when he hurts you, you feel alive
Oh now, is that what it is

Red light, grey morning
You stumble out of a hole in the ground
A vampire or a victim
It depends on who's around
You used to stay in to watch the adverts
You could lip-sync with the talk shows

And if you look, you look through me
And if you talk, you talk at me
And when I touch you, you don't feel a thing

If I could stay then the night would give you up
If I could stay then the day would keep its trust
If I could stay then the night would be enough

Faraway, so close
Up with the static and the radio waves
Satellite television you can go anywhere
Miami, New Orleans, London, Belfast, and Berlin

And if you listen I can't call
And if you jump you just might fall
And if you shout I'll only hear you

If I could stay then the night would give you up
If I could stay then the day would keep its trust
If I could stay with the demons you drowned
Stay with the spirit I found
Stay and the night would be enough

Oh, oh, oh oh oh oh
Oh, oh, oh oh oh oh
Oh, oh, oh oh oh oh
Oh, oh, oh oh oh oh...

Three o'clock in the morning
It's quiet and there's no one around
Just the bang and the clatter as an angel runs to ground
Just the bang and the clatter as an angel hits the ground
