When Love Comes To Town
Point Depot
Dublin, Ireland
December 26, 1989

U2 with B.B. King and his band and singers

[Bono=Normal; BB King=Italics; Together=Bold]

Hey-yeah-yeah-yeah
Hey-yeah-yeah-yeah

Ladies and gentlemen, the Lord Mayor of Lovetown, Mr. B. B. King

I was a sailor, I was lost at sea
I was under the waves before love rescued me
A prizefighter I could turn on a thread, now
I stand accused of the things I’ve said

When love come to town I’m gonna jump that train
When love come to town I’m gonna catch that flame
Maybe I was wrong to ever let you down
But I did what I did before love came to town


I used to make love until the red sunset
I was making promises I was soon to forget
She was pale as the lace of a wedding gown
I left her standing before (love came to town)

I ran into a juke joint, I heard the guitar scream
Notes were turning blue, I fell into a dream
As B.B. played guitar, my life turned around
That was the day before (love came to town)

When love come to town I’m gonna jump that train
When love come to town I’m gonna catch that flame
Maybe I was wrong to ever let you down
But I did what I did before love came to town


I was there when they crucified my Lord
I held the scabbard when the soldier drew his sword
I rolled the dice when they pierced his side
I’ve seen love conquer the great divide


When love comes to town I’m gonna jump that train
When love comes to town I’m gonna catch that flame

Maybe I was wrong to ever let you down
But I did what I did before love came to town


B.B. King
Oh yes he is
The man invented the blues
But he also has a cure for the blues
B.B.…can

My cure for the blues tonight
I said my cure for the blues tonight
Is L…O…V…Love

When love comes to town I’m gonna jump that train
When love comes to town I’m gonna catch that flame

Maybe I was wrong to ever let you down
But I did what I did before love... came... to... town

Love Rescue Me
Point Depot
Dublin, Ireland
December 26, 1989

U2 with B.B. King, his band and singers

[Bono=Normal; B.B. King=Italics]

Just imagine, we get to be on tour with all of these
Seems ah, Samuel Beckett died on Friday…ah…
It’s kinda sad that he never made it home…in such a long time
But he dreamt of other roads in other lands, of another home
So I sing this for Sam

Love rescue me
Come forth and speak to me
Raise me up and don’t let me fall
No man is my enemy
My own hands imprison me
Love rescue me

Many strangers have I met
On the road to my regret
Many lost who seek to find themselves in me
Well they ask me to reveal
The very thoughts that they would conceal
Love rescue me

And the sun in the sky
Makes a shadow of you and I
Stretching out as the sun sinks in the sea
I’m here without a name
In the palace of my shame
Love rescue me

I’ve conquered my past
The future is here at last
I stand in the entrance of a new world I can see
Ruins to the right of me
Will soon lose sight of me
Love rescue me


Yeah, though I walk
In the valley of the shadow
Yeah, I will fear no evil
I have cursed thy / rod and staff
They no longer comfort me
Love rescue me


(Sing sha-la-la)

Sha-la-la-la, sha-la-la-la

[Singers]
Sha-la-la-la, sha-la-la-la
Sha-la-la-la, sha-la-la-la
Sha-la-la-la, sha-la-la-la...

Thank you very much for coming to see us play
Thanks for all the trouble you went to to get the tickets
We love you…thank you…good to be here

I said love
We’re on the mountain side of love
Love, oh my love is the key
Yeah I’m here, without a name
In the palace of my shame
Love rescue me

Rescue me
Rescue me
Rescue me
Yeah...
Rescue me
Rescue me
Oh, love the key
Yeah I’m here without a name
In the palace of my shame
Love…
Rescue…
Me

With Or Without You
Point Depot
Dublin, Ireland
December 26, 1989

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

Sleight of hand and a twist of fate
On a bed of nails she makes me wait
And I’ll 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, oh-oh
I can't live
With or without you
Yeah, you
Ah, 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 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, oh-oh-oh
I can't live, I can’t live
With or without you

Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Wo-oh-oh-oh, wo-oh-oh

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

Hoo...ooo-ooo-hoo-hoo
Hoo...ooo-ooo-hoo-hoo

Yeah, we’ll shine like stars in the silver light
We’ll shine like stars in the Christmas night
One heart, one hope
One love

With or without you
With or without you, oh-oh
I can’t live
With or without you
With or without you

Forty
Point Depot
Dublin, Ireland
December 26, 1989

I waited patiently on the Lord
He inclined and heard my cry
He lift me up out of the pit
Out of the miry clay

I will sin, sing a new song
I will sin, sing a new song

How long to sing this song
How long to sing this song
How long, how long, how long
How long… to sing this song

You set my feet upon a rock
You made my footsteps firm
Many will see
Many will see and hear

I will sin, sing a new song
I will sin, sing a new song
Sing it

How long to sing this song
How long must we sing this song
How long, how long, how long
How long… to sing this song

Thank you

How long

(How long to sing this song)...
