Stand By Me
5-16-87
Brendan Byrne

When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon
Is the only light we'll see
Yeah!

No, I won't be afraid
No, I won't shed a tear
Just as long as you stand
Stand by me
(Here we go)

And darling, darling
Stand by me
Oh, now, now, now
Stand by me
Won't you stand
Won't you stand
Stand by me

And darling, darling
Stand by me
Oh, now, now, now
Stand by me
Won't you stand
Won't you stand
Stand by me
The Edge

When the night has come
And the land is dark / Land is dark
And the moon / And the moon
Is the only light we'll see / Is the only light we'll see

No, I won't be afraid
No, I won't shed a tear
Just as long as you stand / Just as long as you stand
Stand by me / Stand by me

And darling, darling
Stand by me
Oh, now, now, now
Stand by me
Won't you stand
Won't you stand
Stand by me

If the sky that we look upon
Should crumble and fall
And the mountains should tremble in the sea
No, I won't be afraid
No, I won't shed a tear
Just as long as you stand
Stand by me

And darling, darling
Stand by me
Oh, now, now, now
Stand by me
Won't you stand
Won't you stand
Stand by me

Yeah, summer's here and they're dancing in the streets alright

5-16-87

Sleep, sleep tonight
And may your dreams be realized
If the thunder cloud passes rain
So let it rain, rain down on he

Hmm...
So let it be
Hmm...
So let it be

Sleep, sleep tonight
And may your dreams be realized
If the thunder cloud passes rain
So let it rain, let it rain, rain on he

The Unforgettable Fire
Brendan Byrne
5-16-87

Some fires you can't put out
This is The Unforgettabe Fire

Ice
Your only rivers run cold
These city lights
They shine of silver and gold
Dug from the night
Your eyes as black as coal

Walk on by
Walk on through
Walk 'til you run
And don't look back
For here I am

Carnival
The wheels fly and colours spin
Through alcohol
Red wine that punctures the skin
Face to face
In a dry and waterless place

Walk on by
Walk on through
So sad to besiege your love so head on
Stay in this time
Stay tonight in a lie
I'm only asking but I think you know

Come on take me away
Come on take me home
Come on take me away
We're home again

Home again Edge

(Tonight I can stay here forever)
(Tonight I can sleep forever)
(Tonight I can stay forever)
And if the mountain should crumble
Or disappear into the sea
Not a tear, no not I

Stay in this time
Stay tonight in a lie
I’m only asking but I think you know

Stay in this time
Stay tonight
Ever after this love inside
And if you save your love
Save it all
Well don't push me too far
Don't push me too far...tonight
Tonight, tonight

Bullet The Blue Sky
Brendan Byrne
5-16-87

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

Sky  / Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Sky /  Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
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
I see them burning crosses, see the flames higher and higher

Sky / Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Sky / Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Bullet the blue sky / Sky
Bullet the blue sky / Sky
Bullet the blue / Sky
Bullet the blue / Sky
Glory glory hallelujah

Yeah
So this guy comes up to me, see
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 'em down
One hundred… two hundred
And president Reagan comes up to me
With his buddy Oliver North comes up to me
And his other buddy Mr. Gorbacek comes up to me

And I can see those fighter planes
Across the mud huts where the children sleep
And through the valleys and the quiet city streets
We take the staircase to the first floor
We turn the key and slowly unlock the door
A man breathes into a saxophone
And through the walls we hear the city groan
Outside it's America
But tonight it's New Jersey
Yeah!

Yeah
So I took my buddy President Reagan
On a walk through New Jersey
I came across this big... concrete... building
Called, The Meadowlands
And I said to President Reagan
Here...we can blow the roof off
And we don't even need explosives
And this is my kind of America
This is my kind of America
When I go back to my hotel room
And I turn on the television
I'll still see those fighter planes
Pelting the women and children
Pelting the women and children
Who run...who run...
Into the arms... of America

Running To Stand Still
5-16-87
Brendan Byrne Arena

And so she woke up, woke up from where she was lying still
Said I gotta do something about where I’m going
Step on a steam train, step out of the driving rain
Maybe, run from the darkness in the night

Singing ha, ha-la-la-la-de-day
Ha-la-la-la-de-day, ha-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 gotta 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-yay
Ha–la-la-de-day-yay-hay-ayay-hay-ayay-hay-ee
Ooo-oo-hoo

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 a storm blows up in her eyes
She will suffer the needle chill
She’s running to stand… still

Mmm...

Sunday Bloody Sunday
5-16-87
Brendan Byrne Arena

Sunday Bloody Sunday

I can't believe the news today
I can't close my eyes, make it go away

How long, how long must we sing this song?
How long, how long?
Tonight, we can be as one
Tonight
Tonight, tonight

Broken bottles under children's feet
And bodies strewn across a dead end street
But I won't heed the battle call
Puts my back up
My back up against the wall

Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday

Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
Alright so

And this battle’s just begun
There’s many lost but tell me who has won?
The trench is dug within our hearts
And mothers, children, brothers, sisters torn apart

Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday

How long, how long must we sing this song?
How long, how long?
Tonight, we can be as one, tonight
Tonight, tonight
Tonight, tonight
Prove it!

After me, sing
No more, sing
No more
No more
No more
No more

Wipe your tears away
Wipe your tears away
Wipe your blood shot eyes / Sunday bloody Sunday
Wipe your tears away / Sunday bloody Sunday

Sunday bloody Sunday / Sunday bloody Sunday, shh
Sunday bloody Sunday / Sunday bloody Sunday
We're so sick of it
Sick of it

And it’s true we are immune
When fact is fiction, TV a reality, yeah
And today the millions cry
We eat and drink while tomorrow they die

The real battle yet begun / Sunday bloody Sunday
We’ll claim the victory that Jesus won, yeah / Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday

Thank you

For Belfast and Derry, just sing it

Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday

Exit
Brendan Byrne Arena
5-16-87

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
Woo
Woo

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

He went deeper into black
Deeper into white
He sees the stars shine
Like nails in the night
He felt the healing, healing
Healing hands of love
Like stars shining from above

His hand in his pocket
His finger on the steel
The pistol weighed heavy
His heart he could feel
Was beating, beating
Beating, beating, oh my love
My love, my love, my love

Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm
Unto this house we're born
Riders on the storm

So the hands that build
Can also pull down
Even the hands of love
Even the hands of love, oh

In God’s Country
5-16-87
Brendan Byrne Arena

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, yeah...

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

She is liberty
She comes to rescue me
Hope, faith, her vanity, yeah
With the greatest gift of gold

Sleep comes like a drug
In God's country
Sad eyes, crooked crosses
In God's country

Yeah...yeah...
Two-three-four!

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...

Trip Through Your Wires
5-16-86
Brendan Byrne Arena

This is Trip Through Your Wires

Woo

She says
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
Yep

Well...I'm getting a little better at this
I'm sure...anyone else at lot better at this?
You wanna play? You can play
You wanna play this?

He makes even me look good at playing the harmonica
What's your name? Hey what's your name, what?
What's your name, Bruce Springsteen? C'mon

I was broken, bent out of shape
I was naked in the clothes you made
Lips are dry, throat like rust
You give 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

(Yeah this snow)

All I need, all I need
All I need, all I need
All I need, all I need
All I need, yeah, yeah, yeah

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
Calling out!

Thank you

I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For
Brendan Byrne Arena
5-16-87

You know as...as we've...as we've traveled through
The United States we've ah, come across so many
Old American folk songs and gospel songs and discovered
The blues and...American rock'n'roll is so rich in ah, so rich
In ah history...you should not let the radio forget that
You know as well as. As well as discovering sp much
About blues music and gospel music also I think I can say
That I see the influence of Irish music in all that
The Irish came here for over 100 years
They've been coming here since the Great Famine
They've crossed the Atlantic ocean on boats and planes
Bringing with them old Irish folk songs which one day
Became old American folk songs
This is a gospel song, but it's a gospel song
With a restless spirit, and ah, if you feel for it you...
You can sing it too

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 a 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
Amen

I believe in the kingdom come
Then all the colors will bleed into one
Bleed into one
But, 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 believe 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
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
Yeah

Electric Co.
5-16-87
Brendan Byrne

Boy, stupid boy
Don’t sit at the table 'til you’re able to
Toy, broken toy
You shout and shout
You’re inside out

'Til you don’t know
Electric Co. / Electric Co.
'Til you don’t know / Electric Co.
Electric Co.

Red, running red
You play for real, toy could feel
Hole, in your head
You go in shock, you’re spoon-fed

'Til you don’t know
Electric Co, / Electric Co.
'Til you don’t know / Electric Co.
Electric Co.
Two-three-four

We've got a right-em to fight-em to party

Ssh...
You know that it would be unkind
You know that it would be untrue
If I were to say to you
C'mon baby light my fire
C'mon baby light my fire

Break on through to the other side
Break on through to the other side
Break on through to the other side
Break on through to the other side
Break on through to the other side
Break on through to the other side
Break on through to the other side
Break on through to the other side
Break on through to the other

If you don't know
Electric Co. / Electric Co.
But if you don’t know / Electric Co.
Electric Co.

Thank you

Thank you

New Year’s Day
5-16-87
Brendan Byrne Arena

New Year's Day

Oh

All is quiet on New Year's Day
A world in white gets underway
I want to be with ya be with ya night and day
Nothing changes on New Year's Day
On New Year’s Day

I will be with you again / I…I
I will be with you again / I…I

Under a blood-red sky
A crowd has gathered in black and white
Arms entwined, the chosen few
Newspaper says, says
Say it's true it’s true
We can break through
Though torn in two, we can be one

I, I will begin again / I…I
I, I will begin again / I…I
Begin again

I will be with you again
I will be with you again
I will be with you again / I…I
I will be with you again / I…I

Thank you

Springhill Mining Disaster
5-16-87
Brendan Byrne

In the town of Springhill, Nova Scotia
Down in the dark of a Cumberland mine
There's blood on the coal and the miners lie
In roads that never saw sun nor sky
Roads that never saw sun nor sky

In the town of Springhill you don't sleep easy
Often the earth will tremble and roll
When the earth is restless miners die
Bone and blood is the price of coal
Bone and blood is the price of coal

In the town of Springhill, Nova Scotia
Late in the year of ‘58
Well the rain still comes and the sun still shines
But it's dark as a grave in the Cumberland mine
It's dark as the grave in the Cumberland mine

Listen to the shouts of the black-faced miner
Listen to the call of the rescue team
We have no water, light, or bread
So we're living on songs and hope instead
Living on songs and hope instead

In the town of Springhill, Nova Scotia
Down in the dark of a Cumberland mine
There's blood on the coal and the miners lie
In roads that never saw sun nor sky
Roads that never saw sun nor sky

In the town of Springhill they don’t sleep easy
Often the earth will tremble and roll
Well the times will come and the times will go
Bone and blood are the price of coal
Bone and blood are the price of coal
Bone and blood is the price of coal

Gloria
5-16-87
Brendan Byrne Arena

When I try to sing this song, I
I try to stand up but I can't find my feet
I try, I try to speak up
But only in you I'm complete

Gloria in te domine
(Gloria) exultate
Gloria, Gloria
Oh my Lord, loosen my lips
Loosen ‘em

When I try to sing this song, I
I try to get in but I can't find the door
The door is open
You're standing there, you let me in

Gloria in te domine
Gloria exultate
Oh Lord, if I had anything
Anything at all
I'd, I'd give it to you
I, well I'd give it to you
To you
Give it to you
To you

Up, up, up, up, up, up, up
Go

Adam Clayton

The Edge
Fair play The Edge
Larry Mullen

Gloria, Gloria
Gloria, Gloria
Gloria in te domine
Gloria, Gloria

Gloria in te domine
Gloria, gloria
Gloria in te domine
Gloria, Gloria
