2006 Live From Milan
« on: September 26, 2008, 03:00:35 PM »
Vertigo
U2 18 Vertigo/05
Live from Milan

Larry Mullen Jr.
Adam Clayton now

Hello, hello
Ciao, Milano
Alright Edge
Uno, due, tre, catorce

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

Hello, hello
Hola
We’re at a place called Vertigo
Dond' esta
It's everything I wish I didn't know
Except you give me something I can feel
Feel
Alright

Is full of shame(?)
As bullets rip the drum
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-oh-oh-oh-oh

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

Checkmated
Hours of fun
This man is 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...
 
Hello, hello
Hola
We’re at a place called Vertigo
Dond' esta
Lights go down and all I know
Is that you give me something
I can feel your love teaching me how
Your love is teaching me how
How to kneel
Kneel

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

I Will Follow
U2 18 Vertigo/05
Live from Milan

I Will Follow

I was on the outside
When you say, you say you needed me
I was caught at a stoplight
I was blind and could not see, oh

A boy tries hard to be a man
His mother takes him by his hand
He stops to think
He’ll always wonder why

If you walk away, walk away
Walk away, walk away
I will follow
If you walk away, walk away
Walk away, walk away
I will follow

I was on the inside
When they pulled the four walls down
You looked under the rubble
I was lost, now I’m found

Walk away, walk away
Walk away, walk away
I will follow
If you walk away, walk away
Walk away, walk away
I will follow

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

Your eyes make a circle
I see you when I come in here
Your eyes, your eyes, you’re eyes, your, your eyes
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
All right

If you walk away, walk away
Walk away, walk away
I will follow
If you walk away, walk away
Walk away, walk away
I will follow

I will follow
I will follow
I will follow
I will
I will

Agape
You walk away
Agape

Elevation
U2 18 Vertigo/05
Live from Milan

Hold on
Ieri sera il primo appuntamento*
Last night it was the first date
Stasera facciamo l'amore
Tonight we’ll make love

Sexy people
Milano
Bono
Bono, sexy person

But I can’t dance
Irish people, they can’t dance
Teach me how to dance
It’s okay, be uncool

Oh-oh-oh

High, higher than the sun
You shoot me from a gun
I need you to elevate me here
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
It’s okay to flirt
It’s okay to flirt

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

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

Love, love, love
Lift me up out of these blues
I believe in you
And you… believe…in…love

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

(Up, up, up, all right)

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

*Thanks to iriden for the Italian!

I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For
U2 18 Vertigo/05
Live from Milan

So, we’re making a DVD here, tonight.
Thank you for being a part of the film, the little movie we’re making of tonight. Grazie mille.
You kinda invented the movies, though, didn’t you? Yeah.
They’re on the stained glass windows. They were the first movies.
Stories told through color projected by sunlight.
The Duomo just up the road, was like the first cinema in Italy.
Duh…I don’t know what I’m talking about here but, eh…excusez moi.
Anyway, eh…I can talk if I want to

I have climbed the highest mountains
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
Sing for us…

I have kissed honey lips
Felt the healing in her fingertip
Burning like a fire
I was burning inside her

I have spoke with tongue of angels
I have held the hand of the 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
Take us to the Duomo

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

You broke the bonds and you loosed the chains
Carried the cross, took my shame
Took the blame
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
I still…

All I Want Is You
U2 18 Vertigo/05
Live from Milan

You say you want
A diamond on a ring of gold
You say you want
Your story to remain untold

All the promises we make
From the cradle to the grave
When all I want is you

You say you'll give me
A highway with no one on it
Your treasure just to look upon it
All the riches in the land

You say you'll give me
Eyes in a moon of blindness
A river in  time of dryness
A harbor in the tempest

All the promises we make
From the cradle to the grave
When all I want is you
All I want is you

You say you want
A diamond on a ring of gold
Your story to remain untold
Your love not to grow cold

All the promises we break
From the cradle to the grave
When all I want is you
All I want is you
All I want is you

All I want is
All I want is
All I want is
All I want is
All I want is

You-hoo
All I want is you-hoo
All I want is

All I want is
All I wanted
All I wanted

City Of Blinding Lights
U2 18 Vertigo/05
Live from Milan

All I wanted
You-hoo

The more you see the less you know
The less you find out as you go
I knew much more then
Than I do now

Neon heart, day glow eyes
A city lit by fireflies
They’re advertising in the skies
For people like us

And I miss you when you’re not around
I’m getting ready to leave the ground

Oh you look so beautiful tonight
In the city of blinding lights

Don’t look before you laugh
Look ugly in a photograph
Flash bulbs, purple irises
The camera can’t see

I’ve seen you walk unafraid
I’ve seen you in the clothes you made
Can you see the beauty inside of me
What happened to the beauty I had inside of me

And I miss you when you’re not around
I’m getting ready to leave the ground

Oh you look so beautiful tonight
In the city of blinding lights

Time, time, time, time
Time won’t leave me as I am
Time won’t take the boy out of this man
Oh you look so beautiful tonight
Oh you look so beautiful tonight
Oh you look so beautiful tonight

The more you know the less you feel
Some pray for, others steal
Blessings not just for the ones who kneel
Luckily

Luckily

Luckily, blessings, all praises
Milano
We love Milano

Sometimes You Can’t Make It On Your Own
U2 18 Vertigo/05
Live from Milan

This next song's for my father, Bob
And he thought he was Italian
All he listened to was the opera
And his son grew up and wanted to live the opera

Tough
You think you’ve got the stuff
You’re telling me and anyone
You’re hard enough

Don’t have to put up a fight
You don’t have to always be right
Let me take some of the punches
For you tonight

Listen to me now
I need to let you know
You don’t have to go it alone

And it’s you when I look in the mirror
And it’s you when I don’t pick up the phone
Sometimes you can’t make it on your own

We fight
All the time
You and I, that’s alright
We’re the same soul

I don’t need
I don’t need to hear you say
That if we weren’t so alike
You’d like me a whole lot more

Listen to me now
I need to let you know
You don’t have to go it alone

And it’s you when I look in the mirror
And it’s you when I don’t pick up the phone
Sometimes you can’t make it on your own
Yeah, yeah, yeah

I know that we don’t talk
I'm sick of it all
But can you hear me when I sing
You’re the reason I sing
You’re the reason why the opera is in me

Well, hey-hey now
Still got to let you know
A house still don’t make a home
Don’t leave me here alone

And it’s you when I look in the mirror
And it’s you that makes it hard to let go

Sometimes you can’t make it on your own
Sometimes you can’t make it
Best you can do is to fake it
Sometimes you can’t make it on… your own

Vidi o mare quant’e bello
Spiri tantu sentimento
?
?
Guardo, guardo, cielo, cielo
?



Thanks to laura2312 for the Italian transcription and translation
She has some interesting comments.
"Those are not the right lyrics, but he gets pretty close to the target!
Then he goes mumbling, it's not properly words. Maybe at the end it goes guarda, guarda, cielo, cielo which is "I look, I look, the sea, the sea" but I wouldn't say that for sure."
The starting of the song (Torna A Suriento) (and the most famous part of it) is really those two lines:
"Guarda il mare com´e bello!
Spira tanto sentimento."
Translated,
literally:
"Look at the sea, how it's beautiful! It inspires a lot of feeling"
...this translation is awful, I have to admit it...
To give you the proper idea, the text is like if a person invites another to
look at the sea and says that that vision is very touching, so that
makes sensation rise inside yourself.
Yeah, that's what those lines tell.
Actually "Surriento" is the way people from Naples and surroundings call the city that gives the title to the song. Search on the Internet for "Sorrento", the proper Italian name of that town.
The song is written in an ancient Italian we no longer use, except maybe
the people from Naples when they use their regional dialect."

Miss Sarajevo
U2 18 Vertigo/05
Live from Milan

We’d like to dedicate this next song to those who lost their lives in London last week and who are maimed and injured today
And we would like to turn our song into a prayer
And the prayer is that we don’t become a monster in order to defeat a monster
That’s our prayer tonight

Is there a time for keeping your distance
A time to turn your eyes away
Is there a time for keeping your head down
For getting on with your day

Is there a time for kohl and lipstick
A time for cutting hair
Is there a time for high street shopping
To find the right clothes to wear

Here she comes, oh, oh
Heads turn around
Here she comes
To take her crown

Is there a time to run for cover
A time for kiss and tell
Is there a time for different colors
Different names you find so hard to spell

Is there a time for first communion
A time for synagogue
Is there a time to turn to Mecca
Beauty queen before God

Here she comes, oh, oh
Beauty plays the clown
Here she comes
Surreal in her crown

Dici che il fiume trova la via la mare (you say that the river finds its way to the sea)*
Che come il fiume giungerai a me (that like the river you will come to me)
Oltre i confini e le terre assetate (beyond the borders and the thirsty lands)
Dici che come il fiume (you say that like the river)
Come il fiume (like the river)
L'amore giungerà (love will come)
L'amore (love)
E non so più pregare (and I'm no longer able to pray)
E quell'amore non so più sperare (and I'm no longer able to hope in that love)
E quell'amore non so più aspettare (and I'm no longer able to wait for that love)

 
Is there a time for changing values
Is there a time to wear a blind
Is there a time for keeping your mouth shut
Is this the time for human rights

*Thanks to Iriden for the transcription and translation of the Italian verse.

Original Of The Species
U2 18 Vertigo/05
Live from Milan

Right, Original Of The Species

Baby slow down
The end is not as fun as the start
Please stay a child somewhere in your heart

I’ll give you everything that you want
Except the thing that you want
You are the first one of your kind

And you feel like no one before
You steal right under my door
I kneel ‘cos I want you some more
I want the lot of what you got
And I want nothing that you’re not

Everywhere you go you shout it
You don’t have to be shy about it, no

Some things you shouldn’t get too good at
Like smiling, crying and celebrity
Some people got way too much confidence baby, baby

Give you everything that you want
Except the thing that you want
You are the first ones of your kind

You feel like no one before
You steal right under my door
I kneel ‘cos I want you some more
I want the lot of what you got
And I want nothing that you’re not

Everywhere you go you shout it
You don’t have to be shy about it, no
Oh no
Oh no don’t be afraid

Didit didit didit didit didit didit didit didit
Didit didit didit didit didit didit didit
Sugar c'mon, show your soul
You’ve been keeping your love under control

Everywhere you go you shout it
You don’t have to be shy about it
Everywhere ya go you know
Behind you all my love

(And you) feel like no one before
You steal right under my door
I kneel ‘cos I want you some more
I want you some more
I want you some more
Oh no, oh no
Oh no-oh-oh

The beautiful Milano Ice Cream Strings
Thank you
Everything ok?
Two great, great, great nights
Thank you so much we will never, ever forget this


The 2 groups of 8 string players are not credited anywhere I could see in the booklet or on the disc. At first I thought they might actually be called “the Milano Ice Cream Strings”…but thanks to Iriden, I have learned that this group comes from the orchestra in Novara, a city near Milan.

With Or Without You
U2 18 Vertigo/05
Live from Milan

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 reached 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
Yeah you
Yeah you

And you give yourself away
You give yourself away
You give, you give
You give yourself away

My hands are tied
My body is bruised
You got me with
Nothing to win and
Nothing left to lose

And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give, you give
You give yourself away

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

Oh-oh-oh-oh
(Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

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

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

Buono sera, Milano
Oh-oh-oh-oh

Grazia mille
Mille grazia
