Breathe
Wembley Stadium
London, England
2009-08-15
BBC Radio 2 Broadcast (2009-12-21)

16th of June, nine-oh-five, door bell rings
Man at the door says if I want to stay alive a bit longer
There’s a few things I need you to know
Three

Coming from a long line of traveling sales people on my mother’s side
I wouldn’t buy just anyone’s cockatoo
So why would I invite a complete stranger into my home?
Would you?

These days are better than that
These days are better than that

Every day I
Die again, and again I’m reborn
Every day I
Have to find the courage

To walk out into the streets
With your arms out, got a love you can’t defeat
Neither down or out
There’s nothing you have that I need
I can breathe
Breathe, I can breathe, love

16th of June, Chinese stocks are going up
And I’m coming down with some new Asian virus
Ju Ju man, Ju Ju man
Doc says you’re fine or dying, please

Nine-oh-nine, St. John Divine on the line
My pulse is high
But I’m running down the road like loose electricity
The band in my head plays a striptease

The roar that lies
On the other side of silence
The forest fire
That’s fear so deny it

Walk out into the streets
With your arms out
The people we meet
Will not be knocked down
There’s nothing you have that I need
I can breathe
Breathe, I can breathe, love

Go (Goal)?

(Above my silver star)?

We are people born of sound
The songs all in our eyes
Gonna wear them like a crown
Wo-oh-oh-oh

Walk out into a sunburst streets
Sing your heart out, sing your heart out
I found grace inside a sound
I found grace, it’s all that I found
I can breathe
Breathe, I can breathe, love
(That’s all heart)

?
Cambridge town, up from Camden, right out to Wembley station, yeah

Get On Your Boots
Wembley Stadium
London, England
2009-08-15
BBC Radio 2 Broadcast (2009-12-21)

The future (repeats)
The fu-fu, the fu-fu
The future needs a big kiss
Let me in the sound (repeats in background)
Da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da-da-da-da*----

(Woo)

The future needs a big kiss
Winds blow with a twist
Never seen a moon like this
Can you see it too?

Night is falling everywhere
Rockets at the fun fair
Satan loves a bomb scare
But he won’t scare you

Get on your boots
Get on your boots, yeah

You free me from a dark dream
Candy floss, ice cream
All our kids are screaming
But the ghosts aren’t real

Here’s where we gotta be
Love and community
Laughter is eternity
If joy is real

You don’t know how beautiful
You don’t know how beautiful you are
No, you don’t know how beautiful / You don’t know, you don’t get it, do you?
You don’t know / You don’t know
How beautiful you are

That’s someone’s stuff they’re blowing up
We’re into growing up
Women of the future
Hold the big revelations

I got a submarine
You’ve got gasoline
I don’t wanna talk
About wars between the nations

Get on your boots, no, not right now
Get on your boots, not right now
Get on your boots, Ow

You don’t know how beautiful
You don’t know how beautiful you are
No, you don’t know how beautiful / You don’t know, you don’t get it, do you?
You don’t know / You don’t know
How beautiful you are

I don’t wanna talk about wars / Get on your boots
Between the nations / Get on your boots
I don’t wanna talk about

Let me in the sound
Let me in the sound
Let me in the sound, sound
Let me in the sound, sound
Meet me in the sound

Let me in the sound
Let me in the sound
God I’m going down
I don’t wanna drown 
Meet me in the sound

Let me in the sound
Let me in the sound
In the sound, sound
In the sound
Meet me in the sound

Hey

Get on your boots
Get on your boots
Yeah-hey-hey
Get on your boots
Yeah-hey-hey
Get on your boots
Yeah-hey-hey
Get on your boots
Yeah-hey-hey
Get on your boots, yeah

Magnificent
Wembley Stadium
London, England
2009-08-15
BBC Radio 2 Broadcast (2009-12-21)

Charing Cross
Euston
Waterloo

Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh, uh-huh, uh, uh-huh
Oh-oh-oh

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

I was born
I was born to be with you 

In this space and time
After that
And ever after I haven't had a clue
Only to break rhyme
This foolishness
Could leave a heart black and blue


Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

Only love
Only love can
Leave such a mark

But only love
Only love can
Heal such a scar


I was born
I was born to sing for you 

I didn’t have a choice
But to lift you up
And sing whatever songs you wanted me to
I give you back my voice
From the womb
My first cry it was a joyful noise
Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

Only love
Only love can leave such a mark
But only love
Only love can heal such a scar


Justify till we die
You and I will magnify
Oh-oh-oh, the Magnificent

Magnificent
Oh, oh, oh
Oh…
Oh…

La-da-da-da
La-da-da-da-da-da-da

Only love
Only love can
Heal such a scar

But only love
Only love
Unites our hearts



Justify till we die
You and I will magnify
Oh-oh-oh, the Magnificent

Magnificent

Magnificent
Magnificent

Ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah

Until The End Of The World
Wembley Stadium
London, England
2009-08-15
BBC Radio 2 Broadcast (2009-12-21)

Mo-mo-mo-mo-mo-mo-mo-mo-mo-mo-mo-mo-mo-mo-mo-mo-money-ah
Going up
Pull me up

Haven't seen you in quite a while
I was down the hold just killing time
Last time we met it was a low-lit room
We were as close together as a bride and a groom

We broke the bread, we drank the wine
Everybody having a good time
Except you, you’re still talking
About the end of the world

I took the money, I spiked your drink
You miss too much these days if you stop to think
You led me on with those innocent eyes
You know I love the element of surprise

In the garden I was playing the tart
I kissed your lips and I broke your heart
You, you were acting
Like it’s the end of the world
Play

Love, love, love
Love, love
Love, love
Love, love, love
Love, ah

In my dream I was drowning my sorrows
My sorrows, they learned to swim
Surrounding me, going down on me
Spilling over the brim

Waves of regret, waves of joy
I reached out to the one I tried to destroy
You, you said you'd wait
'Till the end of the world

Care for a smoke (?)

Come on there, soul
?
?
All my heart
I’m coming down
I’m coming down

Ya-da-da-da, la-da-da-da
La-da-da-da, La-da-da-da
La-ya-da-da, da

Break on through
Break on through to the other side
Break on through to the other side
Heart
Heart
Heart
On my shoulders
Heart
Mother
I leave I’m fooling

**Thank you so much

So there’s no where else, really
No where else we’d rather be
Than here in, in London
In August on this Saturday night
City of a hundred villages
City of a thousand, a thousand countries, probably, native tongues
Thank you for giving us a chance to build this…madness**

I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For
Wembley Stadium
London, England
2009-08-15
BBC Radio 2 Broadcast (2009-12-21)

If you want it for the Olympic Games we’ll cut a deal for you when the tour is finished, alright, how’s that?
Just an aside

I have climbed the highest mountains
I have run through the fields
Only to be with you

I have run, I have crawled
I have scaled

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

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

?
Hold on
Turn it up, Willy

Look around, look around
(Straight to chorus)

I believe in the kingdom come
Then all the colors will bleed into one
Bleed into one
Yes, I'm still running

You broke the bonds, you loosed the chains
You carried the cross of 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 haven't found what I'm looking for
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for

*Thank you
Thank you…for sticking with us*


* These comments came after Stand By Me

City Of Blinding Lights
Wembley Stadium
London, England
2009-08-15
BBC Radio 2 Broadcast (2009-12-21)

Blessings

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, 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, I’m getting ready to leave the ground

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

What time is it in the world?
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
Oh you look so beautiful
Oh you look so beautiful tonight
In the city of blinding lights

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

Blessings
Not just for the ones who kneel
Luckily
Blessings
In the city of
City of blinding lights
City of blinding lights
London
That’s the city of blinding lights

Vertigo
Wembley Stadium
London, England
2009-08-15
BBC Radio 2 Broadcast (2009-12-21)

London
London
London calling
London calling
London calling

Unos, 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
We’re at a place called Vertigo
Dond' esta
It's everything I wish I didn't know
You give me something I can 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
Singing 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
You, give me something I can feel
Feel
 
Oh my soul
You should erase your heart
I’m on nitro
Your 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 hurt

Hello, hello
Hola
We’re 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, how
Your love is teaching me how, how
How to kneel
Kneel

(We saw)
Been a long time since I rock and rolled, ho yeah
One more soul rocking in a heart, ha-wa-wa-wa-wa

Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah
Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

I’ll Go Crazy If I Don’t Go Crazy Tonight
Wembley Stadium
London, England
2009-08-15
BBC Radio 2 Broadcast (2009-12-21)

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
I don’t wanna go to war
Please don’t knock to see my boy
C’mon, aha

Come on all ye faithful
Joyful and triumphant
C’mon, hey, hey

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
C’mon, c’mon now, sh-sh-sh-shake it up
?

She’s a rainbow and she loves the peaceful life
Knows I’ll go crazy if I don’t go crazy tonight

There’s a part of me in the chaos that’s quiet
And there’s a part of you that wants me to, riot!

Everybody needs to cry or needs to spit
Every sweet tooth needs just a little hit
Uh-huh-huh

Every beauty needs to go out with an idiot
How can you stand next to the truth and not see it
Oh love

It’s not a hill, it’s a mountain
As you start out the climb
Listen for me, I’ll be shouting
We’re gonna make it all the way to the light
But I know I’ll go crazy if I don’t go crazy tonight
Know I’ll go crazy if I don’t go crazy tonight

Everybody generation gets a chance to change the world
Pity the nation that won’t listen to you boys and girls
Cos the sweetest melody is the one we haven’t heard

Is it true that perfect love drives out all fear?
The right to be ridiculous is something I hold dear
Oh, but a change of heart comes slow

It’s not a hill, it’s a mountain
As you start out the climb
Listen for me, I’ll be shouting
We’re gonna make it all the way to the light
But I now I’ll go crazy if I don’t go crazy tonight, help me
I now I’ll go crazy if I don’t go crazy tonight

Tonight
Tonight
Will you sing for your sanity, London?

I know I’ll go crazy
Know I’ll go crazy
I know I’ll go crazy if I don’t go crazy
Know I’ll go crazy
Know I’ll go crazy
I know I’ll go crazy if I don’t go crazy
If I don’t go crazy tonight
Tonight

When 2 tribes go to war, boy now you’ve been caught, war
When 2 tribes go to war, boy, you can never
Funky Bob mad man
2 tribes go to war, boy, you can never

(Oh, a change of heart comes slow)
It’s not a hill, it’s a mountain
As you start out the climb
It’s not a hill, it’s a mountain
As you start out the climb
(Oh a change of heart, oh a change of heart)

Sunday Bloody Sunday
Wembley Stadium
London, England
2009-08-15
BBC Radio 2 Broadcast (2009-12-21)

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

Broken bottles under children’s feet
Bodies strewn across a dead end street
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

And this battle’s yet begun
There’s many lost, but tell me, who has won?
Trenches dug within our hearts
Brothers, children, sisters torn apart

Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday

How, how long must we sing this song?
How long, how long?

Tonight
Tonight
Tonight, tonight / Tonight
Tonight, tonight / Tonight

Get up, stand up
Stand up for your rights
Get up, stand up
Stand up for your rights

Wipe your tears away
Wipe your tears away
Wipe those bloodstained eyes / Sunday bloody Sunday
Wipe your tears away / Sunday bloody Sunday

Sunday bloody Sunday / Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday / Sunday bloody Sunday
Oh, make it with a hot dog

Shut your heart
With a (?) to his soul
Become my heart
Who took your heart?
Who’d say living in love
?
Someday…?
Little me, love my soul

Sunday bloody
Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday
Hmm

Ultraviolet
Wembley Stadium
London, England
2009-08-15
BBC Radio 2 Broadcast (2009-12-21)

Sometimes I feel like I don't know
Sometimes I feel like checking out
I wanna get it wrong
Can't always be strong
And love it won't be long

Oh sugar, don't you cry
Dear child, wipe the tears from your eye
You know I need you to be strong
And the day is dark as the night is long
I feel like trash, you make me feel clean
I'm in the black, can't see or be seen

Baby, baby, baby, light my way
Baby, baby, baby, light my way

You bury your treasure where it cannot be found
But your love is like a cipher, that’s being passed around
There is a silence that comes to a house, when no one can sleep
I guess it’s the price of the love and the price it ain’t cheap

Baby, baby, baby, light my way
Baby, baby, baby, light my way

Ultraviolet love
Ultraviolet love
Ultraviolet love

I remember when we could sleep on stones
Now we lie together in whispers and moans
When I was all messed up and I had opera in my head
Your love was a light bulb swinging over my bed

Baby, baby, baby, light my way
Baby, baby, baby, light my way, (hold my soul)

Ultraviolet love
Ultraviolet love
Ultraviolet love, (my soul)

Baby, baby, baby
Baby, baby, baby
Baby, baby, baby, light my way

Baby, baby, baby
Baby, baby, baby, light my way
Baby, baby, baby, light my way

With Or Without You
Wembley Stadium
London, England
2009-08-15
BBC Radio 2 Broadcast (2009-12-21)

See the stone set in your eyes
See the thorn twist in your side
I’ll wait for you
Sleight of hand and twist of fate
And on a bed of nails she makes me wait
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

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

My hands are tied
Body bruised
Got nothing to win
Nothing left to lose

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

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

Oh-oh-oh-oh…

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

Woo…
Woo…

Good night

Thank you

To the heart
Thank you
Thank you for coming out
Thank you for giving us a great life
Thank you to the U2 crew
For building our dream
Thank you to Paul McGuiness, Principal Management, Universal
*( )*Everyone who put this together
Wembley Stadium
Yes, sing it up

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

Good night, God bless you
Very special night, thank you
Beautiful city of London**

Thank you for this.  I was at the show on August 15th, and in my opinion, best show of the 14 that I saw.  There was an electricity in the air that night.  And for Magnificent, Bono stood above us on the ramp and sang the song directly to us.  I really connected with the songs that night, and can just remember it being such a positive vibe there in London town.  :-)
