11 O’Clock Tick Tock*
Orpheum Theater
Boston, Massachusetts, USA
1983-05-06

[Tick Tock]

It’s cold outside
It gets so hot in here
And the boys and girls collide
To the music in my ear

Hear the children crying / Oh-oh
And I know it’s time to go / Oh-oh
I hear the children crying / Oh-oh
Take me home...ah / Oh-oh

A painted face
And I know we haven’t long
We thought that we had the answers
It was the questions we had wrong

Hear the children crying / Oh-oh
And I know it’s time to go / Oh-oh
I hear the children crying / Oh-oh
Take me home / Oh-oh

Same song, sad song
Same song, [same…save some man]

[Hold on
Hold on tightly
Hold on
Hold on]

La-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
La-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
La-la-la

La-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
La-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
La-la-la

Same song, sad song
Same song, [sad…
Same...same...ho...]
Same...oh...uh
[Celebrate]
[Quit it]

[Shh]

Call out your name
Call out insane
Call out your name
Call out, you better call out
Call...call...call out
Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

* The lyrics in brackets do not appear in the UABRS album version.
This includes the Drowning Man snippet, 'Hold on / hold on tightly' which for some reason was cut, though it was left intact in the Tick Tock version from Red Rocks DVD.
The other words edited out are Bono improvising at the same spots in the song he normally did, but possibly he decided they were not appropriate on an album track.
The album audio mix is also quite different from the radio mix streaming at WV. On the album, Edge's opening riffs always sounded to me like he skipped a beat or the recording started a second late. In fact neither is true.  It's just that the opening notes are so low in the album mix. On the radio mix they are clearly audible.
At the end of the song Edge lets out a stream of nifty harmonics which are captured nice and clear on the radio mix but muffled on the album. Bono's tambourine at the end of the song also comes out perfectly, but is inaudible on the album mix. So even if no words had been edited out, these 2 versions of 11 O'Clock Tick Tock would still sound quite different from each other.

I Will Follow
Orpheum Theater
Boston, Massachusetts, USA
1983-05-06

Ladies and gentlemen
I Will Follow

I was on the outside
When you say, you say you needed me
I was looking at myself
I was blind, could not see, yeah

Oh a boy tries hard to be a man
His mother takes him by his hand
If he stops to think, he starts to cry
Oh why?

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

I was on the inside
When they pulled the four walls down
I was looking through the window
I was lost, I am 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

Your eyes make a circle
I see you when I go in there
But it’s your eyes
But it’s your eyes
But it’s your eyes
Your... your eyes
Oh…

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… follow

Thank you
God bless you, goodnight

….

Somebody, somebody outside in the recording van
Cos we’re recording tonight
Says he can’t hear the music because of you people

40
Orpheum Theater
Boston, Massachusetts, USA
1983-05-06

God bless you
40

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

I will sing
Sing a new song
I will sing
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?

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

I will sing
Sing a new song
I will sing
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?

Goodnight
