U2 – Starring at the sun

U2 – Staring At The Sun

Pop

Summer stretching on the grass

Summer dresses pass

In the shade of a willow tree

Creeps a crawling over me

Over me and over you

Stuck together with God’s glue

It’s going to get stickier too

It’s been a long hot summer

Let’s get under cover

Don’t try too hard to think

Don’t think at all

I’m not the only one

Staring at the sun

Afraid of what you’d find

If you took a look inside

I’m not just deaf and dumb

Staring at the sun

Not the only one

Who’s happy to go blind

There’s an insect in your ear

If you scratch it won’t disappear

It’s going to itch and burn and sting

You want to see what the scratching brings

Waves that leave me out of reach

Breaking on your back like a beach

Will we ever live in peace

‘Cause those that can’t do

Often have to

And those that can’t do

Often have to preach

To the ones

Staring at the sun

Afraid of what you’ll find

If you took a look inside

Not just deaf and dumb

Staring at the sun

I’m not the only one

Who’d rather go blind

Intransigence is all around

Military still in town

Armour plated suits and ties

Daddy just won’t say goodbye

Referee won’t blow the whistle

God is good but will He listen

I’m nearly great

But there’s something missing

I left it in the duty free

But you never really belonged to me

You’re not the only one

Staring at the sun

Afraid of what you’d find

If you stepped back inside

I’m not sucking on my thumb

I’m staring at the sun

Not the only one

Who’s happy to go blind

    “…Afraid of what you’ll find
    If you took a look inside…”

    Muy cierto don Hernán.

    Y si se me permite una sugerencia y se me concede un deseo, me gustaría -como quien dice- escuchar…”Close to me” (The Cure).

    Interesante. Comunicar con palabras de otro no es evidente.

    Saludos.

    Best U2 song ever!! “Will we ever live in peace
    ‘Cause those that can’t do
    Often have to
    And those that can’t do
    Often have to preach”
