I'm currently feelin: curious curious

What are your favorite romantic/sweet lines from U2 songs?

I think my fave lines are:

"I have run
I have crawled
I have scaled these city walls
These city walls
Only to be with you"

That's one of my favourites too... melts my heart every time.

A few others that spring to mind --

"Slow down my beating heart / Slowly, slowly, love"

"Lay down, lay down / Lay your sweet lovely on the ground"

"And I miss you when you're not around"

"Oh, you look so beautiful tonight"

"Can you see the beauty inside of me? / What happened to the beauty I had inside of me?"

"I have held the hand of a devil / It was warm in the night"

"Watching your bright blue eyes in the freeze-frame / I've seen them so many times, I feel like I must be your best friend"

"I remember when we could sleep on stones / Now we lie together in whispers and moans"

"All I want is a picture of you / All I want is to get right next to you"

"You don't have to deny love / Hold me, thrill me, kiss me, kill me"

"Tonight, the moon has drawn its curtains / It's a private show, no-one else gonna know... I'm wanting"

"You love me too much / You always love me too much"

"Maybe I was dumb / But what I forgot to say, if you didn't know / Is never let me go"

"You steal right under my door / I kneel 'cos I want you some more"

"I'm hanging on / You're all that's left to hold on to"

"Darkness falls and she will take me by the hand / Take me to some twilight land"

"I'm on the outside, let me in / Let me love you"

"Take this mouth, so quick to criticise / Take this mouth, give it a kiss"

"how can I hurt when I'm holding you?"

"you're love was a lightbulb hanging over my bed"

"Eternally yours, always"

I find that every lyric in "Stay" pretty much qualifies for my favorite. :) Particularly...

"And if you look, you look through me
And when you talk, you talk at me
And when I touch you, you don't feel a thing"


"And if you listen I can't call
And if you jump, you just might fall
And if you shout, I'll only hear you"

Not all that great by themselves, but the mood of the song makes them 1000x better.

Um, but Stay is about a horribly messed-up situation. Don't get me wrong, it's a beautiful song and one of my favourites, but I guess I just can't think of it as being "romantic" when it includes something like "you say when he hits you you don't mind."

true, but the lyric accompaning it is "because when he hurts you, you feel alive." and i think that the two lyrics put together has a deeper meaning that abuse.

I was aiming more for the sweet, not the romantic. You bring up a good point, though.

The end of "All I Want Is You" when he repeatedly belts out those 5 words. I melt every single time.

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

"And the night has no end, and the day yet to begin, as the room spins around, I need your love"
Date:March 18th, 2005 10:09 am (UTC)
I think I have to go with: "We're one but we're not the same, we get to carry each other. One."

Mmm, yes.

"my love she throws me like a rubber ball..."
Date:March 18th, 2005 02:36 pm (UTC)
"You're in my mind all of the time
I know that's not enough
If the sky can crack there must be someway back
For love and only love"

from electrical storm,

and "We're free to fly the crimson sky
The sun won't melt our wings tonight.
Oh now, oh yeah, here she comes
Take me higher, take me higher
You take me higher, you take me higher."

from even better than the real thing.

and lastly, my favorite:
"Hold on, and hold on tightly.
Hold on, and don't let go of my love.
The storms will pass, it won't be long now.
This love will last, this love will last forever"

from drowning man (because that entire album is amazing)

slide away
But you tore a hole in space
Like a dark star, falls from grace
You burn across the sky
And I would find you wings to fly
And I would catch you
I would catch your fall
(maybe more poetic than lovelorn...)

so cruel
Her skin is pale like God's only dove
Screams like an angel for your love
Then she makes you watch her from above
And you need her like a drug
(bittersweet devotion...)

who's gonna ride your wild horses
Oh, the deeper I spin
Oh, the hunter will sin for your ivory skin
Took a drive in the dirty rain
To a place where the wind calls your name
Under the trees the river laughing at you and me
Hallelujah, heavens white rose
The doors you open
I just can't close
(helplessly adoring...)

oddly enough, though....these definitely aren't my favorite u2 love songs. i think the u2 love songs i love most tend to be the ones with not as great "love" lyrics - all i want is you, one, with or without you...that tend to be dark or sweeping or intense...it's more about the mood in those songs, i think.

Love, Love, LOVE that song!

-"You're all that's left to hold on to"
-"And you give yourself away" (As well as every other line from "With or Without You")
-"Your love is teaching me how, how to kneel!"
-"Take me higher!"
-"Gonna run to you, run to you, run to you, woman I will."
