Song Of The Day

Today's Selection is...

“In A Little While” from All That You Can‘t Leave Behind.

This song has always been one of my favorites off of All That You Can’t Leave Behind. I first acquired the album before a very memorable trip to North Carolina, so I associate most of the album towards sights I saw there; leafy things, forests and such.

I love the very bluesy sound of this song; in the (very easy to play!) guitar part, and Bono‘s vocals. It’s almost as though the music carries the song more than the vocals do.

Some of my favorite parts of this song are when the music kicks up at “When the night takes a deep breath/ and the daylight has no air,” (love that whole phrase, actually…), the “Turn it oooooooon,” part., and Bono’s wailing “oh-HOOOOOOOOOO”.

That’s all. Love this song.

In a little while
Surely you'll be mine
In a little while I'll be there

In a little while
This hurt will hurt no more
I'll be home, love!

When the night takes a deep breath
And the daylight has no air
If I crawl, if I come crawling home
Will you be there?

In a little while
I won't be blown by every breeze
Friday night running
To Sunday on my knees

That girl, that girl
She's mine
And I've know her since

Since she was a little girl
With Spanish eyes
Oh, when I saw her
In a pram they pushed her by

My, how you've grown
Well it's been, yeah
It's been a little while

Slow down my beating heart
Man dreams one day to fly
A man takes a rocket ship into the skies
He lives on a star that's dying in the night
And follows in the trail
The scatter of light

Turn it on
Turn it on
You turn me on

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