Song Of The Day

Today's Selection is...

“Tryin‘ To Throw Your Arms Around The World” from Achtung Baby

This is one of the songs that actually made me a huge U2 fan, listening to a 30-second clip of it about a year ago. It’s still one of my favorites.

I love Edge’s background vocals in this song.

Yeah, I had a dream that I saw Dali
With a supermarket trolley
He was trying to throw his arms around a girl
And took an open-top beetle
Through the eye of a needle
He was tryin' to throw his arms around the world… (whooo!)

Six O'Clock in the morning
You're the last to hear the warning
You've been trying to throw your arms around the world
You've been falling off the sidewalk
Your lips move but you can't talk
(You've been) tryin' to throw your arms around the world

Gonna run to you, run to you, run to you
Be still
Gonna run to you, run to you, run to you
Woman I will

Sunrise like a nosebleed
Your head hurts and you can't breathe
You've been tryin' to throw you arms around the world
How far you gonna go
Before you lose your way back home
You've been trying to throw your arms around the world

Gonna run to you, run to you, run to you
Woman be still
I'm gonna run to you, run to you, run to you
Woman I will

Yeah, I had a dream that I saw Dali
With a supermarket trolley
He was trying to throw his arms around a girl
And took an open-top beetle
Through the eye of a needle
He was tryin' to throw his arms around the world... (whooo!)

I'm gonna run to you, run to you, run to you
Woman be still
I'm gonna run to you, run to you, run to you
Oh, woman I will

(Oh, and you just gotta s-, you just gotta make your faith sing...)

Nothin' much to say I guess
Just the same as all the rest
Been trying to throw your arms around the world
And a woman needs a man
Like a fish needs a bicycle
When you're tryin' to throw your arms around the world

I'm gonna run to you, run to you, run to you
I'm gonna run to you, run to you, run to you
I'm gonna run to you, run to you, run to you
Woman be still
Woman be still
Be still
Woman be still
Woman I will
