"Stay (Faraway, So Close!)" from Zooropa


I can't really put my finger on why I love this song so much. Maybe it "oh-oooooo" after the bridge that get's me. Or that some of the lyrics stand out so much and strike so true to so many people.
This part in particular:
You say when he hits you, you don't mind
Because when he hurts you, you feel alive.
Oh, is that what it is?

And this one of the most clever lines ever written. For me, anyways:
A vampire or a victim
It depends on who's around.

I love it oh so much.

Honorable mention to Larry for the ending. Air drumming is a must with the last note.

// Stay (Faraway, So Close!)

Green light, Seven Eleven,
You stop in for a pack of cigarettes.
You don't smoke, don't even want to.
Hey now, check your change.
Dressed up like a car crash
Your wheels are turnin' but you're upside down.
You say when he hits you, you don't mind
Because when he hurts you, you feel alive.
Oh, is that what it is?

Red lights, grey morning
You stumble out of a hole in the ground.
A vampire or a victim
It depends on who's around.
You used to stay in to watch the adverts
You could lip synch. to the talk shows.
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.

If I could stay, then the night would give you up.
Stay, and the day would keep its trust.
Stay, and the night would be enough.

Faraway, so close
Up with the static and the radio.
With satellite television
You can go anywhere:
Miami (holla back at ya, Bono!), New Orleans
London, Belfast and Berlin.

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.

If I could stay, then the night would give you up.
Stay, and the day would keep its trust.
Stay with the demons you drowned.
Stay with the spirit I found.
Stay, and the night would be enough.

Three o'clock in the morning
It's quiet, there's no one around,
Just the bang and the clatter
As an angel runs to ground.
Just the bang and the clatter
As an angel hits the ground.


Yay me! I bought the Complete u2 collection from iTunes. No more of this "only from the Best of cd" song stuff.

Edited to add:
According to People magazine, the Entourage episode featuring u2 will air on July 31st. It is interestingly titled "I Love You Too"
Hee!
It also said that it was Jeremy Piven (who plays Chase's agent, Ari), a longtime u2 fan, who convinced u2 to do it.
