Song Of The Day

Today's Selection is...

“Stuck In A Moment That You Can‘t Get Out Of” from All That You Can‘t Leave Behind.

What a great song. A few years ago, before I rediscovered for myself the amazing-ness that is U2, I would always complain about this song because of its frequent airplay. But when everyone at my local radio station forgot about U2, I found that I suddenly loved this song. It’s such an uplifting song. I also love the video, but only the European version. The American version is just… ugh.

Favourite lyrics:
I was unconscious, half asleep,
The water is warm till you discover how deep...
I wasn't jumping... for me it was a fall
It's a long way down to nothing at all

I'm not afraid of anything in this world
There's nothing you can throw at me that I haven't already heard
I'm just trying to find a decent melody
A song that I can sing in my own company

I never thought you were a fool
But darling, look at you
You gotta stand up straight, carry your own weight
These tears are going nowhere, baby

You've got to get yourself together
You've got stuck in a moment and now you can't get out of it
Don't say that later will be better now you're stuck in a moment
And you can't get out of it

I will not forsake, the colours that you bring
The nights you filled with fireworks
They, they left you with nothing
I am still enchanted by the light you brought to me
I listen through your ears, and through your eyes I can see

And you are such a fool
To worry like you do
I know it's tough, and you can never get enough
Of what you don't really need now... my oh my

You've got to get yourself together
You've got stuck in a moment and now you can't get out of it
Oh love look at you now
You've got yourself stuck in a moment and now you can't get out of it

I was unconscious, half asleep
The water is warm till you discover how deep...
I wasn't jumping... for me it was a fall
It's a long way down to nothing at all

You've got to get yourself together
You've got stuck in a moment and now you can't get out of it
Don't say that later will be better, now
You're stuck in a moment and you can't get out of it

And if the night runs over
And if the day won't last
And if our way should falter
Along the stony pass

And if the night runs over / And if, and if the night runs over
And if the day won't last /
And if the day won't last

And if our way should falter /
And if your way should falter
Along the stony pass
/ Along that stony pass

It's just a moment
This time will pass
