Today's Song of the Day selection is....



Slide Away



From the Michael Hutchence album released in 1999.



Technically not a "U2" song, I know, but one that I like and has been
stuck in my head, I suspect from the recent crowning of the new INXS
lead singer.  Bono was kind enough to help out his deceased friend
and finished these lyrics and then mixed in some vocals for the
song.  The fact that Hutchence's suicide was highly publicized and
we know a lot of details, combined with the knowledge of Bono's pain
over the loss of his friend, makes the vocals he laid down that much
more emotionally charged.  The song is actually pretty good, too
;)  It's worth taking note of, anyway. 






Bono appears in italics





Are you gonna wake again?


Are you gonna take it down?


Oh babe, I wanna deal it


Oh, make it alright.





Gimme some, my love


Away, away, away





I just want to slide away and come alive again


I just want to slide away and come alive again


I will see that love again and find a life again


I just want to slide away and come alive again

I wanted to let it go

Just couldn't let it go

I wanted to let it go

I just couldn't let you...



I would catch you (Just couldn't let
you go)

I'd catch you as you fall (Just couldn't let it go)

I would catch you (Just couldn't let it go)

I'd catch you if I heard your call (Just couldn't let
it..)



But you tore a hole in space

Like a dark star that falls from grace

You burn across the sky

And I would find you wings to fly

And I would catch you

And I would catch your fall



I just want to slide away and come alive
again

I just want to slide away and come alive again

I will see that love again and find a life again

I just want to slide away and come alive again



I just want to slide away and come alive
again / (Falling, falling oh let it)


I just want to slide away and come alive again / (Oh
let it... go)



I will see that love again and find a life again / (Oh
let it, go, oh let it)



I just want to slide away and come alive again. / (Oh
let it...)
