Song of the Day

For today's Song of the Day, in honor of my return to the Vertigo Tour (yaaay!), I've picked the "Song I hope against hope to hear"

I selected Walk On

I know they played it at least once before on the tour, but not at the shows I attended, so I'm hoping to hear Walk On this weekend, but I have the feeling I will not get it. And of course that's okay, but I can still hope I suppose :)

Walk On was a song that I liked on ATYCLB, but never really jumped out at me until I heared it live on the Elevation tour. It came to life for me, had a lot more meaning and feeling behind it, and was an extremely uplifting part of the nights for me. I didn't think much of it not being in the setlist on the first leg; when I heard One, Yahweh, and 40, I was satisfied, but I really missed that Walk On element. I think adding Walk On here with Yahweh and 40 would be amazing. I can't describe to you how I felt when they'd play it on Elevation, so I won't try. I will just say that this song is greatly missed, by me at least.

But it's only greatly missed if Bono can get the lyrics right! :) See you all next week.

And love is not the easy thing
The only baggage that you can bring
Love is not the easy thing
The only baggage you can bring
Is all that you can't leave behind...

And if the darkness is to keep us apart
And if the daylight feels like it's a long way off
And if your glass heart should crack
And for a second you turn back
Oh no, be strong

Oh, oh
Walk on, walk on
What you got, they can't steal it
No, they can't even feel it
Walk on, walk on
Stay safe tonight

You're packing a suitcase for a place none of us has been
A place that has to be believed, to be seen
You could have flown away
A singing bird in an open cage
Who will only fly, only fly, for freedom

Oh, oh
Walk on, walk on
What you got, they can't deny it
Can't sell it, or buy it
Walk on, walk on
You stay safe tonight

And I know it aches
And your heart, it breaks
You can only take so much

Walk on...
Walk on...

Hard to know what it is, if you never had one
I can't say where it is, but I know I'm going
That's where the hurt is...

And I know it aches
And your heart, it breaks
And you can only take so much

Walk on...

Leave it behind
You got to leave it behind
All that you fashion
All that you make
All that you build
All that you break
All that you measure
All that you feel

All this you can leave behind

All that you reason, (it's only time)
(Love is a feeling on my mind)
All that you sense
All that you scheme
All you dress-up
All that you've seen
All you create
All that you wreck
All that you hate...
