I need your help!!!!! @ 02:33 pm

Hi! I need help from people in this community. I have a speech due next week for my public speaking class. We're supposed to pick an excerpt or something from a poem, song, piece of literature, etc. I really want to talk about how I love music and include U2 lyrics. I love so many songs, but I can't find one that sums up me as a person. Like something people will like even if they have no idea who U2 are (if that's possible)...

Basically, does anyone have any suggestions? What's a couple of lyrics from a U2 song that you would use to describe yourself? And lyrics that can stand on their own, without me having to read the whole song.

Thanks to anyone who can help! I really appreciate tips from everyone! :)

Not knowing anything about ya, it'd be kinda tough to describe you in lyrics. ;)

I've always felt the lyrics to "Stuck In A Moment You Can't Get Out Of" and "The Ground Beneath Her Feet" describe me and my life quite accurately in some respects, I guess it's all about finding a song you can really relate to because then it's easier to talk about it and what it means to you. :)

Yeah, but I'm trying to find lyrics that sort of everyone can relate to. Like words that are meaningful to everyone.

People are really helpful on here, thanks!

I don't know about you...

...but personally, "I want to tear down the walls that hold me inside. I want to reach out and touch the flame where the streets have no name." =)

"what you thought was freedom just was greed" from "Gone". Well, for me at least.

You got to cry without weeping
Talk without speaking
Scream without raising your voice
You know I took the poison...

It's from "Running To Stand Still"
My favourite. Definitely the best.

I think you may be the winner! I LOVE those lyrics...see, I knew I needed to ask people on here so they could remind me of some of the awesome ones.

Thank you! :)

It's not why you're running
It's where you're going
It's not what you're dreaming
But what you're gonna do

It's not where you're born
It's where you belong
It's not how weak
But what will make you strong


This is my personal fave.

the lyrics I think of to describe me of U2 are

"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"
