skull smoke

How does he do it?

Time and time again, I'm struck by the ... artistry ... of Bono's lyrics. He writes using magic as his ink.

Still shaking, still in pain
You put me back together again
I was cold and you clothed me, honey
I was down and you lifted me, honey
...
Do you feel in me
Anything redeeming,
Any worthwhile feeling
Is love like a tightrope
Hanging from my ceiling
...
Through the storm we reach the shore
You give it all but I want more
...
I remember when we could sleep on stones
But now we lie together in whispers and moans
...
They're reading names out over the radio
All the folks the rest of us won't get to know
Sean and Julia - Gareth, Ann and Breda
Their lives are bigger than any big idea
...
And a woman needs a man
Like a fish needs a bicycle
...
When I was all messed up
And I heard opera in my head
Your love was a lightbulb
Hangin' over my bed
...
I was broken, bent out of shape
I was naked in the clothes you made



I think I can rest my case.
Ah, one could drown in this sort of music.

Ive been listening to 'where the stars go blue' alot over the past few days, I never found Andrea Corr that sexy before, but all of a sudden after dueting with bono, her voice just sounds so much sexier. weirrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrd, i think i love her.

I am currently very hung over, ive tried to get all the spelling and grammar right, did i do well? hope so.

anyway i must go now, in search of this irish vixen
