Hello Hello!!

A request... @ 11:28 am

firieth_sidhe:
I'm currently feelin: cold cold

On the U2 site, the lyrics for Bad have the line "and so to find a way", but in other places, I've seen it as "and so to fade away". When I'm watching the R&H DVD, that second version almost seems more like what Bono's singing, but I'm not sure. I'm trying to finish up a background I'm making with the lyrics, and I'd like it to be correct. Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks. :)

I have always read and heard the line as "and so to fade away", so that's what I vote for. =)

I've actually heard a few concert records that change the line around. I think Bono just likes to fuck with us.

Having said that, I can't remember what the official recording lyrics are.

I've always thought it's fade away, but I agree with snowfall36: he likes to fuck with us. OR his memory is as bad as mine and he just says something that kind of sounds similar when he can't think of the right lyric.

Also, I love your icon :D

Yeah, well, it *is* his song, after all. ;>

My icon? Thanks. :) It's free for anybody to use, if you want to: http://community.livejournal.com/u2icons/282031.html#cutid1.

I believe it's fade away. At least I'd like to think that he's making a reference to Buddy Holly.

I've always heard it as "fade away." In fact, a few years ago I had an lj layout that was basically dedicated to that lyric... haha so I sure hope it's "fade away."

Either way, Bono definitely sings it as "fade away" in several concerts (e.g. live in Boston.)

Definitely fade away. Don't trust lyrics you see on U2.com, they're not in any way official. (Last time I checked, most of them were lifted directly from Interference.com!)

U2.com never get anything right. U2wanderer.org is probably the best for lyrics. atu2.com is also really good.

I dunno, U2wanderer is thorough, but often wildly inaccurate!

I've always heard "fade away". Also sometimes he'll sing "not fade away" near the end.

All right. "And so to fade away" it is, then. Thanks y'alls! I'll be posting the w/p and some icons over in u2icons pretty soon. :)
