The Signs As U2 Lyrics


Aries: “And now the battles’ just begun,
There’s many lost but tell me who has won
The trench is dug within our hearts
And mothers, children, brothers, sisters torn apart!”
-Sunday Bloody Sunday

Taurus: “See the world in green and blue
See China right in front of you
See the canyons broken by cloud
See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out
See the Bedouin fires at night
See the oil fields at first light, and
See the bird with a leaf in her mouth
After the flood all the colours came out…”
-Beautiful Day 

Gemini: “Every sailor knows that the sea
Is a friend made enemy
And every shipwrecked soul knows what it is
To live without intimacy
I thought I heard the Captain’s voice
But it’s hard to listen while you preach
Like every breaking wave on the shore
This is as far as I could reach…”
-Every Breaking Wave

Cancer: “Every day I die again and again I’m reborn
Every day I have to find the courage
To walk out into the street
With arms out, got a love you can’t defeat
Neither down or out
There’s nothing you have that I need,
I can breathe, breathe now…”

Leo: “It’s no secret that a conscience can sometimes be a pest
It’s no secret ambition bites the nails of success
Every artist is a cannibal
Every poet is a thief
All kill their inspiration
And then sing about their grief.”
-The Fly

Virgo: “I’ll give you everything you want
Except the thing that you want
You are the first one of your kind
And you feel like no-one before
You steal right under my door
And I kneel ‘cause I want you some more
I want the lot of what you got
And I want nothing that you’re not
Everywhere you go you shout it
You don’t have to be shy about it…”
-Original of the Species

Libra: “I was running down the road
Fear was all I knew
I was looking for a soul that’s real, then I ran into you
And that cherry blossom tree
It was a gateway to the sun
And friendship, once it’s won, it’s one, it’s one…”
-Cedarwood Road

Scorpio: “You’re in my mind
All of the time
I know it’s not enough
Well if the skies can crack
There must be some way back
To love and only love…
Electrical Storm…
Electrical Storm…
Electrical Storm…
Baby, don’t cry…
-Electrical Storm

Sagittarius: “…We’re still building, then burning down love!
Burning down love!
And when I go there
I’ll go there with you
It’s all I can do
Our love turns to dust
Building, then blown by the wind
Blown by the wind…”
-Where the Streets Have No Name

Capricorn: “Sleep like a baby tonight
In your dreams, everything is alright
Tomorrow dawns like someone else’s suicide
You’re gonna sleep like a baby tonight…”
-Sleep Like a Baby Tonight

Aquarius: “The more you see, the less you know
The less you find out as you go
I knew much more then
Than I do now
Neon hearts, day glow eyes
A city lit by fireflies
They’re advertising in the skies
For people like us…”
-City of Blinding Lights

Pisces: “Your heart is on my sleeve,
Did you put it there with a magic marker?
For years I would believe
That the world
Couldn’t wash it away
We can’t fall any further if
We can’t feel Ordinary Love
And we cannot reach any higher 
If we can’t deal with Ordinary Love
-Ordinary Love
