M is for Mysterious Ways

My favorite U2 song that begins with M is Mysterious Ways. I have always liked Mysterious Ways. It is not one of my favorite U2 songs, not even one of my favorites off Achtung Baby, but it is my favorite M U2 song. It is another U2 song that I fell in love after I heard it live. Actually I didn’t really start loving Mysterious Ways until hearing on the Elevation tour and then again last summer on the 360 tour. Just the way Bono shouts/grunts in the beginning – it really gets me going. It is such a fun/dancy song. And then of course on the final leg of 360, Larry and his drum kit turned around and faced behind the stage where I was for Mysterious Ways.

Johnny, take a walk with your sister the moon
Let her pale light in, to fill up your room.
You’ve been living underground, eating from a can
You’ve been running away from what you don’t understand.
She’s slippy, you’re sliding down.
She’ll be there when you hit the ground.
It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright.
She moves in mysterious ways.
It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright.
She moves in mysterious ways, oh.
Johnny, take a dive with your sister in the rain
Let her talk about the things you can’t explain.
To touch is to heal, to hurt is to steal.
If you want to kiss the sky, better learn how to kneel
On your knees, boy!
She’s the wave, she turns the tide
She sees the man inside the child.
It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright.
She moves in mysterious ways.
It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright.
She moves in mysterious ways, yeah, oh, ah.
Lift my days, light up my nights, oh.
One day you’ll look back, and you’ll see
Where you were held now by this love.
While you could stand there,
You could move on this moment
Follow this feeling.
It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright.
She moves in mysterious ways.
It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright.
She moves in mysterious ways.
Move you, spirits move you
Move, spirits ‘its move you, oh yeah.
Does it move you?
She moves with it.
Lift my days, and light up my nights, oh.
