S is for Summer Rain

My favorite U2 song that begins with S is Summer Rain. It is a b side off one of my favorite U2 albums All That You Can’t Leave Behind. I love Summer Rain for its lyrics. I can’t even pick out my favorite line because the entire song is perfectly written. It says exactly how I want to live, how I strive to live, how I hope I am living.

When you stop seeing beauty you start growing old
The lines on your face are a map to your soul
When you stop taking chances you’ll stay where you sit
You won’t live any longer but it’ll feel like it
I lost myself in the summer rain
I lost myself
I lost myself in the summer rain
In the summer rain
Tequila and orange, Jamaica and rum
At the moorea, honey on my tongue
In a small boat on a generous sea
You let me be your enemy
Tiny hand with a grip on the world
Holding our breath now, diving for pearls
I lost myself in the summer rain
I lost myself
I lost myself in the summer rain
Just as you find me always I will be
A little bit too free with myself
Just as you find me always I will be
A little bit too free with myself
I lost myself in the summer rain
I lost myself
Now there’s no one else in the summer rain
Raining down
Raining down
Rain
Raining down
Raining down
Just as you find me always I will be
A little bit too free with myself
Just as you find me always I will be
A little bit too free with myself
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
