U is for Unforgettable Fire, The

My favorite U2 song that begins with U is Unforgettable Fire. It is technically The Unforgettable Fire, but I used Trip Through Your Wires for ‘T’, so I’m using Unforgettable Fire for ‘U.’ I have always loved Unforgettable Fire. It was always in my top ten U2 songs, but I had never heard it live until 2009 on the 360 tour. I was SO excited to finally hear The Unforgettable Fire in concert, but unfortunately they changed it and cut out my favorite part – “Stay this time, stay tonight in a lie. I’m only asking, but I, I think you know. Come on take me away, come on take me away. Come on take me home, home again.” But it was really cool when Bono sang the first verse to us in Charlottesville.

 

Ice, your only rivers run cold.
These city lights, they shine as silver and gold.
Dug from the night, your eyes as black as coal.
Walk on by, walk on through.
Walk till you run and don’t look back
For here I am.
Carnival, the wheels fly and the colours spin through alcohol.
Red wine that punctures the skin.
Face to face in a dry and waterless place.
Walk on by, walk on through.
So sad to besiege your love oh hang on.
Stay this time, stay tonight in a lie.
I’m only asking, but I, I think you know.
Come on take me away, come on take me away
Come on take me home, home again.
And if the mountains should crumble
Or disappear into the sea
Not a tear, no not I.
Stay this time, stay tonight in a lie.
Ever after is a long time.
And if you save your love, save it all, save it all
Don’t push me too far, don’t push me too far.
Tonight, tonight.
