Z is for Zoo Station

My favorite U2 song that begins with Z is Zoo Station. It is off one of my favorite albums Achtung Baby, and is the very first song I ever heard U2 play in concert. Even today 20 years later when I listen to Zoo Station, it brings me back to the Zoo Tv tour – my very first U2 tour. Zoo Station has great lyrics. My favorite is “Time is a train, Makes the future the past. Leaves you standing in the station, Your face pressed up against the glass.”

I’m ready
Ready for the laughing gas
I’m ready
Ready for what’s next
Ready to duck
Ready to dive
Ready to say
I’m glad to be alive
I’m ready
Ready for the push
In the cool of the night
In the warmth of the breeze
I’ll be crawling around
On my hands and knees
She’s just down the line … Zoo Station
Got to make it on time … Zoo Station
I’m ready
Ready for the gridlock
I’m ready
To take it to the street
Ready for the shuffle
Ready for the deal
Ready to let go
Of the steering wheel
I’m ready
Ready for the crush
Alright, alright, alright, alright, alright
It’s alright … it’s alright … it’s alright … it’s alright
Hey baby … hey baby … hey baby … hey baby …
It’s alright
It’s alright
Time is a train
Makes the future the past
Leaves you standing in the station
Your face pressed up against the glass
I’m just down the line from your love … Zoo Station
Under the sign of your love … Zoo Station
I’m gonna be there … Zoo Station
Tracing the line … Zoo Station
I’m gonna make it on time … make it on time … Zoo Station
Just two stops down the line … Zoo Station
Just a stop down the line … Zoo Station
