U2 has such amazing lyrics. In fact, that is why I love them so much (that and Larry of course). As I started to list my favorites, I realized I was listing entire stanzas from about half of U2’s songs. So I went back and just listed my absolute favorites, and only one liners. Over the years, there are some U2 lyrics that stand out above the rest and have had special meaning to me. Here are my top ten favorite U2 lyrics:
Breathe / Get on Your Boots
I’ve found grace inside a sound, Let me in the sound!
I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For
But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for.
What you thought was freedom is just greed.
I love you cause I need to, not because I need you.
Walk to the Water
Your legs were crossed, your arms wide open.
Time is a train, makes the future the past.
Free at last, they took your life, they could not take your pride.
When I Look at the World
When your thoughts are too expensive to ever want to keep.
I can’t change the world, but I can change the world in me.
What you don’t have, you don’t need it now.
