My favorite lyrics from U2’s Songs of Innocence

U2 are known for their beautiful lyrics and their latest Songs of Innocence is no exception. The whole album is brilliant, but there are some lines that just touch my soul and give me chills. Here are my favorites:

There’s no end to grief
That’s how I know
And why I need to know that there is no end to love
California (There is No End to Love)

If there is a light you can’t always see
And there is a world we can’t always be
If there is a dark that we shouldn’t doubt
And there is a light, don’t let it go out
Song for Someone

Free yourself, to be yourself if only you could see yourself
Iris (Hold Me Close)

Do you live here or is this a vacation?
Volacano

If I open my eyes,
You disappear
Raised by Wolves

If the door is open it isn’t theft
You can’t return to where you’ve never left
A HEART THAT IS BROKEN
IS A HEART THAT IS OPEN
Cedarwood Road

7 Comments on My favorite lyrics from U2’s Songs of Innocence

  1. I was young, not dumb
    Just wishing to be blinded
    By you, brand new
    And we were pilgrims on our way
    -The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone)-

    And every shipwrecked soul knows what it is
    to live without intimacy
    -Every Breaking Wave-

    I have some scars from where I’ve been
    You’ve got eyes that can see right through me
    -Song For Someone-

    You think it’s easier
    To give up on the trouble
    If the trouble is destroying you
    You think it’s easier
    But before you throw me a rope
    It was the one thing I could hold on to
    -The Troubles-

  2. “Iris says that I will be the death of her/it was not me.” CHILLS EVERY TIME!

    PS love the blog Deena ❤

    You took me by the hand
    I thought that I was leading you
    – Iris (Hold Me Close)

    I really love this.

  4. Hey Deena, my list was cut off for some reason. I typed it up again! : )

    That’s how I know
    And why I need to know that there is no end to love
    All I know and all I need to know is there is no end to love
    – California (There Is No End To Love)

    And I’m a long long way from your Hill of Calvary
    And I’m a long way from where I was and where I need to be
    If there is a light you can’t always see
    And there is a world we can’t always be
    If there is a kiss I stole from your mouth
    And there is a light, don’t let it go out
    – Song for Someone

    Dreams,
    It’s a dirty business, dreaming
    Where there is silence and not screaming
    Where there’s no daylight, there’s no healing…

    …Hope is where the door is
    When the church is where the war is
    Where no one can feel no one else’s pain
    – Sleep Like A Baby Tonight
