Original of the Species Lyrics - U2

Review The Song (6)



Baby slow down
The end is not as fun as the start
Please stay a child somewhere in your heart

I'll give you everything you want
Except the thing that you want
You are the first one of your kind

And you feel like no-one before
You steal right under my door
I kneel 'cause I want you some more
I want the lot of what you got
And I want nothing that you're not

Everywhere you go you shout it
You don't have to be shy about it

Some things you shouldn't get too good at
Like smiling, crying and celerity
Some people got way too much confidence baby..baby

I'll give you everything you want
Except the thing that you want
You are the first one of your kind

And you feel like no-one before
You steal right under my door
I kneel 'cause I want you some more
I want the lot of what you got
And I want nothing that you're not

Everywhere you go you shout it
You don't have to be shy about it, no....
Sugar come on, show your soul
You've been keeping your love under control

Everywhere you go you shout it
You don't have to be shy about it
Everywhere you go your song Bob Marley
on my mind


And you feel like no-one before
You steal right under my door
I kneel 'cause I want you some more
I want you some more, I want you some more...
Oh no.....

great. | Reviewer: Liz | 3/4/09

Of course U2 has a lot of good songs, but this one I really love.. most of these lyrics helps mme to cheer myself up.. and makes me think a lot about my own situations.. I agree with Kendra, it all comes down the way you interpret it.



For all their kids | Reviewer: MK | 11/2/07

If I'm not mistaken, the band recorded the video for this the same day I saw them in concert at MSG in New York, October 2005. Maybe off by a day either side...

But I recall him saying at the concert that the band recorded this for all their children, as I think three of them (except for Adam) have daughters. It very much has a bent toward addressing a daughter, rather than a son.

Having daughters of my own, this song rates as one of my favorites of their collection, and I agree with the songwriter himself - this is the best song on HTDAAB.



song that means peace for me | Reviewer: Terryle | 10/12/07

beautiful and very peaceful song, it´s really amazing. always when i listen to it i can feel so deep peace and rest... a song that helps me for a while forget the problems of my life and of the world... the power of songs like this is the power of u2... thank you very much, bono and co. ...



truly beautiful song | Reviewer: V.ARVIND | 5/27/07

I know U2 is known for making great music and songs, and im a great fan of U2. And this is one truly exceptional song. Its touching, and gives you a great feeling. The music and lyrics are great. By the way, the pregnant model in the video is really beautiful and adds to the feeling of the song.
I would like to know her name. Who is she? And Bono and his team too look great in the video ( as always).



Original of the Species | Reviewer: Amanda.F | 5/8/07

One of the most amazing song from U2! I just love it. It's the best song from the album. It's deep and you relate to it. It goes right into your heart!



Looooove it | Reviewer: Kendra | 1/18/06

It's deep, it's powerful, it's emotional...well, it's U2, so it had to be. I had no idea this was about Jordan. That gives the lyrics a whole new meaning I hadn't even noticed. It all comes down to the way you interpret it. I never would have thought this was what it meant. A whole new level. As the title says, I looooove it.
