Acrobat Lyrics - U2

Review The Song (3)



Don't believe what you hear
Don't believe what you see
If you just close your eyes
You can feel the enemy
When I first met you girl
You had fire in your soul
What happened your face of melting in snow?
Now it looks like this
And you can swallow
Or you can spit
You can throw it up
Or choke on it
And you can dream
So dream out loud
You know that your time is coming 'round
So don't let the bastards grind you down

No, nothing makes sense
Nothing seems to fit
I know you'd hit out
If you only knew who to hit
And I'd join the movement
If there was one I could believe in
Yeah I'd break bread and wine
If there was a church I could receive in
'Cause I need it now

To take the cup
To fill it up
To drink it slow
I can't let you go
I must be an acrobat
To talk like this
And act like that
And you can dream
So dream out loud
And don't let the bastards grind you down

Oh, it hurts baby
What are we going to do? Now it's all been said
No new ideas in the house and every book has been read

And I must be an acrobat
To talk like this
And act like that
And you can dream
So dream out loud
And you can find
Your own way out
And you can build
And I can will
And you can call
I can't wait until
You can stash
And you can seize
In dreams begin
Responsibilities
And I can love
And I can love
And I know that the tide is turning 'round
So don't let the bastards grind you down

Couldn't give two sh*ts about this song till after moving to "Make Believe Land" (Brazil), where one actually has to be an "acrobat" to survive... I've lived by these lyrics ever since... [brackets] STILL LOVE YOU, BIA!!! [close brackets]



I couldnt agree more.. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/10/10

mate, i did the exact same thing, i never rated this song, until i heard Ultraviolet from the 360 tour, and was blown away with how they did it. I listened to the album again and some of the other songs and this one just lifted me! It just is written (like a lot of their other songs)with perfectly picked words to punch that emotion into you.

This one is obviously about showing that you can chase your dreams, even if you are the underdog. Unless you already are, there is always someone better than you at whatever your dream is. Don't try to beat them because your time will come (eg. i know that the tide is turning 'round, i know that your time is coming 'round)

Overall, It's probably one of their most well written songs. And just for others interested, just read the lyrics to some of the other 'not so well' known U2 tracks, and you will see how they make their song writing look so easy and how they produce the best

never gave this song a chance, after U2360 and them playing Ultraviolet, re-listened to the whole album and cant get enough of this song. What a power this is, for U2 to revive songs like that. Wow!
