Always Lyrics - U2

Review The Song (2)

Here today
And gone tomorrow
Crack the bone, get to the marrow
To be the bee
And the flower
Before the sweetness turns to sour

What we have we're gonna keep... always
What we've lost we don't need... always
What is it that won't let you sleep... always

Be the arrow
And the target
Put your head over the parapet
Be uncool
Yes, be awkward
And don't look in the obvious place
The soul needs beauty for a soul mate

Get down off your holy cloud... always
God will not deal with the proud... always
Well if you dream then dream out loud... always
Eternally yours... always

I want you
I want you
I want you

(Here she come)
Touching the other side
I wanted to be in love
I wanted to call
(Hey, soon soon)

You say come to know yourself... always
Don't find yourself in someone else... always
And always wear a safety belt... always
Wait for me I'm running late... always
This is the moment that we share... for always
Turn each song into a prayer... always

Now and forever
For always
For always
For always

Great song | Reviewer: matt1996 | 8/18/2006

Have read in several places that this was an early version of Beautiful Day. I think it is better. For some reason it reminds me of Polonius' farewell speech to Laertes in Act I of Hamlet. Kind of giving some life instructions. So I always thought that Bono might be giving some of his outlook on life for his kids (and our) use. I was planning on using this song as background for a video of my kids.

Beautiful | Reviewer: Balfron | 5/30/2005

A really good song this, in typical U2 style the song is catchy, almost gimmicky but has an underlying fullness and wholesomeness so rare in today's pop culture. The song, for me at least, symbolises a transitional period. The song embraces technology, with Bono's voice distorted and computer effects present throughout the song, but has the feel of an All That You Can't Leave Behind song. Pop to ATYCLB was a big change, and i suspect (and this is purely guess work) that this song was left of ATYCLB because U2 couldn't manage to leave Pop behind.

Anyway,a beautiful song obviously written from the heart, Always is almost a mission statement from U2. Well worth getting your hands on, u2 fan or not.
