home: u2 ยป u2 - staring at the sun

Testo staring at the sun - u2

Summer stretching on the grass

Summer dresses pass

In the shade of a willow tree

Creeps a crawling over me



Over me and over you

Stuck together with God's glue

It's going to get stickier too

It's been a long hot summer

Let's get under cover

Don't try too hard to think

Don't think at all



I'm not the only one

Staring at the sun

Afraid of what you'd find

If you took a look inside



I'm not just deaf and dumb

Staring at the sun

Not the only one

Who's happy to go blind



There's an insect in your ear

If you scratch it won't disappear

It's going to itch and burn and sting

You want to see what the scratching brings



Waves that leave me out of reach

Breaking on your back like a beach

Will we ever live in peace

'Cause those that can't do

Often have to

And those that can't do

Often have to preach



To the ones

Staring at the sun

Afraid of what you'll find

If you took a look inside



Not just deaf and dumb

Staring at the sun

I'm not the only one

Who'd rather go blind



Intransigence is all around

Military still in town

Armour plated suits and ties

Daddy just won't say goodbye



Referee won't blow the whistle

God is good but will He listen

I'm nearly great

But there's something missing

I left it in the duty free

But you never really belonged to me



You're not the only one

Staring at the sun

Afraid of what you'd find

If you stepped back inside



I'm not sucking on my thumb

I'm staring at the sun

Not the only one

Who's happy to go blind
