Song Lyrics

[Bono=Nornal, Patti Smith=Italics, Both=Bold]

No words for you this evening
This is a song about letting go
Letting go of the past, letting go of the present
Could be a country, could be a person
Could be an addiction

If you twist and turn away
If you tear yourself in two again
If I could, you know I would
If I could, I would
Let it go
Surrender, not dislocate
Oh

If I could throw this lifeless lifeline to the wind
Leave this heart of clay
See you break, break away
Into the night
Through the rain
Into the half light
Through the flame
Help us now

Oh-oh

To let it go
So not fade away
To let it go
So not fade away

Wide awake
Wide awake
Wide awake
I’m not sleeping
We’re not sleeping

If they should ask well maybe
They’d tell me what I should say
True colors fly in blue and black
Bruised silken sky and like a burning flag
Colours crash, collide in blood shot eyes

If I could, you know I would
If I could, I would let it go

This separation
Isolation
Condemnation
Devilation
Condemnation

Let it go
So not fade away
Let it go
So not fade, fade
Fade away, fade away

Vive le France!

Wide awake
Wide awake
Wide awake
I’m not sleeping
I’m not sleeping

Gloria, g-l-o-r-i-a
Gloria, g-l-o-r-i-a
Gloria, gloria
Gloria…

Can we have Patti Smith?
To sing the Gloria

Our designer, our Elvis

Gloria, g-l-o-r-i-a
Gloria, g-l-o-r-i-a
Gloria, g-l-o-r-i-a
Gloria, g-l-o-r-i-a

Gloria, g-l-o-r-i-a
Gloria, g-l-o-r-i-a
Gloria, g-l-o-r-i-a
Gloria, g-l-o-r-i-a

Gloria, g-l-o-r-i-a
Gloria, g-l-o-r-i-a
Gloria, g-l-o-r-i-a

Gloria
Wide awake, Gloria
Wide awake, Gloria
I’m not sleeping
I’m not sleeping, oh yeah yeah yeah
I’m not sleeping

Patti Smith

Alright something special for the city of Paris

You take this

I was dreaming in my dreaming
Well of an aspect bright and fair
And my sleeping it was broken
But my dream it lingered near

In the form of shining valleys
Where the pure air rarefied
And my senses newly opened
I awakened to the cry

That the people have the power
To redeem the work of fools
On the meek the graces shower
It’s decreed the people rule

People have the power
People have the power
People have the power, believe it
People have the power

Vengeful aspects became suspect
And bending low as if to hear
And the armies ceased advancing
Because the people had their ear

And the shepherds and the soldiers
Well they laid beneath the stars
Exchanging visions, laying arms
To waste in the dust

In the form of shining valleys
Where the pure air rarefied
And my senses newly opened
I awakened to the cry, c’mon

People have the power
People have the power
People have the power
People have the power

Believe it

Where there were deserts, I saw fountains
And like cream the waters rise
And I strolled I strolled together
With none to laugh or criticize

There is no leopard and the lamb
Lay together truly bound
Well I was hoping in my hoping
To recall what I had found

I was dreaming in my dreaming
God knows a pure view
As I surrender into my sleeping
I commit my dream to you

People have the power, to dream
People have the power, to vote
People have the power, to strike
People have the power, to win

The power to dream, to rule
To wrestle the world from fools
It’s decreed the people rule
It’s decreed the people rule

Listen, I believe everything we dream
Can come to pass through our union
We can turn the world around
We can turn the earth’s revolution

The people have the power
The people have the power
The people have the power
The people have the power

The power to dream, to rule
To wrestle the world from fools
It’s decreed the people rule
It’s decreed the people rule

The people have the power
The people have the power
The people have the power
The people have the power

Don’t forget it
Use…your…voice
