Song Lyrics

[Bono’s prerecorded voice = Italics]

You know something?
You’re [BLEEP] beautiful

Lover, I’m off the streets
I’m gonna go where the bright lights
Big city meet
With a red guitar on fire
Desire

She’s a candle burning in my room
I’m like a needle, needle and a spoon
Over the counter with a shotgun
Pretty soon y’all everybody got one
And the fever when I’m inside her
Desire
Desire

Guitar

And the fever when I’m inside her
Desire
Desire
Burning
Yes I’m burning, baby

Just remember all of this can be yours
I know because I own it
Five-lane freeways
You’ve heard of faith, I’ll tell you about luck
Free phone information
We can take you all for a little unit
Shall we go there together?
Good luck
Ladies and gentlemen, will we go there together?
Laser-guided missiles
Are we driven by a limousine together?
Shall we open a bottle of champagne together?
Drink from the fountain of prosperity

Dollars
She’s my protection / Have I got money to give away
She is a promise
Of the year of election
Oh sister, I can’t let ya go
Like a preacher stealing hearts
At a traveling show

For love or money
More money
More money, more money / Passing away from me
More money, money, more money / I’m passing away

And the fever when I’m inside her
Desire…
Desire…
Desire / You’re beautiful
Desire

[Announcer= Italics]
We’re backstage now
We’re… in the wings
We’re gonna do everything we possibly can to go onstage
Talk to Bono, Edge, Larry, or Adam at the ah, conclusion of Desire
We’ve got several questions for Bono if we can get close to him
We don’t know if he’ll talk to us tonight

Here she come now
Here she come now
Here she come now
Is she coming

The moment we’ve been waiting for
We’re going onstage now
The cameras are following us
Lucky how close we’re getting to Bono
This is the closest we’ve ever been
We’re getting right up to him
Bono, may I have a word with you?
Talk to ZooTV
Bono, can you just talk to ZooTV for a moment?
Bono, can you just talk?
We know this might be an inopportune time
We just want to ask you a few questions for ZooTV
Bono, we want to ask you what you believe in
Bono, we want to ask you what you believe in
We want to ask you what you believe in
We want to ask you what you believe in
What do you believe in?

I believe in love
What are you buying?
Yes, I believe in love, love
What else do you believe in?
Money… love
Give us some truth, give us some truth
I believe in poetry, electricity, cheap cosmetics
What do you hope, what do you hope for?
I believe in the sky over my head and the silver shoes beneath me
What should we buy?
I believe in Las Vegas, I’ve been there, I know that it exists
I believe in you
You believe in me?
I believe for you
What do you believe for these people?
I have a vision
What’s your vision?
I have a vision… I have a vision
What’s the vision?
I have a vision
What’s the vision?
Television, television, television, television…

That’s all folks
