Song Lyrics

[Lanois = Italics, Bono (w/ or w/o Lanois) = Normal]


Every chip from every cup
Every promise given up
Every reason that’s not enough
Is falling, falling at your feet


Every band at elastic limit
Every race when there’s nothing in it
Every winner that’s lost a ticket
Is falling, falling at your feet

I’ve come crawling
Falling at your feet

Everyone who needs a friend
Every life that has no end
Every knee not ready to bend
Is falling, falling at your feet

I’ve come crawling
Now I’m falling at your feet

All the manic taste faces that you pull / All fall down

All the actions not under your control / All fall down

The graffiti rolling down on five feet tall / All fall
down

And the compromise you make for someone / All fall down

Every teenager with acne
Every face that’s spoiled by beauty
Every adult tamed by duty
Are all falling at your feet

Every foot in every face
Every cop’s stop that finds the grace
Every prisoner in the maze
Every hand that needs an ace
Is falling, falling at your feet

I’ve come crawling
Now I’m falling at your feet

All the books you never read / All fall down
Just started / All fall down
All the meals you rushed / All fall down
Never tasted / All fall down

Every eye closed by a bruise
Every player who just can’t lose
Every popstar hurling abuse
Every dropout going to booze
All falling at your feet
Oh, I’m falling at your feet

All fall down… all the information
All fall down… all the big ideas
All fall down… all the radio waves
All fall down… electronic seas
All fall down… how to navigate
All fall down… how to simply be
All fall down… to know when to wait
All fall down… explain simplicity
All fall down… in whom shall I trust
All fall down… and how might I be still
All fall down… teach me to surrender
Not my will, thy will…
