I told you about these people earlier on, didn’t I?
This is the New Voices of Freedom
They just happened to be walking past Madison Square Gardens
You alright? OK?
What do you wanna do?
I think you only know one song
And so, from U2 and the New Voices of Freedom
This is for you

I have climbed highest mountain
I have run through the fields
Only to be with you
Only to be with you

I have run
I have crawled
I have scaled these city walls
These city walls
Only to be with you

But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for
But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for
Alright

I have kissed honey lips
Felt the healing in her fingertips
It burned like a fire / Burning like a fire
This burning desire / Burning with desire

I have spoke with the tongue of angels
I have held the hand of a devil
It was warm in the night / In the night
I was cold as a stone / Cold as stone

But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for
But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for
Alright

He will lift you higher and higher
He will pick you up when you’re down
He’ll be the shelter from the storm / I believe

I believe in a kingdom come
Then all the colors will bleed into one
Bleed into one
But, yes I’m still running

You broke the bonds / Broke the bonds
Loosed the chains / Loosed the chains
Carried the cross / Carried the cross
Of my shame / Of my shame
Of my shame
You know I believe it
I believe it

But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for
But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for

I have climbed / I have climbed
Highest mountain / Highest mountain
I have run / I have run
Through the fields / Through the fields
Only to be with you / Only to be with you
Only to be with you / Just to be with you

I have run / I Have run
I have crawled / I Have crawled
I have scaled / I Have scaled
These city walls / City walls
These city walls / Only to be with you
Only to be with you / Just to be with you

But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for
But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for / Raise your hands
But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for
But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for / New Voices of Freedom

I believe in a kingdom come
Then all the colors will bleed into one
I believe it

But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for
But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for
But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for
But I still…haven’t found …what I’m looking for

Thank you
Thank you very much
