Song Lyrics

[HG = Normal, Bono = Italics, Both = Bold]

Thank you very much. Thanks.
There is a word in German that’s called “Mensch”, this is also a word that special people in New York use if they want to say about something he’s a real mensch, means he’s a humble and decent guy. The next song is about if you have really a dramatic catastrophe in your life you have to go on, you have to move on and you realize how much friendship can do and how friends carry you through a really tough time. And that makes you believe in human beings, and the next song is called “Mensch”.

Every second has a reason
As the time slides away
Changing with the seasons
Just following the rain
No need to be final
I put my thoughts on hold
Daydreams at the water
As the tide ebbs and flows

And it’s all ok
I’ll take it day by day
This is summertime
Nothing on my mind
And a man’s called man

‘Cause we forgive and understand
We forget and we deny
We lose and still we try

‘Cause we love
‘Cause we live
I miss you

Skies blue, wide and open
Not a shade or trace of grey
Telephone, gas, electric
Unpaid, what can I say
Let us share the silence
What on earth can occur
I am not looking for commitment
Just give me your word

And it’s all ok
We take it day by day
This is summertime
Got nothing on my mind
And a man’s called man
‘Cause we forgive and understand
We forget and we deny
We lose and still we try

‘Cause we love
‘Cause we live

I miss you
‘Cause we love
Cause we live
I miss you

Oh, it’s all ok
Take it day by day
This is summertime
Nothing on my mind
And a man’s called man
‘Cause we forgive and understand
We dance into the storm
Keep hurt from our homes

‘Cause we are
‘Cause we live
I miss you

Hey, it’s all ok
The pain fades away
This is summertime
Nothing on my mind
And a man’s called man
‘Cause we forgive and understand
We forget and we deny
We loose and still we try

‘Cause we are
‘Cause we live
I miss you
‘Cause we are
‘Cause we live
I miss you

Oh-oh
Oo-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
Oh-oh
Oo-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
Oh-oh
Oo-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
Oh-oh
Oo-la-la-la-la-la-la-la

I miss you.
Like the sun misses the sky.
I miss you.
Don’t ever say goodbye.
I miss you.

Oh-oh
Oo-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
Oh-oh
Oo-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
Oh-oh
Oo-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
Oh-oh
Oo-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
[Continues to the end]

Thank you so much
There goes a lovely man
One of the best men I know
Bono
What an honor, what an honor
Thanks a lot, thanks a lot
A real honor, thanks, thanks.
