Song Lyrics

[Reeve=Normal; Bono=Italics; Chorus=Bold]

And you said rise above
Open your eyes up
And you said rise above
But I can’t…I can’t

How long will it take
Before these feelings go away?
How much longer do I wait
And are there any real answers, anyway?
(I sit here feel)
Your silence in a crowded room
Louder than the loudest tune
I hang on every word…

And you said
Rise above
Open your eyes up
And you said rise above
But I can’t…I can’t

I miss you in everything
I was too fast traveling to take you in
I know silence is no crime
I just wish I could hear you fill it up
One more time
Yes, I know what you’d say to me
Exactly what you’d say to me
I still hang on every word…

And you said
Rise above
Ah-ah
Open your eyes up / Ah-ah
And you said rise above
Yourself

In a time of treason
Is there time for trust?
When there’s no them
Only us
Is there time for reason?
Has your heart had enough?
Is it time to let go
And rise above?

And you said rise above
Ah-ah
Open your eyes to love / Ah-ah
And you said rise above…yourself

Ah-ah, ah-ah
Oh-oh, ah-ah
Ah
