Song Lyrics

[Bono=Normal; Billie Joe=_Italics_; Both=*Bold*]

I cried to my daddy on the telephone
How long now?
Until the clouds unroll and you come down
The line went
But the shadows still remain since your descent
Your descent

_I cried to my daddy on the telephone
How long now?
Until the clouds unroll and you come home
The line went
But the shadows still remain since your descent
Your descent_

Boom! Cha! Hoy!

*The saints are coming, the saints are coming
I say no matter how I try I realize there’s no reply
The saints are coming, the saints are coming
I say no matter how I try I realize there’s no reply*

[Backing vocals]
Ooo…

A drowning sorrow floods the deepest grief
How long now
Until a weather change condemns belief *How long now
When the night watchman lets in the thief
What’s wrong now?*

Boom! Cha! Hoy!

*The saints are coming, the saints are coming
I say no matter how I try I realize there’s no reply
The saints are coming, the saints are coming
I say no matter how I try I realize there’s no reply
I say no matter how I try I realize there’s no reply
I say no matter how I try I realize there’s no reply*
