U2 - Wave Of Sorrow (Birdland) lyrics

rate me

Heat haze rising on hell's own hill

To wake up this morning is an act of will

Walk through the night to get here today

To bring your children, to give them away

Oh, oh, this cruel sun, is daylight never done?

Cruelty just begun to make a shadow of everyone

And if the rain came

And if the rain came now

Souls bent over without a breeze

Blankets on burning trees

I am sick without disease

Nobility on it's knees

And if the rain came

And if the rain came, now

Would it wash us all away on a wave of sorrow?

Wave, wave of sorrow

Where now the holy cities? Where are the ancient holy scrolls?

Where now Emperor Menelek and Queen of Sheba's gold?

You, my bride wear a crown, on your finger, precious stone

As every good thing now been sold

Son, of shepherd boy, now king

What wisdom can you bring?

What lyric could you sing?

Where is the music of the Seraphim?

And if the rain came

And if the rain came, now

Would it wash us all away, on a wave of sorrow?

Wave, on a wave of sorrow, wave

Blessed are the meek who scratch in the dirt

For they shall inherit what's left of the earth

Blessed are the kings who have left their thrones

They are blessed in this valley of dry bones

Blessed all of you with an empty heart

For you have nothing from which you cannot part

Blessed is the ego if it's all we got this hour

Blessed is the voice that speaks truth to power

Blessed is the sex worker's body sold tonight

She works for what she's got to save her children's life

Blessed are the deaf who cannot hear a scream

Blessed are the stupid who can dream

Blessed are the tin can, cardboard slums

And blessed is the spirit that overcomes
