WALK ON

Posted on 2005.07.23 at 11:17
Kite - U2

Something
Is about to give
I can feel it coming
I think I know what it is

I'm not afraid to die
I'm not afraid to live
And when I'm flat on my back
I hope to feel like I did

And hardness
It sets in
You need some protection
The thinner the skin

I want you to know
That you don't need me anymore
I want you to know
You don't need anyone
Or anything at all

Who's to say where the wind will take you
Who's to say what it is will break you
I don't know
Which way the wind will blow

Who's to know when the time has come around
Don't want to see you cry
I know that this is not goodbye

It's somewhere I can taste the salty sea
There's a kite blowing out of control on the breeze
I wonder what's gonna happen to you
You wonder what has happened to me

I'm a man
I'm not a child
A man who sees
The shadow behind your eyes

Who's to say where the wind will take you
Who's to say what it is will break you
I don't know
Where the wind will blow

Who's to know when the time has come around
I don't want to see you cry
I know that this is not goodbye

Did I waste it
Not so much I couldn't taste it
Life should be fragrant
Rooftop to the basement

The last of the rocks stars
When hip-hop drove the big cars
In the time when new media
Was the big idea
What was the big idea

u2

I know you like U2.

But hey - the site that gave me this made a mistake in one word.

Can you spot it?

Yes, it's a great song.

My fav from the album is Slow Down My Beating Heart - although that's not actually the name of it!

*sigh* one of my favourite U2 songs is Staring at the Sun and if I'm thinking correctly it's off of POP.

But Kite is a lovely song for fathers and daughters.

hey

Cool. I recorded both ATYCLB and Pop last night onto cassette, so I'm getting into Staring At the Sun again! In fact, it's in my head right now! When I recorded, though, I rearranged some of the songs, and left a couple out - driving music, you know. I swear, if U2 had arranged some of their albums differently, like Pop, they would have sold even better.

Hmmmm... I never thought Kite was about a daughter... That kind of makes the post a little different...

Re: hey

erm I don't know why people didn't like POP, I thought it was an awesome album, I have never skipped a single song ever while listening to it, beautiful stuff really. MIAMI...my mammy. makes me giggle.

I vaguely remember Bono saying that the song was written for his elder daughter erm, Jordan I think.
