Lyrics



Blessed are the bullies
For one day they will have to stand up
To themselves
Blessed are the liars
For the truth can be awkward

It's not a place
This country is to me a sound
Of drum and bass
You close your eyes to look around

Look around
Look around
Look around
It's a sound
Look around
Look around
It's a sound

It's not a place
This country is to me a thought
That offers grace
For every welcome that is sought

You are rock and roll
You and I are rock and roll
You are rock and roll
Came here looking for American Soul

It's not a place
This is a dream the whole world owns
The pilgrim's face
It had your heart to call her home


You are rock and roll
You and I are rock and roll
You are rock and roll
Came here looking for American Soul

American
American
Put your hands in the air
Hold on the sky
Could be too late
But we still gotta try
There's a moment in our life where a soul can die
And the person in a country when you believe the lie
The lie
There's a promise in the heart of every good dream
It's a call to action, not to fantasy
The end of a dream, the start of what's real
Let it be unity
Let it be community
For refugees like you and me
A country to receive us
Will you be our sanctuary
Refu-jesus

You are rock and roll
You and I are rock and roll
You are rock and roll
Came here looking for American Soul
You are rock and roll
You and I are rock and roll
You are rock and roll
Came here looking for American Soul
American Soul
American Soul


U2 lyrics for Love Is All We Have Left from Songs of Experience

Love Is All We Have Left lyrics by U2


 Love Is All We Have Left song lyrics by U2

 Love Is All We Have Left song lyrics by U2


A song confirmed by Bono to be on the Songs of Experience album.

Bono said this to Rolling Stone Magazine about the song:


"There's nothing to stop this being the best day ever." In the second verse, innocence admonishes experience: "Now you're at the other end of the telescope, seven billion stars in her eyes, so many stars so many ways of seeing, hey, this is no time not to be alive." 

It's a chilling moment – in the chorus I was pretending to be Frank Sinatra singing on the moon, a sci-fi torch song "love, love is all we have left, a baby cries on the doorstep, love is all we have left." 

U2 lyrics for "Get Out Of Your Own Way"

songs of experience get out of your own way

"Get Out Of Your Own Way" song lyrics by U2


Bono has stated this song will indeed be found on the Songs of Experience album. He said of the lyrics "I've tried to use some biting irony to reflect the anger out on the streets ".

U2's 'Get Out Of Your Own Way' lyrics




Get out of your own way. Hey ay
Get out of your own way. Hey ha

Love hurts
Now you've look out, whose left with no words ?
Your hearts a balloon but then it bursts
It doesn't take a cannon just a pin
Your skin's recovering

And resistance
Love has got to fight for its existence
The enemy has armies for assistance
The amorist, the glamorous, the kiss
A fist, listen to this, oh
Get out of your own way. Hey ooh
Get out of your own way. Hey haa

I could sing it to ya all night, all night
If I could, I'd make it alright, alright
Nothing's stopping you except what's inside
I can help you, but it's your fight, your fight.

Fight back, don't take it lying down you've got to bite back

The face of liberty is starting to crack
She had a plan until she got a smack in the mouth and it all went south like freedom. 

The slaves are looking for someone to lead 'em
The master's looking for someone to need him.
The promised land is there for those who need it most and Lincoln's ghost says

Get out of your own way. Ohh uuh
Get out of your own way. Ohhh Uhh

Your fight, your fight!

I could sing it to ya all night, all night
If I could, I'd make it alright, alright
Nothing's stopping you except what's inside
I can help you, but it's your fight, your fight

Get out of your own way.
Get out of your own way.

Edge does a mini solo.

Get out of your own way.
Get out of your own way.
Get out of your own way.

Kendrick Lamar's cameo at the end:

Blessed are the arrogant who dares the kingdom of their own company
Blessed are the superstars for the magnificence in their light, we understand better our own insignificance
Blessed are the filthy rich, for you can only truly own what you give away, like your pain...
