Staring at the Sun - U2


Summer stretching on the grass, Summer dresses pass
In the shade of a willow tree, Creeps are crawling over me
Over me and over you, Stuck together with God's glue
It's gonna' get stickier, too
It's been a long, hot summer
Lets get undercover
Don't try to hard to think, don't think at all
I'm not the only one staring at the sun.
Afraid of what you'd find if you took a look inside
I'm not just deaf and dumb, staring at the sun
Not the only one who's happy to go blind
There's an insect in your ear, if you scratch it won't disappear
It's gonna itch and burn and sting
Do you want to see what the scratching brings?
Waves that leave me out of reach
Breaking on your back like a beach
Will we ever live in peace?
'Cause those that can't do, often have to
And those that can't do, often have to preach
To the ones
Staring at the sun
Afraid of what you'd find if you took a look inside
Not just deaf and dumb, I'm staring at the sun
I'm not the only one who'd rather go blind

Intransigence is all around
Military still in town
Armour plated suits and ties
Daddy just won't say goodbye
Referee won't blow the whistle
God is good but will He listen?
I'm nearly great But there's something missing
I left it in the duty free
Thought you never really belonged to me

You're not the only one staring at the sun
Afraid of what you'd find you step back inside
Not sucking on my thumb, I'm staring at the sun
I'm not the only one who's happy to go blind

No novo ano, vamos todos atrever-nos a fixar o Sol até cegarmos!
