Lyrics Post: “Mysterious Ways”

U2. Achtung, Baby!

So many good songs.

“…if you want to kiss the sky, better learn how to kneel, on your knees, boy…” I love this line. I love the image, I love the instruction, I love the beat it goes along with.

Here’s the rest of the song. From 1991 to today, still gets my toe tapping, and lifts up my spirit.

“Mysterious Ways”

Johnny take a walk
With your sister the moon
Let her pale light in
To fill up your room
You’ve been living underground
Eating from a can
You’ve been running away
From what you don’t understand
Love She’s slippy
You’re sliding down
She’ll be there
When you hit the ground

It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright
She moves in mysterious ways
It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright
She moves in mysterious ways

Johnny take a dive
With your sister in the rain
Let her talk about the things
You can’t explain
To touch is to heal
To hurt is to steal
If you want to kiss the sky
Better learn how to kneel (on your knees boy!)She’s the wave
She turns the tide
She sees the man inside the child, yeah

It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright
She moves in mysterious ways
It’s alright,…
