Name that U2 song
« on: January 18, 2020, 08:49:35 PM »
We used to play this on the old place - you put a few words of a lyric to a U2 song - and then the next member names the song and posts another lyric ...... it's no fun if you go "I want to run, I want to hide" - make it challenging....and no googling.

"She has made of me a servant"

I don't know...but it somehow clicks in my mind as part of one of the old gospel songs I grew up with...
You ask me to enter, but then you make me crawl

Too hard? Ok this was "Wild Irish Rose"

"A gypsy she has made of me a servant of the street"

Try this one instead

"no car alarm, no cellular phone"

How about "alive in my head"?

Smile, that lyric is particularly memorable for me.

Some of you might know this one:

"Door is closed behind me now
The window is sealed, to shut out the light..
Green as the leaves the cure of the nettle sting
Do your work and you'll work out right..."

Boy falls from the sky - and kudos for choosing a spiderman song - not a cool thing to do in these parts

"we haunt this place, the ghosts of love"

Ah, one of the BEST...Stateless...I listen to this quite often.

How about "a feeling of never before"?
