Beautiful Day

The heart is a bloom
Shoots up through the stony ground
There's no room
No space to rent in this town

You're out of luck
And the reason that you had to care
The traffic is stuck
And you're not moving anywhere

You thought you'd found a friend
To take you out of this place
Someone you could lend a hand
In return for grace

It's a beautiful day
Sky falls, you feel like
It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away

You're on the road
But you've got no destination
You're in the mud
In a maze of her imagination

You love this town
Even if that doesn't ring true
You've been all over
And it's been all over you

It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away
It's a beautiful day

Touch me
Take me to that other place
Teach me love
I know I'm not a hopeless case

See the world in green and blue
See China, right in front of you
See the canyons broken by cloud
See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out

See the Bedouin fires at night
See the oil fields at first light
And see the bird with a leaf in her mouth
After the flood, all the colors came out

It was a beautiful day
Don't let it get away
Beautiful day

Touch me
Take me to that other place
Reach me
I know I'm not a hopeless case

What you don't have, you don't need it now
What you don't know, you can feel it somehow
What you don't have, you don't need it now
Don't need it now
It was a beautiful day

U2 - don't know the date


I'm in a really good mood today, and I don't know why... but I feel... almost inspired. And I have this song on repeat, and I'm singing at the top of my lungs :P

The song was over-played for a while in the summer... now I only hear it once a day because 'Ron & Don' always end their radio shift with it.

That's still quite a bit! I might hear it once a month or so, or whenever it comes up on my playlist

Re: question
They were both comedians! And neither one of them could sing a note; although they made a living at it.

Re: question
heh, [shreaking whine]"With or WhITH owUt yhouuu O Oh...... OOOOOOOH OOOOOOOOH OOOOOooh"[/shreaking whine] His music is not bad, it is funny when you realize he can't be serious. Also most of the music includes a few lines of him trying to get laid. "life sucks because____. I want to be your love monkey, let me be your love monkey. The things that I told you you have to hate aren't bad. Love those things now."
