Stay (Faraway, So Close!) - U2


written by U2


Green light, Seven Eleven
You stop in for a pack of cigarettes
You don't smoke, don't even want to
Hey now, check your change
Dressed up like a car crash
Your wheels are turning but you're upside down
You say when he hits you, you don't mind
Because when he hurts you, you feel alive
Hey babe, is that what it is

Red lights, gray morning
You stumble out of a hole in the ground
A vampire or a victim
It depend's on who's around
You used to stay in to watch the adverts
You could lip synch to the talk shows

And if you look, you look through me
And when you talk, you talk at me
And when I touch you, you don't feel a thing

If I could stay...
Then the night would give you up
Stay...and the day would keep its trust
Stay...and the night would be enough

Faraway, so close
Up with the static and the radio
With satelite television
You can go anywhere
Miami, New Orleans
London, Belfast and Berlin

And if you listen I can't call
And if you jump, you just might fall
And if you shout, I'll only hear you

If I could stay...
Then the night would give you up
Stay...then the day would keep its trust
Stay...with the demons you drowned
Stay...with the spirit I found
Stay...and the night would be enough

Three o'clock in the morning
It's quiet and there's no one around
Just the bang and the clatter
As an angel runs to ground

Just the bang
And the clatter
As an angel
Hits the ground.




Portnote:
  1. Taken from the album Zooropa (1993) and OST filem Faraway, So Close! (1993)
  2. One of Bono personal favorite U2 songs and perhaps their most underrated.
  3. *The song could not only be about a guardian angel but a figure in one's life that serves as a guardian, but is never truly recognized. A man may love and care for a woman, but she never acknowledges him or loves him in return. (I guess this is the best meaning to me. Feeling that I always have in my life...)
  4. Faraway , so close adalah sequel kepada Filem Wings of Desire (1987).
  5. Filem Wings of desire telah diremake oleh hollywood menjadi filem City of Angels (1988) lakonan Meg Ryan dan Nicholas Cage.
