lyrics: Bono

music: Zucchero

 

 

You feel familiar

But I’m not sure I know your name

I don’t know why I’m telling you this story today

A whisper on the breeze

I heard a rustle in the trees

I need to know and maybe you’ll explain

Why I can’t stop crying

And nothing is as it appears

I can’t stop crying

But I’m crying someone else’s tears

Someone else’s tears

The grapes are gathered

The wine is pressed

And despite the rain it’s been a good year

To walk these fields again

In the chapel of our youth we bowed down to beauty and truth

I see no reason but maybe you’ll explain

Why I can’t stop crying

But I’m crying someone else’s tears

Someone else’s tears

The red house that we built...

It’s still standing... proud

The glasses that we filled...

Let’s raise them now

It might be raining

But the sun is gonna burst through the clouds

The storm it can be stilled...

Let’s go out...

But I can’t stop crying

As I’m crashing through the gears

I can’t stop crying

But I’m crying someone else’s tears

Someone else’s tears

I can’t stop lying

Have I been lying all these years?

I can’t stop trying

To chase away her fears

I can’t stop crying, crying,

Someone else’s tears

Thank you, Scout.

Ok, this is probably not something I should cop to, because I swear to god that I do not follow every piece of news that comes out about this band, or even think to do so with any regularity.  Honest.  Honest.  But, I saw this pointless news clip last week that was headlined as Bono out in public without his glasses, and the writer was commenting on the "bags" under his eyes. I thought it was quite a hateful comment:

"dark under eye circles and bags were clearly visible on the 50-year-olds face which is usually covered with a pair of Emporio Armani shades."

 I took a look at the picture and thought to myself that it looked as if he had been crying non-stop--and I wondered why, before forcing the thought out of my head, because, frankly, it is ridiculous to project anything onto a photo and it is really none of my business to wonder about the emotional state of strangers anyway.  Christ, he could simply not have slept in days, was hung over, or has a cold, or anything else!  But, the thought that he had been crying profusely crept back in once or twice over the last week against my will, which actually irritated me considerably.  But, I guess my interest in synergies, regardless of how tenuous or illusory, is overcoming my being irritated with myself for having the thought at all.   So, I mention it.

At any rate, here is that photo, for what it is worth:
