write a song for U2

Recommended Posts

Dew on grass,
the little water
wets my shoes and acquietances  my mind.
Dew on grass,
the first discover of the morning,
the first discreet thoughts of the day.

Hail on ,

hail on,

hail on,

hail on.

Until I do not understand that what I am seeing now it is not for us,

it is just with us,

until I do understand that taking care it is not burden, but a luminous share.

Hail on,

hail on,

to the new world,

hail on, in word and peace.

Hail on.

This was not written for U2.  I often wonder what it would sound like if it was a U2 song.  It's the beginning of a larger piece which ultmately ends in hope.   

 

So now the clouds have come

I've watched them slowly

Swallow up the Sun

Taking all our leaves away.

These plows produce dustbowls

Each season yields nothing

One more harvest blows astray.

That tapping on the wndow

It's ending the fugue of nght

Flashed twisted and turning

Dropped yearning and burnng 

There's no hand up in sight.

No more should we see the endless sea of misery that drowns the ones like you and me.

Hallelujiah!

I love the rhythm you got going in this line. .

Sorry I had to cut mine because I am writing a story in Italian  and I put it inside the story  and it must be unpublished.

I think that's very wise of you.  No need to apologize but thanks.  That line has a good groove to it. .  I did not mention what I posted has been published and is protected..  I feared doing so would come across incorrectly. Sad someone might steal but it's reality.  Very sad we would have to fear that on U2.com but such is our world.  Best of luck to you wrting that story.  May your muses inspire you...

I just put a brake into my heart,

to listen to the true word,

told by anyone who wants to be involved in something greater than

the self of today.

I just put a brake into my heart,

to be compassionate from the deep inside and to enjoy a wish of joy

in the moltitude.

Love is a free choice,

love comes from the high,

love is not ignored by anyone.

So,

dancing dancing dancing dancing , with no shame.

The party is in the adapted place.

The word of order is to be together

and for someone the lane has already been traced,

for somebody is the start of the fight.

Dancing dancing dancing dancing,

no thought in mind.

It is an ancient custom,

it is not an exercise of the tongue.

It is the speech of all the body.

So,

dancing dancing dancing dancing, with no shame.
