Miracle Drug;

I keep hearing the line "Science and the human waste, there is no limit"
am I wrong?
I think it's the human heart.

Mine is from Lemon. I always thought Bono sings: ''Goodnight, that's where the day begins.'' When I saw the lyrics it was: ''Midnight is where the day begins.'' Sinice I've read it I completly hear it is Midnight.

When I first listened to Volcano the "You and I are Rock and Roll" part I kept hearing "You and I are Rocky Road" LOL

I was puzzled as of why the song was titled Cedarwood Road when it wasn't in the lyrics. All I heard was "I can see the world, see the world go."
Which, obviously, did not make any sense!

Northside just across the river to the Southside
That’s a long way here
All the green and all the gold
The hurt you hide, the joy you hold
The foolish pride that gets you out the door
Up on Cedarwood Road, on Cedarwood Road

And you can imagine how stupid I felt when looking up the lyrics! ;)

A couple of mine--"ISHFWILF: "I have kissed haunted lips" (been singing this for 27 yrs, only found out the correct verse last yr!)

"Morleigh, you tea, you toast, you sugar" (I suspect I'm not the only one who  made this mistake)

The 2nd one is from Sleep Like A Baby Tonight. Looks like everyone heard Morleigh the first time.

Staring at the Sun- actual lyrics
Intransigence in all around
military's still in town

When I was young I heard "Tramps and gypsies all around", I still sing it like this when I listen to it,lol

"Intransigence" is probably the most out of the blue word in a U2 song. They don't really use vocabulary like that in the majority of their lyrics, do they?

At first I heard "dreams and juices all around..." "Tramps and gypsies" makes more sense than that!

"Intransigence"?? I don't even know what that means. I still hear "Geez, there's jinxes all around." Haha! ;-)
