Cherry dance

Guys. I see this has been discussed. But the answer is simple and nobody seems to have it.

It's:

Share a dance with me, turn me around tonight up the spiral staircase to the higher ground.

That makes sense.
It's a line to Ali suggesting, ahem, 'arrangements' at their Martello Tower that they used to live in back in the 1980's. 
Very sensual lyrics!

So you are discussing Promenade's lyrics, right? Nice find!
I didn t know Bono and Ali used to live at a Martello Tower. What an inspiring place!

So far I had heard :
"Tell me
Tell me you'll dance with me
Turn me around tonight
Off the spiral staircase
To the higher ground"
Not that it made a lot of sense anyway, lol.
So I gave the song another listen and Laoghaire you're totally right about the lyrics (I keep hearing "off the staircase" instead of up, but it's stupid).
