Sleep Like A Baby Tonight

Morning, your toast, your tea and sugar,
Read about the politician’s lover
Go through the day like knife through butter
Why don’t you
You dress in the colours of forgiveness
Your eyes as red as Christmas
Purple robes are folded on the kitchen chair

You’re gonna sleep like a baby tonight
In your dreams, everything is alright
Tomorrow dawns like someone else’s suicide
You’re gonna sleep like a baby tonight

Dreams,
It’s a dirty business, dreaming
Where there is silence and not screaming
Where there’s no daylight, there’s no healing

You’re gonna sleep like a baby tonight
In your dreams, everything is alright
Tomorrow dawns like a suicide
But you’re gonna sleep like a baby tonight

Hope is where the door is
When the church is where the war is
Where no one can feel no one else’s pain

You’re gonna sleep like a baby tonight
In your dreams, everything is alright
Tomorrow dawns like a suicide
But you’re gonna sleep like a baby tonight
Sleep like a baby tonight
Like a bird, your dreams take flight
Like St Francis covered in light
You’re gonna sleep like a baby tonight

I didn't know they did that one live before last year. Great drumming.

I always found it strange/cool how the bass does not follow the chord changes in the verses (does in the chorus). It works.

"We run like a river to the sea" has got to be one of the most powerful lyrics ever. Can anyone cite chapter and verse on that one?

I can't come up with anything of substance, other than the possible religious meanings.  But those are vague to me at best. I wish I could come up with something more meaningful to the discussion.  I agree it's a very powerful lyric.

I found this book that has a chapter (chapter 5) that is titled - "Coping With Loss - U2's One Tree Hill".  You may need to scroll up the page to get to the start of chapter 5.

Also, found this post published in 2017 titled - "We Will Run Like A River To The Sea".  It has some interesting tidbits about the song I never put together.

As usual, I'm pretty lame with coming up with answers from my own mind.  I'm good at googling though...

Ecclesiastes 1:7 - my copy and paste is broken though.

We run back to God.

It's such a poignant idea, all the layers of it. Comforting, sure, but also uneasy in its inevitability, that driving power of that flow home, we are helpless against that tide. We are one even if we feel so seperate - how can we tell this part of the river from that part?

You nailed it.

Ecclesiastes 1:7

All streams flow into the sea,
yet the sea is never full.
To the place the streams come from,
there they return again.

Yes, it is. 

And that was a good spot on your part.  Well done!

Oh, gosh, no - that was from the Bible references page on this site. Will paste the link in a sec. Vaguely remembered there was a Biblical reference but initially too lazy to look it up.

"On a now idle forum someone put up this thread, circa 2004 or so, and I asked "what for?" prior to get an answer wich stuck to me as this: as a fan of U2:s music you tend to disregard some of their songs. This thread allows you to                  discover, or rediscover songs of U2, or details of a riff or a baseline or whatever. If you are so into U2 as to browsw our site, then start with a suggestion for a song that you are listening to. U2, that is. " "

This is part of an answer from me to a member f this thread. Apparently, I am not allowed to reply to a pm without quoting it. Well I shan't since this suggests permission. (How hard could it be?)

Now playing: 11 O'Clock Tick Tock (Red Rocks). Memory: recoreded it from TV on VHS, and said to myself: screw maths, I just have to watch this one again! You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

I've been listening to In a Little While lately.

This could have been the working tirle for John Lennon's Mind Games. When the future is the past…  :P
