Moment of Surrender Live "Extra Lyrics"
« on: June 02, 2010, 04:36:01 PM »
Anyone have any idea what the lyrics were that Bono sung (spoke) towards the end of Moment of Surrender Live from the Rose Bowl?

Was it improvised or lyrics from another song?

Something like "Life is short, but its the longest thing you'll ever do" after that parts seemed inaudible

It's new, he did it a bit across the second leg of 360 - the first appearance was when they played MoS on SNL, I believe. The words are;

"Your life is short, it's the longest thing you''ll ever do/
the worse the curse was that your dreams came true/
God is a mirror in which each man sees himself/
Hell is place where you don't need anyone's help..

..When I first met you, your face was like snow
Wherever I went to, you wanted to go
Your face, Your grace, Your can of mace, your lipstick case
A-17 on the ground/ Your faith in a Clown
Don't leave me now
Don't leave me now
Don't leave me now Lord in this song...
Don't leave me now... alone in this song"

A-17's the name of a stealth plane (like U2!). I'm sure I heard somewhere that the character in MoS was a former soldier who turned to drugs, not 100% sure on that tho.

Actually I just noticed that the lyrics represent suicide, A-17 in the ground, so the person crashed, don't leave me now, meaning that he probably is dying and doesn't want his companion to leave.

I like the extra lyrics. The "don't leave me now" part especially.

I thought I heard it clearly as 8 17.... on the ground.

Check out Daniel 8:17... talking about falling to the ground. (17. So he came near to where I was standing, and when he came I was frightened and fell on my face; but he said to me, "Son of man, understand that the vision pertains to the time of the end."

Any thoughts?

On the Rose Bowl DVD it sounds a lot more like 8 17.

That's an interesting take on it.

'can of mace' part was also in "New York"- Hot as a handbag and a can of mace.

Hi, it seems to me that Bono changed the lyrics of this rap, for example in Moscow or in Helsinki. What can you hear now? ???

The extra lyrics are such a nice addition.  The "dont leave me know" part is chilling
