"I want some freedom for my people"
The other day, on a whim, I downloaded some old U2. Specifically, The Joshua Tree album and the Rattle and Hum album. When these came out in the 80's I bought them on cassette and proceeded to wear. them. out! Once the tapes died, I neglected to replace them, but I've always been fond of the songs on the rare occasions that I heard them somewhere. So, I'm swimming in the soothing midnight waters of blessed nostalgia.

Hawkmoon 269

Like a desert needs rain
Like a town needs a name
I need your love

Like a drifter needs a room
Hawkmoon
I need your love
I need your love

Like a rhythm unbroken
Like drums in the night
Like sweet soul music
Like sunlight
I need your love

Like coming home
And you don't know where you've been
Like black coffee
Like nicotine
I need your love (I need your love)
I need your love (I need your love)
I need your love (I need your love)

When the night has no end
And the day yet to begin
As the room spins around
I need your love
I need your love

Like a Phoenix rising needs a holy tree
Like the sweet revenge of a bitter enemy
I need your love

Like the hot needs the sun
Like honey on her tongue
Like the muzzle of a gun
Like oxygen
I need your love (I need your love)
I need your love (I need your love)
I need your love (I need your love)

When the night has no end
And the day yet to begin
As the room spins around
I need your love

I need your love...
[x 9]

Like thunder needs rain (Bono screams this part!)
Like a preacher needs pain
Like tongues of flame
Like a sheet stained
I need your love
I need your love

Like a needle in a vein
Like someone to blame
Like a thought unchained
Like a runaway train
I need your love

I need your love...
[x 7]

Like faith needs a doubt
Like a freeway out
I need your love

Like powder needs a spark
Like lies need the dark
I need your love

In the heart of the heat of the love
In the heart of the heat of the love...

BTW, I sometimes find lyrics posted in journals annoying, so feel free not to click the cut. Can you do it?
