Beautiful Day - U2

the heart is a bloom,
shoots up through the stony ground.
there's no room,
no space to rent in this town.
you're out of luck,
and the reason that you had to care.
the traffic is stuck,
and you're not moving anywhere.
you thought you'd found a friend,
to take you out of this place.
someone you could lend a hand in return for grace.

it's a beautiful day..
the sky falls, and you feel like,
it's a beautiful day..
don't let it get away

you're on the road,
but you've got no destination
you're in the mud,
in the maze of her imagination
you love this town,
even if that doesn't ring true
you've been all over, and it's been all over you

see the world in green and blue,
see China right in front of you,
see the canyons broken by cloud,
see the tuna fleets clearing the sea out,
see the Bedouin fires at night,
see the oil fields at first light,
and see the bird with a leaf in her mouth,
sfter the flood all the colours came out.

what you don't have,
you don't need it now,
what you don't know,
you can feel it somehow,
what you don't have,
you don't need it now,
don't need it now . . .
it's a beautiful day...
