Staring at the Sun

April 25th, it was the date in which the Pop Mart Tour started in Las Vegas, 10 years ago (I’ll tell more details about it on the next post), meanwhile it is time for the song of the month.This song is pretty special as well as the others of the POP album, but this one made me feel lots of things, it took me to another world (seriously), the way Edge plays guitar in this song is amazing, so emotional, some of the lyrics talk about love, and it matched perfectly with the psychodelic video directed by Jake Scott, who created and strange but quite artistic atmosphere.

Here’s the video, check it out it is one of my favourite U2’s videos!


And here you can listen to
Staring at the Sun in a great acoustic performance Live from Mexico City!

Enjoy!

It’s been a long hot summer
let’s go undercover
Don’t try too hard to think… don’t think at all

I’m not the only one starin’ at the sun
Afraid of what you’d find if you took a look inside
Not just deaf and dumb i’m staring at the sun
Not the only one who’s happy to go blind

There’s an insect in your ear if you scratch it won’t disappear
It’s gonna itch and burn and sting
Do you want to see what the scratching brings
Waves that leave me out of reach
Breaking on your back like a beach…
Will we ever live in peace?
Cause those that can’t do often have to
Those that can’t do often have to… preach

To the ones staring at the sun…
Afraid of what you’ll find if you took a look inside
Not just deaf and dumb… staring at the sun
I’m not the only one who’d rather go blind

Intransigence is all around… military is still in town
Armour plated suits and ties… daddy just won’t say goodbye
Referee won’t blow the whistle God is good but will HE listen
I’m nearly great
But there’s something I’m missing I left in the duty free
Though you never really belonged to me

You’re not the only one staring at the sun
Afraid of what you’d find if you stepped back inside
I’m not sucking my thumb I’m staring at the sun
Not the only one who’s happy to go blind
