#PowerBalladWednesday – U2 “Mysterious Ways”

Johnny, take a walk with your sister the moon
Let her pale light in to fill up your room
You’ve been living underground, eating from a can
You’ve been running away, from what you don’t understand (Look)


She’s slippy, you’re sliding down
She’ll be there, when you hit the ground


It’s all right, it’s all right, it’s all right
She moves in mysterious ways
It’s all right, it’s all right, it’s all right
She moves in mysterious ways, oh


Johnny, take a dive with your sister in the rain
Let her talk about the things you can’t explain
To touch is to heal, to hurt is to steal
If you want to kiss the sky, better learn how to kneel
On your knees, boy


She’s the wave, she turns the tide
She sees the man inside the child


It’s all right, it’s all right, it’s all right
She moves in mysterious ways, yeah
It’s all right, it’s all right, it’s all right


She moves in mysterious ways, yeah, oh, ah
It’s all right, it’s all right, it’s all right
Lift my days, light up my nights, oh


One day you’ll look back, and you’ll see
Where you were held now by this love
While you could stand there
You could move on this moment
Follow this feeling


It’s all right, it’s all right, it’s all right
She moves in mysterious ways
It’s all right, it’s all right, it’s all right
She moves in mysterious ways, oh


Move you, spirits move you (It’s all right, it’s all right, it’s all right)
Move, spirits move you, oh, yeah (She moves in mysterious ways)
Does it move you, she moves with it (It’s all right, it’s all right, it’s all right)
Lift my days, and light up my nights, oh

U2 are an Irish rock band from Dublin, formed in 1976. The group consists of Bono (lead vocals and rhythm guitar), the Edge (lead guitar, keyboards, and backing vocals), Adam Clayton (bass guitar), and Larry Mullen Jr. (drums and percussion). Initially rooted in post-punk, U2’s musical style has evolved throughout their career, yet has maintained an anthemic quality built on Bono’s expressive vocals and the Edge’s chiming, effects-based guitar sounds. Their lyrics, often embellished with spiritual imagery, focus on personal and sociopolitical themes. Popular for their live performances, the group have staged several ambitious and elaborate tours over their career.
