U2 : Lemon (1993) Album Version


See through in the sunlight
She wore lemon But never in the daylight
She’s gonna make you cry She’s gonna make you whisper and moan
And when you’re dry She draws her water from the stone And I feel
Like I’m slowly, slowly, slowly slipping under And I feel
Like I’m holding onto nothing She wore lemon
To color in the cold grey night She had heaven
And she held on so tight A man makes a picture
A moving picture Through the light projected
He can see himself up close A man captures color
A man likes to stare He turns his money into light to look for her And I feel
Like I’m drifting, drifting, drifting from the shore And I feel
Like I’m swimming out to her Midnight is where the day begins Lemon
See through in the sunlight A man builds a city
With banks and cathedrals A man melts the sand so he can
See the world outside A man makes a car
(She’s your destination) And builds roads to run them on
A man dreams of leaving But he always stays behind And these are the days
When our work has come asunder And these are the days
When we look for something other Midnight is where the day begins A man makes a picture
A moving picture Through the light projected
He can see himself up close A man captures color
(She’s your destination) A man likes to stare
There’s no sleeping there He turns his money into light to look for her (she’s imagination) Lemon
She is the dreamer She’s imagination
Through the light projected
He can see himself up close

  1. Back in the day, I used to keep MTv on just so I could watch this video. This is when the "M" stood for Music and not Miscellaneous. Good times!

  2. Very cool club tune my girlfriend danced to this for me back in the day will never forget it thanx u2

  3. this was u2s attempt to fit in with the music of the time, no need to adapt, do what you do best im glad they ditched this period

  4. 🤮🤮🤮🤮 to that ‘who’s listening comment’

  5. I love lemons with salt 🍋🍚

    I want a handsome man to tell me..

    She want, LEMON! 💛

  6. To this day, has there ever been a song that sounded remotely as original or powerful as this song? A lot of "fans" loathe it, but I find it one of their absolute best… truly sounds one of a kind
