U2: Every Breaking Wave

U2 performing their new song Every Breaking Wave during their 2nd 360° Tour concert in Helsinki, Finland, Olympic Stadium on August 21, 2010. Lyrics are as follows:

Every breaking wave
On the shore
Tells the next one there’ll be one more
Every gambler knows
That to lose
Is what you’re really there for

Somewhere else, fearlessness
Now I’m speaking to an answer phone
Every silent leaf
On the breeze
Winter wouldn’t leave it alone

Ay hey now
Ay hey now

I don’t know if I’m that strong
I don’t know if I’m that strong
Don’t know if I’m that strong
To be somebody
To need someone

Every sailor knows that the sea
Is a friend made enemy
Every shipwrecked soul
Knows what it is
To live without intimacy
I thought I heard the master’s voice
It’s hard to listen while you preach

Like every broken wave
On the shore
This world’s as far as I can reach

Ay hey now
Ay hey now

I don’t know if I’m that strong
I don’t know if I’m that strong
Don’t know if I’m that strong
Got to be somebody
To need someone

The waves know
We’re on the rocks
Drowning is no sin

And you know
My heart is
The same place yours has been

We know
The fear of winning
Should we end before we begin

The waves know
We’re on the rocks
Drowning is no sin

You know
My heart is
The same place yours has been

We know
The fear of winning
Should we end before we begin
